Drawing from her specialised training and experience, Dr Mitchell has developed expertise in various areas of psychology. She has worked extensively with adult and older adults in the NHS Mental Health Services and for NHS Health Psychology Services, including memory clinics, neuropsychology, and Neurorehabilitation.

She thrives on connecting with diverse individuals and fostering collaborative relationships within the therapeutic setting. On what is most fulfilling to her as a psychologist, she says, ‘It is a privilege to help people manage their difficulties, reduce distress, learn new strategies, and build resilience in a way that allows them to live a meaningful life that is in line with their values.’
When she is not immersed in her work, Dr Mitchell enjoys time with her family and friends and is a busy mother to two young children. Driven by her love for the outdoors, she actively engages in activities like running and exploring national trusts and areas of natural beauty. Her wanderlust takes her to far-off destinations, where she immerses herself in new countries and cultures, having already embarked on adventures in Vietnam, Dubai, Australia, and South Africa. To relax, she practices yoga and indulges in reading and cooking.
Dr Mitchell exemplifies the qualities of a skilled and empathetic clinical psychologist. Through her expertise, warmth, and genuine commitment to her patient’s well-being, she continues to make a positive impact on the lives of those she treats.
