Dr Helen Beesley

Clinical Psychologist  

BSc (Hons), DClin Psychol, AFBPsS, Chartered Psychologist

Director, Clinical Psychology Services North West Ltd

I am a Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

I have enjoyed working in both clinical and clinical research posts (NHS and University) since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist at the University of Liverpool in 2004.   I have worked solely in private practice since September 2015 and I created Clinical Psychology Services North West in 2018.

I provide psychological therapy, specialist psychological assessments (including medico-legal assessments) and training.  I am joined by two Associate Clinical Psychologists who provide medico-legal psychological assessments and related work.

We are experienced Clinical Psychologists and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). We are all Chartered Psychologists and Associate Fellows of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

The services provided fall into three main areas:

Psychological Therapy

I provide Psychological Therapy for adults with emotional difficulties such as depression, anxiety, work stress, bereavement issues, low self-esteem, and those whose problems relate to a history of difficult experiences in childhood.  An area of specialism is Clinical Health Psychology, helping people whose psychological difficulties relate to dealing with physical illness or injury.

I hold psychological therapy clinics at Spire Murrayfield Hospital on the Wirral and in central Liverpool. I also accept referrals from Clatterbridge Private Clinic on the Wirral.  People are sometimes referred to me by their GP or by another clinician involved in their care.  I also accept self referrals.

I am registered with several health insurance companies including AXA-PPP, Aviva, BUPA, Cigna, WPA and Vitality Health.  If you are with an insurer not mentioned here, please contact us as it is usually possible for me to be recognised by another insurer without any undue delay.

Contact us if you would like to discuss psychological therapy or to book an appointment.

Medico-legal Psychological assessments

I, along with two Associates, provide specialist psychological assessments for the Court relating to personal injury and clinical negligence cases.

We appreciate the needs of the solicitors and agencies who instruct us,  the people who attend for assessment and our duty to the Court.  We provide an efficient and professional service;  appointments are within four to six weeks of instruction and reports are completed within ten working days following the assessment.

Contact us if you would like further information, or would like to instruct us.

Training

I provide training on topics within clinical health psychology, such as emotional reactions to cancer, and breaking bad news.

Clinical Psychology Services North West routinely collects feedback from those who access our services to ensure we provide the best for those we work with.  Jake, our Assistant Psychologist, works on service evaluation and regularly collates feedback and outcomes data to ensure the services we provide are effective.

PLEASE NOTE: Clinical Psychology Services North West offer planned appointments only.  We do not provide crisis or emergency services. If you feel suicidal or in crisis, contact your GP or Accident and Emergency department. The Samaritans and NHS 111 can also help you to access support in a crisis.
