Dr. Steve Mayers
DClinPsy, MSc, BSc
Over the past 20 years, Steve has developed 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 the individual’s experiences. Some of the ideas that Steve draws on are from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, psychodynamic 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. He has experience working in a number of contexts with a variety of service user groups and professional teams in mental health, physical health and social care settings in the UK and Australia.
In addition to this, he has completed ongoing research, published a book and established independent practice. 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 facilitates 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 the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in the UK and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) in Australia.
