OFFICE MANAGER
Professional background and experience

My role at Select Psychology is to provide and deliver a comprehensive, confidential and efficient administrative service to the client, the team and to the business.  I actively work with the team to ensure ongoing development which in turn creates a smooth running service.

As the first point of contact at Select Psychology, I strive to deliver the most beneficial support available.  I am always approachable to answer any queries, concerns or ongoing difficulties. I listen and communicate sensitively and discreetly, ensuring everyone receives the most appropriate information available.

Before I worked at Select Psychology, I worked in the NHS gaining over 25 years of experience in an administrative setting, rising in that time to managing a busy multi-disciplinary health psychology office, within mental health services.

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.

If you’re interested in booking an appointment, first book a free initial telephone consultation here.
