Dr Phil Lurie - Skype and Online Clinical Psychologist
I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist working online, with broad therapy experience, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and EMDR. I completed the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London, and have international experience with children, adults and couples, especially related to expatriate and work-related issues, LGBT issues, anger management, sexual health and relationship difficulties, problems relating to noise (Tinnitus, Hyperacusis and Misophonia), as well as PTSD/trauma. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I have worked in the NHS, abroad and online with people from all over the world, with difficulties including culture shock, social isolation, stress, health anxiety, trauma, OCD, sexual dysfunction and low mood. I have also supported those with work-related issues, including social anxiety, bullying from colleagues/superiors, and motivational issues.
There are many benefits of online therapy. In our fast-paced and busy lives, working together online means that therapy can be flexible, not just in terms of when but where.
Online therapy is safe: I am bound to the same rules of managing privacy and confidentiality as any other therapy. I always work integrally and will review our progress throughout.
Training, qualifications & experience

I have extensive experience using CBT, ACT, EMDR and trauma-focused therapies.
I will always suggest an initial assessment appointment so that we can understand your goals for therapy, and that I can suggest a plan that will be best suited to your requirements.
