London Psychologist Dr. Joel Sheridan is a highly experienced private Clinical Psychologist and runs a private practice in London, with consulting rooms in Harley Street and Chelsea.
As a Clinical Psychologist, he offers private counselling and psychological therapy, specialising in cognitive behavioural therapy and other evidence-based psychological treatments.
I have worked with people from a wide variety of backgrounds including lawyers, architects, doctors, media professionals and those in the public eye. I have also worked extensively with people presenting with a broad range of problems from panic attacks to complex PTSD.
I help people to make sense of their present difficulties, explore how these problems developed and identify what keeps them going. I provide clients with education about their difficulties, different perspectives on the problems they face and offer people a range of helpful techniques that help them overcome their problems.
I am passionate about effective psychological treatments that help people to get better as soon as possible. As a private psychologist I am usually able to offer patients a first appointment within a week.
"When I first visited Dr Sheridan, my anxiety issues had become so severe that every aspect of my life was being affected. Eight sessions later, I feel like I finally have control over my anxiety. His approach to tackling anxiety is very scientific and systematic. He helped me understand the physiology of my anxiety, and has given me techniques to stop it in its tracks"

What is a Clinical Psychologist?
Clinical Psychologists are the most highly qualified professionals in the mental health field besides psychiatrists. It takes a minimum of 7 years to qualify and is one of the mostly highly competitive professions to enter in the UK (e.g. last year the number of applications to places at UCL was approximately 16:1).
