Dr David Barry CPsychol, BA (Hons), MA, HDip, MSc, DClinPsy
Clinical Associate, CPG

David is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Having undertaken his doctorate at the University of Hertfordshire he has always been interested in psychological wellbeing, as well as understanding the theoretical underpinnings of how our mind and society serve to construct our reality.

David has experience of working with children, adolescents, adults and families within a variety of NHS and non-NHS settings. He has worked with people experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties while utilising a range of therapeutic models, tailoring his approach to the needs of the client. His main approaches stem from the cognitive school of thought and include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. He has also undergone specialist training in Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy, a brief psychodynamic approach which explores specifically how our relationships may lead to psychological distress. While he has a passion for learning new ways of understanding and helping human suffering, he also enjoys finding the common ground of how we all make sense of our worlds.

Currently he holds a post working with adults in a Community Recovery Team based in East London Foundation Trust. As well as providing psychological assessment and therapy to individuals, David runs groups, carries out psychometric tests and provides consultation and supervision to colleagues. He also provides assessment and diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Conditions and consultation to services working with people on the Autism Spectrum. As a scientist practitioner, David has also carried out various pieces of research throughout his career.

David has always harboured an interest in the larger questions of life, which led him to complete a Masters degree in philosophy. Indeed he sees our mental health as closely related to wider issues of meaning, purpose and the universal struggles of the human condition. He is a firm believer of the potential in everyone and believes that mental health difficulties can be a useful starting point for longer term growth. David is a warm, enthusiastic and skilled Practitioner Psychologist.
