Adrian is a chartered clinical psychologist and is registered with the British Psychology Society and the Health Development Agency. He completed his initial BSc. Hons. Psychology at Stirling University in 1982 and worked in research into addictive behaviours before entering clinical training. He qualified as a clinical psychologist through the joint Cambridge University and East Anglian Health Authority training scheme in 1991. Having worked in the NHS in Cambridge in a variety of roles including adult psychological services, drug, alcohol and smoking clinics as well as part-time with the Addenbrooke’s sexual health clinic, for many years, Adrian has experience of working with adults with a wide variety of psychological problems including anxiety, depression, trauma, obsessive-compulsive disorder etc. After initial assessment, which involves an exchange of information about the problem and the likely nature of therapy, Adrian often finds cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) the optimum first choice treatment. However other approaches are also considered. Adrian continues his professional development in line with BPS and HDA requirements and recently added Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to his treatment options. This is primarily used in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder but can be highly effective in healing aversive memories which block recovery in other areas of psychological distress. In his spare time Adrian still just about manages to keep up with his son at 5-a-side football and is way ahead of him at golf (honest). Adrian is registered with BUPA, AXA PPP.

Adrian is currently available at Beechwood on Mondays and Tuesdays. Home visits on other days (Cambridge only) is sometimes negotiable.
