My name is Dean King and I have over 25 years experience helping people from all walks of life overcome life’s challenges and difficulties, such as anxiety, depression and stress.
Initially, I trained as a Nurse in the National Health Service in 1992 and developed my psychological therapy skills through Keele University, from where I received a Certificate, Diploma and Master of Science Degree (MSc) in Counselling Psychology.
For many years I ran and developed a Psychological Therapy team in the NHS, offering Counselling, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and other therapeutic approaches.
Parallel to my NHS career, I was also for many years a Reservist in The British Armed forces, more latterly in a clinical role supporting service personnel with psychological and mental health issues brought about by their military service. I deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan in this capacity.
Although I initially trained in the Humanistic tradition, I would describe my therapy style as Integrative, blending a number of approaches with my extensive real world life and professional experience to serve the unique and individual needs of my clients.
