Clinical Psychologist

Lark Peart – Online therapist

Ensuring that you can find someone with the right training, expertise, and background to help you is very important when starting psychological therapy. The relationship between the client and the therapist is central to change. I invite you to learn a little bit about me to help you decide whether I would be the best therapist for you.

Lark Peart

WHO AM I?

I am an Australian Clinical Psychologist and have practice experience encompassing Australia, the United Kingdom, and Denmark. As a Clinical Psychologist, I was trained and educated for seven years prior to graduating. This education taught me to view clients as whole people who are experiencing difficulties, rather than as a group of symptoms or problems. I strive to work collaboratively, honestly, and warmly with each client. While therapy can feel like an unknown, how we will achieve change should not be a mystery. As such, I am transparent with clients, and discuss each stage of therapy as it occurs so that the client is informed and feels consulted.

WHY ONLINE

My psychological services are available online only. This gives me the opportunity to offer therapy to people who may have difficulties coming to the office due to personal and geographical concerns, or simply because it is easier and less time-consuming.  The efficacy of online therapy has been researched more extensively since the Covid-19 virus, and to date the results indicate that online therapy can be as effective as face-to-face therapy.  I’ve received only positive feedback from my patients regarding working together online, and my personal experiences in delivering online therapy have also shown me that significant change can be made in the lives of those I work with through this medium. I am proud to continue to be connected to the MacFarlane group in Copenhagen. This gives me a home-base to work from, and part of a community of professionals that I would otherwise miss.  Establishing rapport and a relationship online is something I care deeply about, and have learned many things over time. I focus on ensuring that you are understood, and our communication is clear given the loss of some body-language information in the online medium. Additionally, the flexibility allowed by online therapy may help you to attend therapy consistently, which contributes to positive change over time.

PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

I am a registered Clinical Psychologist, and I received a Bachelor of Psychology with Honors from the University of Tasmania, Australia, and a Doctor of Psychology (Clinical) from the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. I am registered with the Danish Supervisory Board of Psychological Practice, and the Health and Care Professions Council in the United Kingdom. I have worked in Australia, Scotland, and Denmark, with patients from a range of cultural backgrounds. As a result, I understand the cultural issues often faced by expats, and how these issues can influence psychological well being. I strive to provide warm, empathic, and client focused therapy to help each client improve their lives in the way that is important to them.

STARTING THERAPY

Starting therapy may feel daunting. However, clients tend to find that they feel comfortable online, and that they are glad that they sought help. I strive to make the process as straightforward and supportive as possible, and clients should feel respected and listened to at all times.

The first few sessions involve me asking relevant questions to understand what has been happening which has led the client to seek help. Together, we develop a shared understanding of their difficulties and concerns. We also develop a tailored treatment plan which we discuss and agree on before treatment begins.

My approach is based on the belief that every person is doing the best that they can with the emotional and practical resources they have. Often people have found novel and ingenious ways of coping with problems, but these solutions may not be working as well as they have in the past. I work in collaboration with the client to build resources and resilience which will allow them to make positive changes in their life.

RESEARCH AND PSYCHOLOGY

Psychology is a science, and we are learning more about which treatments are effective all the time. As a Clinical Psychologist, it is important that I keep up to date with the latest research, and use this in my therapy practice to ensure that clients are treated ethically, effectively, and efficiently. As such, I utilise evidence-based treatments which are tailored to the needs of the client as an individual to help them to achieve the best outcome possible. I am trained in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), eye movement, desensitisation, and reprocessing (EMDR), mindfulness, and prolonged exposure, to help clients better cope with difficult thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. These therapies are scientifically tested and supported, and can help clients address specific mental health disorders, as well as develop skills in relaxation, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, stress management, interpersonal conflicts, and problem-solving.
As a therapist, I am able to assist to address a range of conditions and disorders, including depression, stress, anxiety, anorexia and bulimia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and managing difficult emotional experiences which may arise from life challenges such as work stress, or moving to a new country.

I look forward to meeting you online, and helping you to live your best life.
