I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist who has worked for over 25 years in the NHS. In addition to my NHS work, I now offer a small private clinic in York and Leeds, offering help to individuals who are facing psychological challenges and difficulties.
I use a number of different psychological approaches, tailoring the therapy to what will be the most helpful.
I am confidant offering psychological input to people who are struggling with emotional problems such as anxiety, depression and low self-esteem.
It may be that there has been a recent sequence of life events that have caused you stress, or perhaps there has been an issue that you have struggled with over the years.
I believe that it is very important to listen carefully to my client`s experiences, then work with them to find a way through their difficulties.
This may involve them developing a better understanding of how they are thinking and feeling and why. It may also involve developing new skills or starting to accept a transition in your life and continuing the things that are the most important to you.
