Dr Greg StocksPsychologist,HCPC - Clin. Psych.01905 958309
As part of being a Psychologist, I am passionate about working with people, finding where they can gain more power in their life to affect the changes they want to see. I work with people with a wide range of difficulties and am keen to help them to contextualise their difficulties within their life experiences, to support the dropping of the toxic self-blame which often keeps people snagged, and to think about alternative ways of relating to themselves and others which opens up choices about where they might take their life in the future.
In my practice I always hope to express compassion, that is sensitive to the needs of those I'm communicating with. In this sense, I think I'm a friendly guy, and would welcome your inquiry.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist with expertise working across Adult Mental Health, Physical Health (Long-Term Conditions) and Child, Adolescent and Family settings.
Clinically, the models I draw on include:
- Third wave cognitive behavioural models (predominantly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused approaches)
- Cognitive analytic theory
- Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Attachment based approaches (including mentalization based ideas)
- Critical approaches, drawing on the role of adversity and oppression (e.g. Power Threat Meaning Framework)
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

I work as part of a socially conscious organisation, hemotion (www.hemotion-uk.com), where profits are reinvested to projects increasing access to psychological support for men and boys.
