About me

Hello, and a warm welcome to you. I'm Andy, and I'm pleased that you are looking at my details in this directory. I am a highly qualified and experienced clinical psychologist with a clinic near the centre of York. Prior to working in private practice I worked in mental health services for the NHS for many years. I offer individual therapy to adults (across the age range) with a wide range of difficulties including:

  • Anxiety
  • Panic
  • Depression
  • Low mood
  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Grief
  • Self-esteem
  • Relationship problems.

I will offer you a safe and confidential space to talk about your difficulties. I use my knowledge, experience and training to enable us to develop an in depth understanding of the problem (known as a formulation), which is based on your unique personal circumstances and experience. This understanding helps us to develop a psychological therapy that is tailor made to you as an individual. This is always done in collaboration with you, with respect and compassion.

I am registered as a practitioner psychologist with the HCPC professional regulatory body. I am a full member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Chartered member of the Division of Clinical Psychology.
