Dr Laura Walton
C. Psychol. AfBPsS.
As a professional Clinical Psychologist I offer a high quality of service and am regulated by the UK Health Care Professionals Council. You can check my registration on their website. I am also a Charted Psychologist with the British Psychological Society, which you may also check. I hold professional insurance and follow laws relating to healthcare provision in the UK.
Becoming a Clinical Psychologist involves extensive study of human psychology at university, followed by doctorate training in applying this understanding and providing therapeutic approaches to people.
My core qualifications:
- Bachelor of Science in Psychology, University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne
- Master of Science in Psychological Research Methods, University of Stirling
- Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, University of Edinburgh
I have ten years experience of working within the National Health Service. I have specialist experience of working with people with extreme dysregulation of emotion and psychosis. I am trained and experienced in a range of psychological approaches for depression, anxiety, panic and trauma reactions.
After all of this training and experience, in various approaches to supporting people, I have found that one approach stands out. The reason I know this is because I follow the approach myself. I would not expect you to do something I would not try myself!
I find that offering training and therapy online brings a range of benefits to you. Clearly it is more convenient to access appointments from where you are, you can talk to me from the comfort and privacy of your own home, or even continue to meet while travelling. You are in control and able to use the appointments as needed, applying them to your life immediately after we speak.
I offer to be present with you and the difficulties you may face. During your appointment, you will have my full attention.
