Dr Nick Earley, CPsychol, BPS, HCPC
A Resilient, Healthier You.
In the light of current unprecedented circumstances, we may find ourselves struggling to adjust, feeling distressed or battling anxiety. In these trying times it is essential we address these issues early. Therefore, I offer online therapy to individuals who feels they need support. Online therapy has been demonstrated as an evidence-based treatment medium.
I'm a HCPC registered and Chartered Clinical Psychologist who holds a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Edinburgh and undertook my cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) training at King’s College, London.
I'm an open, warm and compassionate person who believes meaningful change can be achieved in the context of a strong therapeutic relationship.
I have extensive experience in the NHS and private sector supporting clients overcome common and complex mental health difficulties. I draw on a number of different therapeutic approaches to help clients gain an understanding of their difficulties or life challenges and support them in implementing strategies to make meaningful changes to move forward.
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:
making sense of what may be causing your difficulties;
connecting with different aspects of personality;
understanding the intricacies of your feelings and emotions;
better understanding of how you relate to others and how to improve your relationships;
managing strong emotions, such as anger, sadness, guilt and shame;
changing behaviours or patterns that cause tension in your life;
finding ways to move forward;
developing mental and physical resilience strategies.
More specifically, I can support with anxiety, depression, relationships problems, affairs, family issues, addictions, bullying, anger issues, impulsive behaviours, and personality difficulties.
My clinical experience further includes but is not limited to: panic attacks, stress, low confidence, low self-esteem, life-crisis, life transitions, work-related issues, loss, grief, trauma (including sexual trauma), abuse (including emotional, physical or sexual), identity issues and physical symptoms with no adequate medical explanation
Personal development: 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
Your wellbeing is my primary concern. I will support you to decide what therapeutic approach could help you to increase understanding, strengthen confidence, move forward, and achieve your goals.
The purpose of the first session is to meet each other and decide whether we are a good fit. Attending the first session does not mean you have to commit to therapy together.
I see my first meeting with a new client as an assessment session. I will ask a number of questions to gain a good understanding of your difficulties and identify your therapeutic needs. This is important so we can identify together how therapy can be useful to you. Additionally, in the first session, I explain how I work (for example confidentiality, cancellations, holidays, fees) and what you can expect from me.
The first session is also a good opportunity for you to ask any questions about my role, experience and training as a Clinical Psychologist.

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.
