Dr Chris Wood (DClin, MSc, BSc Psychology)
I am a qualified clinical psychologist offering private cognitive behavioural therapy and psychotherapy.
I specialise in working with anxiety disorders (generalised anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, OCD, PTSD)
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked for the NHS for over fifteen years and as a qualified clinical psychologist for the past ten years.
I have worked with adults and young people with a range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, hearing voices, bereavement, panic disorder, substance misuse, anger management problems, sexual dysfunction, and many other issues.
I obtained my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Manchester University in 2008. I have since obtained numerous training certificates and, before I left, was teaching at kings college and supervising trainee clinical psychologists.
I have a number of publications around anxiety and autistic spectrum conditions.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My standard fee is £65 per 50 minute session at my clinic or £50 for a home visit.
I am currently offering home visits to cut down costs.
