Dr Matthew Beadman CPsychol, DClinPsy, MSc
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and I have worked as a psychologist in the NHS and prison service for over 12 years. I specialise in the application of psychological theory to the management of physical health conditions and I work for both the NHS and hold a senior position in a private consultancy in the City of London.
I work with adults experiencing either a recognised mental health problem or other psychological, emotional or behavioural issue. This may include depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, phobias, sleep difficulties, PTSD, OCD, anger management, chronic pain, panic disorder and managing the psychological impact of physical health conditions. I use evidence-based psychological models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I am particularly interested in brief, evidence-based psychological interventions which create meaningful change for my clients within a shorter period of time. I also deliver evidence-based psychological interventions to large FTSE 100 companies to improve staff health, resilience and to promote psychological well-being.
I am the co-author of the well-reviewed self-help publication ‘The Little ACT Workbook’ and I have also published psychological research in several areas. I also supervise other psychologists. I brings curiosity, thoughtfulness and a friendly disposition to my work.
