About the Expert

Keiron was born in Birmingham and has never quite lost the Brummie twang. When he moved to Exeter to study psychology his fellow graduates delighted in getting him to request “chicken and mushroom pie and chips” for their entertainment. It was a simpler time and there was no internet.

It is a difficult road to get from undergraduate psychology to clinical psychology, and takes some time. However, the experiences gained were invaluable – from working in psychiatric wards, to third sector work with running a Mind day centre. These experiences were truly educational in understanding the lives of people with significant mental health difficulties, and how psychological help can make a difference.

Following qualifying as a clinical psychologist in 1991, Keiron developed an NHS career across several departments over the next 30 years, becoming Consultant and Head of adult psychology. His special interest area has long been trauma and anxiety disorders and he also lectured on these at local psychology courses. Medico-legal work began to be undertaken in the late 90s and he has continued to provide assessment and reporting services since then.

Keiron gained further qualifications as a Cognitive Behaviour therapist from Oxford and had some excellent experiences training with some of the American experts in the field. By good timing, this led to him being able to create and lead the Staffordshire IAPT CBT training course as the IAPT project developed. This course won plaudits for the quality of its training for new therapists and continues to this day, with Keiron now being Consultant Supervisor to the current course leaders. Helping other people develop their skills and careers has been a highlight of his working life. Many of his trainees now occupy senior positions in their services.
In recent years Keiron has focused more of his time on the medico-legal work and strives to provide an efficient, thorough but human service. It is often difficult for claimants to go through the process of assessment – and the necessarily detailed questioning can be hard – so it is always pleasing when people comment on it being made comfortable and respectful.
