Dr. Emma Santhouse. An Introduction


I am a chartered clinical psychologist and currently work with adults with mental health problems in both the NHS and private practice. My role involves assessment and treatment for a range of mental health problems in adults, expert witness reports for legal proceedings, and supervision and training of other therapists and trainee clinical psychologists from Manchester and Lancaster University Doctoral programmes.

Qualifications and Clinical Experience

I qualified in 2000 from Manchester Metropolitan University with a 1st Class Honours degree in Psychology and Speech Pathology, and was also awarded the faculty prize for the highest overall examination scores in the year group.

After qualifying, I decided to pursue a clinical psychology career path as this more closely reflected my broader interests in human functioning. Following graduation and prior to Clinical Psychology training, I worked for a number of years in assistant psychologist and research assistant posts. These posts included neuropsychology, forensic psychology and health psychology research.

I then attended a three year professional doctoral training course in clinical psychology at the University of Manchester and graduated in 2005. This provided me with a comprehensive and multi theoretical training across all core areas of clinical psychology practice, as well as a strong grounding in academic research.

Since qualifying, I have worked for eight years as a chartered clinical psychologist in an NHS Mental Health Trust in adult services as outlined above, and have continued extensive, post qualification specialisation training throughout. My specific clinical and research interests include attachment, trauma and personality problems as well as contemplative neuroscience (mindfulness and compassion based) approaches and the effectiveness of group versus individual therapy.
