Come Inside..

Gravy Banana Ltd - Mental Health Done DiFfFeReNtLy was established in November 2019 by Dr Emily Barney.


Emily is a qualified Clinical Psychologist in the NHS, a registered Psychotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist and has over 15 years experience of helping people with mental health problems in a range of contexts, including, prisons, chronic pain management and brain injury rehabilitation.


Emily has a special interest in the treatment of psychological trauma and teenage mental health and has a fearless optimism and respect to the treatment of mental illness, and has a playful and lighthearted approach to this very serious and often negative topic.


Emily is completely committed to contributing to reducing the stigma of mental health problems, increasing the quality, accessibility and availability of mental health services in the community and telling anyone that will listen all about the fabulous resource we ALL have - our amazing brains. 


Gravy Banana Ltd is a private mental health service, created with the intention to deliver the highest quality services for common mental health problems available on the high street. As Founder and Director, Emily personally delivers all of the services. Clients of Gravy Banana experience a modern and highly effective therapy not widely available in the public sector.

​We believe strongly in the value of playfulness, positivity and trying not to take ourselves too seriously and also in the power of knowledge and research. Our services have been designed specifically with these values in mind.
