About me

I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist for over eleven years (in NHS and independent practice) helping individuals to better understand their difficulties, find ways to lessen those difficulties, and improve overall psychological wellbeing.

I am experienced in working with a variety of difficulties, including:

  • Anxiety problems
  • Depression and low mood
  • Trauma-related difficulties (including PTSD)
  • Personality disorders
  • Anger & emotional regulation
  • Sleep problems
  • Complex or severe mental health difficulties

Additionally, I have considerable experience in working within forensic settings, and have expertise in the assessment of risk and mental health amongst offenders.

Based in Bedfordshire, I can provide detailed individualised assessments and evidence-based interventions for a range of mental health issues.The models I work with (such as CBT, EMDR, CFT) are collaborative, focussed, and time-limited.

I can also provide consultancy to other professionals, and clinical supervision.

Please see my website www.edwardspsychology.com for more information.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) awarded in 2005 by University College London. I also hold a BSc Psychology, and MSC Health Psychology.

The models I tend to draw upon in my work are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Behavioural therapy, Compassion-focussed Therapy. I am also in the process of training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization & reprocessing) and can offer this therapy to clients.
