Dr Chris Wood (DClin, MSc, BSc Psychology)
I am a qualified clinical psychologist offering private cognitive behavioural therapy and psychotherapy via Skype.
From 11th May I will be piloting therapy via WhatsApp. The idea is to provide support each week by providing techniques and strategies to overcome emotional difficulties. I then hope to set up WhatsApp groups for people with similar difficulties so that they can support each other. As this is a pilot I will be providing this service for free during May. Please get in touch if you are interested.
Feel free to contact me by mobile, text or email and we can discuss your issues and whether I might be able to help. I am happy to offer advice and point you in the right direction and there is no charge for this consultation.
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 am particularly interested in Autistic Spectrum Conditions.
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.
