Why Choose Carl Taylor at PPS

Professional service by qualified, experienced and accredited clinician.

Clinical Expertise

I have 18 years of clinical experience, including 14 years within the NHS. I started my career as a clinician in 2002, initially working in university and charitable trusts psychotherapy services. In 2006 I went on to pursue my specialist interest in working with anxiety, depression and personality disorders within NHS secondary care services.

During my time within the NHS I have held a senior position in which I have pursued my specialist interest working with personality disorders predominately Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD), for which I have attained specialist post qualification training.

I was the lead clinician for both the Cognitive Analytic Therapy service and the Mentalization-Based Therapy service.  I am currently working towards accreditation in Transference Focused Psychotherapy (TFP).

I have clinical expertise and experience of delivering specialist, evidence-based treatments, and have actively developed my interest in working with people who have had long term problems understanding feelings, managing emotional responses and negotiating interpersonal relationships.

I am an accredited clinical supervisor with the British Psychological Society and Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy.  Over the course of my professional career I have supervised and managed both qualified and trainee clinical and counselling psychologists.
