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.

  • Bsc (Hons) Psychology Degree - The Open University
  • BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering Degree - University of Sheffield
  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology - University of Birmingham

Further information

It can feel daunting to take the first step in finding a therapist that fits with what you need. I offer a free telephone consultation to gather some initial information about the difficulties you are experiencing, discuss what you need, and arrange an initial appointment. You can contact me via my mobile, email address or website.

My private practice is based at 105 The Mount, near York city centre. It is easily accessible via bus, rail or cycle. There is free on street car parking nearby.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified

Appointments are upstairs (and there is no lift in the building). I am usually able to arrange more accessible space for appointments when needed. Please ask about this on enquiry.
