About the Expert

Ashley is currently training in an advanced form of psychotherapy called Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) and travels to Boston, USA 4 times a year to be trained with an internationally renowned trainer in this approach, Dr Patricia Coughlin, Clinical Psychologist. ISTDP is a therapy which has a strong evidence base for anxiety, depression and trauma, as well as for physical conditions worsened by emotional stress, such as chronic pain, IBS, headaches and fibromyalgia. It is also a very focused approach that aims to deal with the underlying emotional problems that drive people’s symptoms of anxiety and depression, rather than just aiming to eliminate the symptoms.

Ashley is a professional singer and guitarist, and alongside his clinical psychology work he has a wedding business.

Ashley is also a very keen runner and is currently training for a marathon.
