Dr. Bishop has private practices in Harley Street and Staffordshire, where she works to support children experiencing behavioural and emotional difficulties. She helps patients and their families, spanning all ages, working through current issues and the consequences of a former trauma such as sexual abuse. Her work provides psychological and emotional scaffolding, enabling recovery.
She specialises in practising cognitive and behavioural therapy. Her approach takes in discursive analysis and utilizes the traditional ways of providing psychological support, moving patients forward to adapt and change as they require.

Adults are enabled to look at all the key psychological factors impacting upon their life; they can be heard and given professional support. Patients may be referred as required, but the primary consideration is that they are listened to.
