Clinical Psychologist: Liz Boyd


I have worked in adult mental health in a psychological capacity for over 20 years across community, forensic and hospital (NHS/independent) settings. I commenced in independent practice in 2014 offering therapeutic and medico-legal services which I continue to do to this day.Dr Liz Boyd

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist (qualifying in 2010) and registered with and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have a MSc in Applied Forensic Psychology and I am qualified in Systemic Practice with the Association of Family Therapy as a Systemic Practitioner. I have undertaken further training and qualification with Internal Family Systems (IFS), EMDR and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). My main areas of specialism and interest are in Adult Mental Health, Adults with Learning Disabilities and Forensic Mental Health and Behaviour.

I specialise in the following:

• Mood and Emotional Difficulties (e.g., persistent pervasive low mood, mood dysregulation, anger).
• Anxiety, Panic, Obsessive compulsive behaviours and excessive fear.
• Self-Harming behaviours.
• Trauma Stress (e.g., Nightmares, Flashbacks, Persistent Sense of Dread).
• Sleep Disturbances.

Psychological theory, science and models can be used to achieve change for people. Central to the therapy work is developing a shared understanding with you of how any challenges and experiences in your life have led to certain difficulties or behaviours.

Realistic and achievable targets are agreed for the therapy based on your needs. A therapy plan is followed that fits with your short and longer term goals. The plan and therapy goals form a pivotal role for reviewing progress during therapy.

As a Clinical Psychologist and with the range of further therapeutic training and experience undertaken, I can draw on a number of different therapy approaches and techniques including NICE recommended Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); Rational-Emotive Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (REBT); Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) and Systemic Family Therapy.

I also draw upon Internal Family Systems Therapy as well as more neurobiologically informed approaches with consideration to Ego state/Parts work and Polyvagal theory. These different therapies are delivered according to professional and clinical guidelines and tailored to the needs of individuals and the presenting issues. Overarching the delivery and utilisation of these therapy approaches is the Power Threat Meaning Framework (PTMF). This is an alternative non-medicalised model of mental health and psychological difficulty. I am a member of the BPS PTMF Sub-committee.
