Guildford Psychologist and CBT Therapist

online psychologist guildford ben meadWelcome

My name is Ben and I am a Clinical Psychologist, Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) and Counsellor. I have clinics in Guildford (Surrey), Basingstoke (Hampshire), and also offer secure online video appointments. My aim is to help those who are struggling with low mood, anxiety and relationship difficulties / break-ups.


Screening / Recommendation service: I’m conscious that from just looking at websites, it can be very difficult to find the right psychologist to help. Furthermore, that wait times can be quite long for practitioners at the moment. Given this, in addition to my clinic, I have set up a screening/recommendation service to help you find the best psychologist for you or your child.

Having worked privately now for over ten years, I’ve built connections with a number of other Psychologists. During our initial discussion we will discuss whether either myself or one of my colleagues would be best to help. Should it be a colleague, then I would be happy to link you up directly with the said practitioner letting you know their wait time in advance to ensure you get the best help for you. Currently, some of the online psychologists I link with have immediate availability. This initial discussion is not charged. 


I tailor treatment to you: although I specialise in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I also incorporate Counselling approaches, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). We will work together to find the treatment best suited to you and your goals.

My extensive training and experience ensures I am able to help with a number of difficulties, including (but not limited to):

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loneliness
  • Grief / Loss
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress (PTSD)
  • Relationship difficulties (including break-ups)
  • Social anxiety
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Work / exam stress

I practise out of a calm and peaceful therapy room at the Shere GP Surgery on the edge of Guildford. The surgery is within easy reach of Guildford centre, Dorking, Woking, Cranleigh and Godalming and has excellent parking facilities. It is also a 10 minute walk from Gomshall train station. I also practise out of a health clinic in central Guildford and in Basingstoke, just off the M3, within easy reach of Winchester, Newbury, Alton and Fleet. Secure online video consultations are also available.

If you have any questions about whether I could help you, or about the clinic, please feel free to contact me.
