Doug talking about how Mindfulness can help improve your mental health?
Mindfulness helps the brain become less reactive, giving you more control over your behaviours.
Doug is an intelligent and capable practitioner. Over the past 6 years he has gained invaluable experience within the area of addictions and dependency by working with a private addiction residential treatment centre and within the NHS at Guy's Hospital, London.
In addition to addictions, Doug has an interest in mood disorders and exploring ways to help people manage their emotional experience.
Having worked as a teacher for some time he left to take up counselling at Turning Point in London – a leading health and social care organisation working with a large number of clients for four years. Since 2007 he has worked at a private residential clinic as a counsellor and within the NHS at the Munro Clinic at Guy's hospital, London. In addition to his clinical work he has undertaken academic studies achieving a MA (Hons) in Integrative Psychotherapy. He has also trained with Alan Wallace and Paul Ekman to deliver a programme of mindfulness and psychological practices to assist in cultivating emotional balance.
Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.
I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.
I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.
Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.
Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.
We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.
SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).
I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.
You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.
Thank you for setting us (and me in particular) off down the road. I will always be grateful to you, and I do feel that you spent a lot of time on my case without much reward.
