I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist who has worked for over 25 years in the NHS, helping people with psychological and physical health problems.
In addition to my NHS work, I now offer a private clinic in York on Thursday mornings, 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 and effective for the person in front of me.
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 you have experienced a recent sequence of stressful life events, 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 coming to a new perspective on your life.
Psychological sessions can help you to identify what really matters to you in life and turn towards a more fulfilling future.
