About Neil

Experience

I have worked within several NHS trusts providing psychological therapy for adults experiencing a wide variety of psychological problems.

I have a specific interest in working with the psychological impact of trauma; this could be a ‘one off’ overwhelming event or a series of events stretching back to early childhood which can continue to cause difficulties in the present and often manifest in depression, anxiety or panic.
