Dr John O’Connor

Consultant Clinical Psychologist

I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years post-qualification experience who is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.  I identify and treat psychological problems across the entire spectrum with particular expertise in depression, anxiety, trauma,  addictions and work/relationship issues.

I use a range of evidence-based therapeutic techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and am passionate about identifying and using clients’ personal virtues in tackling psychological distress.


“Dr O’Connor has excellent communication skills and his personal qualities are such that I have no doubt in his ability to form positive relationships and effective working alliances with people from a wide variety of disciplines and from all walks of life”.
