Professional background and experience

Over the last 40 years I have been involved in developing a range of Nursing & Clinical Psychology services to the people of the North East of England.

I currently work part-time in the NHS providing Clinical Psychology services to the Newcastle Community Stroke Team and a Community Mental Health team.

At the core of my work is a person centred philosophy. I work integratively and remain curious through our work together, recognising the importance of relationships and how they can help us to grow. I have undertaken personal psychotherapy (individual & group) over the last 15 years.

A variety of journal articles over the years have been based around my clinical work.

What to expect from our Therapists

We carry out rigorous checks and vet all our therapists before they join the team. They must meet with our high standards of professional specification which includes:

This means that the mental health professional you see will be qualified, experienced and competent.

We are a private mental health clinic and have a number of therapists with different specialities. Because of this, we can offer therapies to help with a wide range of mental health issues from Anxiety to PTSD and child psychology.

First, we carry out a triage step during a 15-minute free initial telephone consultation. Depending on the challenges you’re facing, we will then recommend a counsellor, CBT therapist or clinical psychologist.

We also have clinic locations throughout the North, so there is usually one not too far from you.

As a result, we can usually offer an appointment quickly and at a time and place convenient for you. But, above all, tailored to your needs.

Please note, not all of our therapists work from all our clinic locations. Contact us for information on which therapists it is possible to see at which locations.

As well as Neil we have a number of other Clinical Psychologists, CBT Therapists and Counsellors in our team.
