Dr Ewan Lundie
I am a fully trained Chartered Clinical Psychologist.
Lenzie Psychology allows you to avoid NHS referrals and long waiting times.
I understand that when an individual needs help, they need it now - not 6 months down the line.
WHY SEE A PSYCHOLOGIST?
In my experience, an effective course of treatment will draw upon a range of therapies, rather than just concentrating on one.
My formal training as a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, combined with over 30 years of experience both in private work and within the NHS, allows me to use a number of different therapies and treatments. I can assess which would work best for you and how to develop an individually tailored treatment plan to meet your specific needs.
Seeking help takes a great deal of courage, but please be assured that you are in very capable hands and I will do my best to make you feel safe, secure and comfortable at all times, and most importantly, I am here to listen to you.
ABOUT OUR SESSIONS
I will do my best to understand what you are going through and I am happy to give you the time and space to discuss how you feel, what's making you feel the way you do and how best to tackle the issues effecting you.
I think it's important to feel comfortable during our sessions, and that you feel able to discuss any issues freely and without fear of being judged.
It is very likely I have dealt with your issue before, or something similar.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working with the Public Services in various roles for over 30 years, and qualified as a Chartered Clinical and Forensic Psychologist with the British Psychological Society after completing my undergraduate and Doctoral Level Training over 7 years at Glasgow University.
I have been working at Consultant level for the last 15 years, and have worked both within the NHS and Independent Services for over 20 years.
My practice work is spread across a range of areas, mostly emotional well-being/mental health, neuropsychology and forensic.
My experience includes working with charities such as Childline, The Mental Health Tribunal for Scotland, the State Hospital, The Scottish Prison Service, The Risk Management Authority, the Scottish Government, the Council for Europe, various neurorehabilitation services and the NHS.
I am an honorary lecturer at Edinburgh, Glasgow and Caledonian Universities and registered with the Health Professions Council (HCPC) as a Forensic and Clinical Psychologist.
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
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Neuro Psychological assessment
Assessment of child abuse and neglect
Work with persons at risk of people committing serious, violent and sexual crimes
Assessment for child/family social work services
Like most things in life, you get what you pay for.
My one hour session fee is £100 per session, and although a straightforward counselling service would be cheaper, you will not get the same level of experience, training and knowledge that you will with a fully trained and accredited Chartered Clinical Psychologist.
Whilst a Counselling service has it's place, working with a Chartered Clinical Psychologist offers a totally different level of support. I believe I can offer a more comprehensive service, pulling on my theoretical knowledge, practical experience and formal training to create a bespoke treatment programme specifically designed to meet individual needs.
I look at each case on it's own merit and work with you to formulate the best course of action that will produce the best results, not only in the short to medium term, but in the longer term, when the results are truly felt.
Remember I am here to get you where you want to go, and I am happy to give you the support you need to make sure we have a successful outcome.
We would like to welcome you to our comfortably furnished offices in Lenzie, which are 100 yards from Lenzie Station.
There we will invite you in to one of our private consulting rooms with a cup of tea or coffee, and at YOUR PACE, we will discuss what is making you feel stuck. Most of our sessions last for 1 hour and during this time, we will focus on the issues most important to you and work out a way to help you move on.
If you are happy with my service, we will make an appointment for another session and take it from there.
If you are still hesitant, I am happy to speak to you on the phone so you can get a feel for me and how I work, and I can get a feel for you and how I can help.
There is no obligation to proceed with treatment, but I hope I will be able to reassure you that you are taking the first positive steps to a better mental health.
