Hello, my name is Andrew Perry. I am a psychologist.
I have helped people feel healthier for the past twenty-one years.
I began my career as a patient, making my work personal and professional. Recovering to take my first paid post as a mental health advocate in Bradford (1999-2002.) Becoming an assistant psychologist, in Gateshead (2003-2004) and then a trainee clinical psychologist, in Leicester (2004-2007.) Subsequently, working as a qualified clinical psychologist, with St Andrews Healthcare, in Northampton (2007-2009), with Greater Glasgow NHS Trust, in Bridgton (2009-2010), with the State Hospital NHS Trust, in Carstairs (2010-2017), and finally with Cyrenians, in Bathgate (2017-2019). I have developed a private practise as part of my work since 2017.
I am also a published author on work related traumatic stress and growth, advocacy, therapeutic environments and mutually helpful relationships. I have presented papers at national and international conferences. You can find my published work on both my website blog and my LinkedIn profile .
All across my career I have developed a preferred practise of helpful relationships. These 'co-productive relationships' are, in my experience, the most effective way to feel healthier.
