Dr Ian Anderson
I am a Chartered Psychologist registered with the HCPC with over 30 years of experience. I am separately qualified in various fields of applied Psychology including Clinical Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Counselling Psychology and Occupational Psychology.
I have worked in private practice with over two thousand patients and supervised more than 100 therapists. I am separately qualified and trained in a number of therapeutic styles including Insight Based Therapy, CBT, and Existential Therapy supporting a truly integrated eclectic approach. I am a firm believer that matching the right therapy delivered by the right therapist to an individual is the key to therapeutic success.
I now deliver all my counselling and therapy by the following methods:
- Video conferencing
- Telephone sessions
- Real-time online chat
I work with all psychological and emotional problems including:
- Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
I also offer couples counselling focused upon relationship difficulties with each of you in a separate location if you choose.
I am aware that working remotely with a counsellor is something that few people have experienced. For that reason I offer an initial free session in order that you can decide whether this is right for you and I can determine whether I can help. Your first session can usually be arranged within days.
I offer a sliding scale of fees based upon clients' means.
