Dr Yvonne McCulloch - Personal Details

I am a fully qualified and registered Clinical Psychologist obtaining my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2000.  Therefore I have over sixteen years of experience of working with people in psychological distress, and helping them improve their everyday well-being.

I completed an undergraduate BSc in Psychology at Birkbeck College in London.  I undertook my training in Clinical Psychology at University College London.  This is a three year training course consisting of clinical work (based within the NHS), academic and research components. 

My qualifications include:
BSc Psychology (Hons)
Doctorate in Clinical Psychology
Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Clinical Neuropsychology

Since qualification, I have worked in the areas of adult and older adult mental health, community rehabilitation, neuropsychology and clinical health, and private health. 

My most recent post in the NHS was at Imperial College Healthcare Trust in Central London where I worked for seven years as a clinical psychologist (specialising in clinical health problems) and clinical neuropsychologist. I have been providing private clinical and medico-legal services since 2010, and since 2013 I carry out only private work.

I am a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychologist Society (BPS) which oversees professional standards, and I adhere to its Code of Ethics and Conduct, and Professional Practice Guidelines.  You can see my registered details here.  I am also an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS).

 

 

 

I also belong to the BPS's Divisions of Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology, and the Faculty of Clinical Health Psychology.

I am registered as a Clinical Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) which is the official body that ensures that clinical psychologists meet the HCPC's standards of training, skills and practice.  I abide by its Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics, and its Standards of Proficiency for Practitioner Psychologists.  You can see my registered details can be found at the HCPC website here.

I am a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).  Their website can be accessed here.

My range of experience has meant that I have come across many different psychological difficulties and I have used a range of different treatment options.  From this and my own personal experience, I believe that psychology is a powerful force in helping people improve their situation.  People are becoming more aware of the importance of psychological therapy and it is now more common for people to use therapy to make positive changes in their lives; to not accept that what has gone before will be the pattern of the future.
