Dr Tom Steverson Chartered Clinical Psychologist (BSc, MSc, ClinPsyD, CPsychol)
My name is Tom and I am a Clinical Psychologist. I have over 17 years of experience working in mental health services and over seven years experience working as a qualified Clinical Psychologist in the NHS.
Alongside my NHS work, I also work for Norwich Clinical Psychology Practice. We are a small team of Clinical Psychologists based at a conveniently located office on Magdalen Street, a short walk from Norwich city centre.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I am trained in a range of psychotherapeutic approaches. However, I practice most frequently using an approach called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Whilst some people may have a clear idea of the type of therapy they wish to undertake, others may be unsure. Accordingly, as a Clinical Psychologist, my role is to work collaboratively with people to develop an assessment, shared understanding and formulation of their difficulties. Based on this, my role is to then advise on, tailor and provide psychotherapeutic interventions that suit a client's needs and preferences.
Aside from theoretical knowledge however, successful therapy is also a result of the quality of working relationship between the therapist and client. I therefore aim to provide a client-centered, non-judgmental approach, offering a safe and supportive space within which clients can work on achieving meaningful change.
I have worked in a range of healthcare settings including hospitals, community services and care homes. I have experience of working with a range of client groups including adults, children, families, older adults, those with neurological difficulties, severe and enduring mental health difficulties, learning disabilities and chronic pain. I have also worked closely with care teams and organisations providing, psychological support and training to enhance practice and functioning.
I also have extensive clinical and research experience from woking with people with neurological difficulties, including head injury and stroke. I continue to work in this area within my NHS work. This work includes supporting the psychological adjustment to acquired health difficulties.
If you would like to make contact please feel free to e-mail me. I aim to respond to all e-mails within 48 hours (or the following Monday if contact is made over the weekend). After contact I will arrange a time to call you to find out more information and answer any questions you may have.
What to expect
The purpose of the initial session will be to try and make sense of the difficulties you are currently facing. Should you be willing to start a course of therapy, this session will also be an opportunity to clarify the areas you want to work on and how you want to arrange the therapy (e.g., number of sessions, frequency of appointments etc).
As stated above our office (Sackville Place) is based on Magdalen street, a short walk from Norwich City Centre. Sackville Place is based directly opposite Magdalen Street car park and a short five minute walk from Colgate car park. The offices are also a ten minute walk from St Andrews Car Park. Regular buses also run through Magdalen Street. A very pleasant coffee shop (La Petite) is located directly next door to the Sackvillie Place.
