Dr Matt Wilkinson
I am a Clinical Psychologist providing online counselling and online therapy using Skype. I have worked in private healthcare settings and the NHS, and have helped people recover from problems including depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, relationship difficulties, OCD, body dysmorphia and personality disorders .
I believe that a good relationship is at the heart of effective therapy. My work is informed by a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, but I also employ ideas from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and humanistic psychotherapy. Prior to entering full-time independent practice, I worked at the Maudsley Hospital in London. I contribute to a research team at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (Kings College London), where I have provided teaching to Trainee Psychologists.
I support flexible therapy sessions (£70 per 50 minutes) and will consider concessions. Please contact me if you wish to arrange a consultation or have any other questions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and a masters degree in Psychology (Distinction). I also have an undergraduate degree in Philosophy from the University of Bristol.
I have worked in the NHS and private healthcare settings for six years. This has included work in many different kinds of services including addictions, older adults, child and adolescent mental health teams, inpatient settings, primary care therapies services and neuropsychiatric services.
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.
