About me

My name is Dr Ian Mallandain and I am a Chartered Clinical & Counselling Psychologist, as well as an Oxford trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.

I have worked in a variety of healthcare settings, including the NHS for over 20 years, and The Priory Hospital, Roehampton, for 6 years. During this time, I have treated a wide range of psychological problems, which include:

  • Addiction
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Pain management
  • Panic attacks
  • Phobias
  • Stress

My approach is based on evidence based practice, using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). In terms of what to expect from therapy, my starting point involves listening to what the person brings to therapy in a non-judgemental way, helping him or her to make sense of their predicament, and then collaboratively identify and develop strategies, to bring about effective change.

As a Chartered Psychologist, I work according to a strict code of ethics and practice, and aim to offer a highly professional service, which is focused on the individual needs of the client.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
