Dr. Adam Danquah
I am a Clinical Psychologist and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist working in private practice in south Manchester. I am registered with both the HCPC and the BPC.
I can offer one-to-one psychotherapy for problems such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, family issues, abuse, bereavement and trauma.
Starting off I usually suggest two consultation sessions, to work out with you the nature and development of your difficulties and whether I would be able to help you.
By the end of the consultation process, we will have worked out a focus for therapy and agreed a start date from there.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist (The University of Manchester) in 2007 and then as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist (Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust) in 2016.
I have worked in the NHS in Adult Mental Health for over ten years, across a range of contexts, including psychological therapies, community mental health teams, mental health wards, older people's services, and neuropsychology. My work as a Clinical Psychologist has also taken me to Ghana, West Africa.
In my other work, I am a Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology at the University of Manchester. I also support the Tavistock's Psychodynamic Psychotherapy training in Manchester.
Over the years I have been influenced by a number of theories and approaches within the psychodynamic tradition, but find attachment theory - with its abiding focus on our attachments, our separations and our losses - the most compelling way to understand emotional and relational difficulties.
