Dr Ruth Barrett-Naylor

Clinical Psychologist


I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist at the University of Nottingham and have extensive experience of working within child and adolescent services, adult services and forensic services. I have worked with children, young people and adults with a range of difficulties including anxiety and depression, complex and developmental trauma, physical health problems and attachment and relationship difficulties. I draw on a range of evidence based models and therapeutic approaches to help inform my work and work collaboratively with clients to ensure that the work is tailored to meet the clients needs. 

I currently hold two part-time positions within the NHS, one is working with children and adolescents and the other is within an adult community setting.
