Dr Jennifer Glover

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with 10 years NHS experience. My approach to therapy is friendly, compassionate, client centred, and non-judgemental. I strongly believe that everyone has the right to live an enjoyable and fulfilled life and I see my role as providing the client with the support they need to need to achieve their goals.

My theoretical approach is integrative; drawing upon my training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), personal construct psychotherapy (PCP), mindfulness and narrative therapy. I have also completed specialist training in the diagnostic assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and specialise in the assessment and diagnosis of individuals who mask symptoms, particularly the nuances of females on the autistic spectrum.

Experience

Throughout my career to date I have gained experience working in a range of settings and with a range of presentations. The predominance of my NHS employment has been within children’s mental health services and acute adult services. Alongside this I have also gained specialist experience in perinatal services, paediatric services and learning disability services.
