Graham Wooding – Psychologist and Psychotherapist

I am a UKCPregistered psychotherapist and HCPC2 registered clinical psychologist, based on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon, UK. I worked for the NHS for nearly 30 years, initially in the field of psychiatric rehabilitation with a special focus on psychological therapy for psychosis. I previously ran a large psychiatric after-care hostel. After moving to Devon in 1996 I worked in Adult Mental Health, mostly within a community mental health team, becoming the Lead Psychologist for Mid-Devon.

I offer a wide range of psychological therapies.

I have trained extensively in individual and group psychological therapies applicable to a wide range of presentations across different settings. I am particularly experienced in working with people whose difficulties are the result of severe and complex trauma, utilizing a range of interventions, including action methods, creative media, Compassion Focused Therapy and EMDR3.

I have taught on a number of clinical psychology, psychotherapy, counselling, and drama therapy courses and have provided supervision to a broad range of professionals within the NHS and the private sector.

I endeavour to establish safe, supportive relationships in which trust is established to enable resolution, well-being, problem-solving, healing and growth, according to the needs and circumstances of each individual.

  • Psychology – the scientific study of the mind, emotion, and behaviour.
  • Psychotherapy – a method by which an appropriately trained individual attempts by various means to help a client to address whatever is causing emotional disturbance or relationship difficulties. There is no hard and fast line between psychotherapy and counselling but counselling is often less focused upon dynamic, historical factors and more concerned with current relationships, including the relationships we have with ourselves.
