Bsc (Hons) Psychology (2000) – University of Manchester

I am a Clinical Psychologist and have worked in the NHS for 20 years, the last 14 of these as a qualified Clinical Psychologist.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I offer an integrative approach to psychological therapy that is tailored towards each client’s needs. Each client is an individual and brings a unique experience of the world and their relationships within it. It requires a knowledge and understanding of a variety of theoretical and therapeutic perspectives in order to deliver the most helpful approach to recovery for each client. Therapies utilised may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassion Focussed Therapy and Cognitive Analytic Therapy, depending on the prevalent issues.
I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist within an NHS Community Mental Health Team and also in a Psychological Therapies Service (IAPT/Healthy Minds) for several years. More recently I have worked in an NHS Learning Disability Community Team providing psychological consultation, teaching and training to service providers and adapted psychological therapy work with clients who have mild learning disabilities.
From June 2020 I plan to work solely in private practice, offering a range of psychological therapy from my clinic based within Nicki Haves Physiotherapy in Urmston, Manchester
99 Flixton Rd,Urmston, Manchester M41 5BF
Clinic days are Tuesday and Thursdays
(please note this clinic is not accessible for wheelchair users, however, an alternative venue can be offered subject to availability)
I provide an informal and compassionate style of working within a range of therapeutic perspectives.
I have many years experience of working with people who have mild and more significant mental health issues,
including anxiety, depression, trauma related issues, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, etc.
I am a registered Clinical Psychologist with the HCPC and a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.
My route into Clinical Psychology
In 2000 I achieved a degree in Psychology from the University of Manchester and 3 years later I went on to study for a further 3 years to complete a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Liverpool.
Prior to starting my Doctorate, I worked as an Assistant Psychologist in a team providing care for people with early onset psychosis. Following this, I worked as an Assistant Psychologist within a medium secure mental health facility for women. My final post before studying for my Doctorate was as a Research Assistant looking at mental health provision available for women staying in prison and probation hostels in the North West of England.
My Doctoral research studied the mental health impact on women and their children who had experienced domestic violence inflicted by a partner.
