Dr Lisa Harrow

Clinical Psychologist

MA (Hons); Doctorate in Clinical Psychology


Specialises in

I qualified as a clinical psychologist in 2007. I am an empathic and motivated practitioner, striving to apply evidence-based approaches to help individuals manage their challenges with physical and mental health. 

I currently work with the NHS Lothian Bariatric Service, a post which I have thoroughly enjoyed since 2017. Prior to this, I worked for the NHS Lothian Plastic Surgery Service, in private practice and for a number of years in adult mental health.

I draw from a number of therapeutic models, including Compassion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Schema Therapy approaches, and apply these flexibly depending on the needs of the client.
