My first aim as a consultant psychologist is to be welcoming and authentically kind. The role of the consultant is to help people, and kindness and compassion are central to that purpose. A gentle and humane approach serves to empower clients and engenders hope and optimism.
Second, I’m a strong champion of a broadly scientific approach. People seeking consultant services require safe and effective solutions to the challenges confronting them. Evaluating problems objectively and devising creative, yet testable, solutions offers the best prospect of achieving successful outcomes.
The intellectual and interpersonal challenge confronting the consultant psychologist is to integrate scientific rigour with compassion and understanding, and to tailor these appropriately to suit the client.
My clients come from a range of backgrounds, from young students to senior professionals, some of whom are leaders in their fields. They arrive with a diversity of concerns that detract from their enjoyment of life and / or a wish to attain and maintain optimum professional performance. They seek to enhance achievement and contentment both professionally and personally.
A significant proportion of clients have been recommended by former clients, which is of course personally gratifying. Prospective clients are completely welcome to contact me directly for an initial discussion of their requirements. I also accept referrals from General Practitioners, psychiatrists, other health professionals and company executives.
