Dr Elaine McMullan

The level of professionalism from front desk to therapist was wonderful. I felt safe and secure and I was able to trust my surroundings and my therapy and therefore my therapist.


Dr Elaine McMullan is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist; a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS); a member of the Association of Clinical Psychologists (ACP-UK) and registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). She has worked in the NHS for over 15 years and has gained a broad range of experience in offering psychological interventions to adults with complex mental health difficulties in both NHS and private practice settings. Elaine has a particular interest in trauma/ adverse experiences, its different manifestations, and impact on ways of coping and surviving in the world. In more recent years, she has particularly focused on supporting people experiencing 'psychosis' and those who might attract a diagnosis of 'personality disorder'.


Elaine draws on a number of therapeutic approaches in her work including cognitive analytic therapy (CAT), mindfulness, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). She has completed additional training in compassion focused therapy (CFT), which she applies to her individual therapeutic work and to her work with staff teams. Elaine has recently completed post qualification training in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). 


Through working in the NHS for nearly two decades, Elaine has experience of working with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relational difficulties, traumatic life experiences, attachment difficulties, and cognitive problems.

In her current role she leads a forensic psychology service and is a member of the senior leadership team developing trauma informed care for adults accessing low secure mental health services.


Elaine has a keen interest in teaching and training and has taught on the BSC in ‘Personality Disorder’; ‘Forensic’ teaching for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology; and she has guest lectured in the ‘Mental Health’ teaching block for Associate Practitioners at the University of Leeds.
