Dr Nick Earley, CPsychol, BPS, HCPC
A Resilient, Healthier You
Hello, I'm Nick, a warm, dedicated and compassionate clinical psychologist with extensive experience helping clients overcome mental health problems, performance challenges and improve overall wellbeing.
I believe meaningful change can be achieved in the context of a strong therapeutic relationship. I see therapy as working with the client as a team to understand their problem, then equipping them with the tools and strategies to overcome their life challenges or barriers, enabling them to focus on what is important to them in life.
I have extensive experience in the NHS and private sector supporting clients overcome common and complex mental health difficulties.
I also have experience supporting sports and business professionals successfully overcome personal and/or professionalchallenges to reach peak performance.
The therapy I offer is science-based. I draw on a number of different therapeutic approaches, such as CBT, and tailor every intervention to individual client and their life context in order to get the best outcomes for the client.
What I can help with
Mental health problems
In my private practice, I see people who may be faced with a variety of issues, including:
Anxiety, depression, worry, panic attacks, relationships problems, family issues, addictions, bullying, anger issues, impulsive behaviours, and personality difficulties.
My clinical experience further includes but is not limited to: stress, low confidence, low self-esteem, life-crisis, life transitions, work-related issues, loss, grief, trauma (including her sexual trauma), abuse (including emotional, physical or sexual), identity issues and physical symptoms with no adequate medical explanation
I also support professionals to surmount internal and external challenges to achieve peak performance and realise their full potential.
I offer short-term (8 to 12 weeks), medium-term (up to 24 weeks) and long-term (a year or more) therapy.
I work in accordance with professional practice guidelines (BPS & HCPC) and I am committed to continuing professional development. I regularly review the most recent research and attend training to keep up-to-date with the best therapeutic models, ensuring I provide you with the best intervention.
What to expect in your first session
I will support you to decide what therapeutic approach could help you to increase understanding, strengthen confidence, move forward, and achieve your goals.
The first meeting with a new client is a chance to gain a good understanding of your difficulties and identify your therapeutic needs and goals. This is important so we can identify together how therapy can be useful to you.
The first session is also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions about my role, experience and training as a Clinical Psychologist.
