Dr Markku Wood

I am a highly experienced Consultant clinical psychologist, passionate about working with people who are having a difficult time. I have extensive training and experience of working across a variety of mental health difficulties, developmental disorders and age ranges with individuals, couples, and families.

Currently I work as a Consultant clinical psychologist in the NHS and as Clinical Lead for Children and Young people’s mental health at Northumbria University, where I hold national and regional consultative roles.

Over the last 20 years I have developed a passion for working with children and adults with a variety of mental health difficulties from depression to anxiety, behavioural and emotional difficulties, to psychosis. I also have a special interest in working with developmental disorders such as autism spectrum conditions and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.  I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) with the BABCP, Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the HCPC, and Associate Fellow and Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.

In therapy I use a variety of methods including CBT and systemic theories. I am also a therapist and trainer in Behavioural Family Therapy and have experience of delivering Programmes and supervision of Applied behaviour Analysis and Positive behaviour Support.

Throughout my career I have spread my time across clinical and academic specialities and believe that this allows me to stay up to date with best practice across conditions. My experience in academia also gives me a wealth of experience in managing the challenges and stresses of academic study.

I have extensive experience of supervising other clinicians and am also happy to take enquiries for accredited CBT supervision of supervision.

I look forward to taking informal and formal enquiries from individuals and families and look at ways that we can work together in a warm and compassionate way to improve your quality of life.

Tai Mitchell

Hello, I am Tai, I am a mental health nurse by background but I am also a trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist accredited through the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), as well as an independent non-medical prescriber. I also work as an Associate Lecturer on the low level Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Programmes at Northumbria University.

I have experience working with adults, as well as children and young people (CYP). I currently work in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) within the National Health Service (NHS). I have experience using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to work on mental health difficulties, such as:

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • Phobias
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem

I also have experience working with CYP who have comorbid neurodevelopmental difficulties such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In sessions, I significantly focus on recovery, helping people to ‘become their own therapist’, and overcome their difficulties independently following sessions coming to an end.

I am aware of the issues that COVID 19 has had on the majority of people, I am therefore open to new ways of working, such as video or telephone appointments where appropriate and possible.

I am currently undertaking further study at university, so there may be days that I cannot offer appointments. However, if you were to get in touch I am very happy to be flexible with appointment dates and times. Thank you for taking time to read my bio and I very much look forward to working with you in the future.
