Paula Conway - Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist
I am a Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with over 20 years experience in the NHS and private practice. I trained at the Tavistock Clinic in London and held a Consultant post there for 10 years working with adults, adolescents and young people in care. I have extensive experience working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety and relationship issues, as well as bi-polar disorder and more complex personality difficulties. I offer an in depth approach to address underlying patterns which can impact on work, relationships and emotional and mental well being.
In a safe and calm environment I will think with you about your concerns and work with you to make real and sustainable change in your life, working at a pace that is comfortable for you.
My practice is based in a tranquil environment with parking. You will need to drive to access this location.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 1993 and as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist in 2004 and have worked as a Consultant in the NHS, as well as for local authorities and in private practice for 20 years. I am trained to provide intensive psychotherapy from once to three times per week if this is needed.
I am currently registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fee is £50-£70 per session for individual psychotherapy, depending on individual circumstances and frequency of sessions.
