Steve is the co-founder of Freedom Clinical Psychology. Over the past 15 years, he has adopted an approach which enables him to be creative, reflective and flexible in his work. He believes that people don’t fit into boxes and in order to support someone in a way that is useful, it is important to integrate different ideas and ways of understanding a person’s experiences. Some of the ideas that Steve draws on are from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy and mindfulness-based approaches. He is also able to incorporate ideas from inter-personal dynamic psychotherapy and systemic family therapy.

Steve completed his undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Liverpool; his master’s in Psychological Research Methods at Birkbeck College, University of London; and his Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Leeds. Steve is committed to ongoing research and is currently writing his doctoral thesis which explores the process of collaboration between practitioners working in social care in the UK. He has previously undertaken specialist projects which focused upon the psychological needs of people who are homeless and the input of clinical psychologists in a major trauma centre. In addition to this, Steve authored a book, commissioned by Routledge, titled ‘Becoming a Clinical Psychologist: Everything you need to know’.

Steve feels fortunate to work as a clinical psychologist and continues to value the opportunity to learn from the people he has been able to support. He enjoys forums when members of local communities can come together to discuss various topics from a psychological perspective. Steve is registered as a Clinical Psychologist with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in the UK.
