Dr Phil Lurie

Clinical psychologist

Having worked with adolescents and adults with acne, I am aware of the
effect it can have on mental health: causing depression, social
anxiety, low self esteem and distorting perceptions in our body image,
as well as many other distressing consequences for our mood.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I am experienced in offering strategies to
reduce mental health suffering and improve positive well-being. This
can be achieved through resolving unhelpful beliefs, learning
techniques that can relax us and bring us confidence, and accepting
that whilst we all have barriers in our lives, we can engage in
behaviours that promote meaningful activity.

I have completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University
College London (UCL) and am registered with the Health and Care
Professions Council (HCPC). I have worked for over ten years with
people with acne, body dysmorphia, and other visible differences, as
well as with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder
(PTSD), sexual dysfunctions, relationship issues, and many other
mental health difficulties. I use different therapy modalities,
including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and acceptance and
commitment therapy (ACT). More than anything, I will always work with
you using a person-centered approach, which means that I conduct
therapy through empathy, non-judgement and warmth.

During the consultation, we will discuss the mental health distress
you experience as a consequence of your acne, and agree on a plan of
how best to improve your mood despite this. We will reflect on how
this has caused difficulties in your life, what it prevents you from
being able to do, and consider how best to work together to achieve
your goals.
