About me

I am a highly qualified and experienced consultant psychotherapist and supervisor with 20 years experience and recognised clinical expertise in the treatment and assessment of a wide range of mental health problems (including: depression, anxiety, personality disorders and psychosis), problematic behaviours and addictions.

My guiding aim is to help each client to the point where they no longer require therapy or medication, and can cope skilfully and independently with life’s challenges, and understand how the past can impede our ability to cope with the present.

Client Testimonials:

"Meeting Patrick changed my life, in fact, I believe it has saved my life. His therapy techniques have helped me recover from an emotional breakdown that had left me feelings isolated and misunderstood. " Client GB

"I received Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic treatment from Patrick for a period of time and I found him a wonderfully skilled and talented psychotherapist. He is warm, approachable, compassionate, kind-hearted, has a very easy and professional manner.
And, of course, he is very, very highly skilled as a consultant therapist and clinical director.
I feel that his skills and exemplary manner within the psycho-therapeutic environment are second to none, and I have little doubt that without his help and his therapy I would not be here today to write this recommendation." Client ND

"Patrick is truly exceptional. His prodigious mental health expertise is matched by him being the most considerate, kind, generous, creative person. Patrick is an outstanding therapist as well as an inspired and impactful trainer." Marian Janner OBE, Chief Executive of Bright

"I have known and worked with Patrick, in a variety of ways, for many years. Not only is he a genuine and empathic person, but he also has exceptional clinical and therapy skills, formulating his clients in a holistic and person-centred manner in order to provide the most efficacious form of eclectic therapeutic interventions for them, bringing about great change in their lives. A truly inspiring clinician and individual." Dr Chris Moore, Director, Expert Psychology Consultancy
