ABOUT ME

MY WORK AS A CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST

Clinical Psychology is a three-year post-graduate training that takes place after completion of a psychology degree and often, other relevant courses. My training was integrative, meaning that it incorporates a number of psychological perspectives. In my case these perspectives were primarily PsychodynamicSystemic and Cognitive Behavioural.

 

Integrative therapy is based on the assumption that no one therapy suits everybody. People may need different approaches depending on their presenting problem, their aims for therapy and how ready they are to change.

 

During my time with the NHS I have gained extensive experience of a wide range of psychological problems. This includes working in Psychiatric Inpatient Wards and Community Mental Health Teams, and overseas in India and Bosnia. More recently, I undertook training in Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and subsequently Interpersonal Group Psychotherapy. I have recently left the NHS to concentrate on developing an independent practice in Lewes.
