Michael Gurr is a Clinical Psychologist who specialises in providing psychological therapies to help people overcome emotional difficulties and to reach their goals.
Michael has experience working in both public mental health and in private practice and has completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Michael has undergone training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (Cognitive Therapy, Behaviour Therapy, Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) as well as Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy and Mindfulness.
Michael is very passionate about and focused on taking the approach that is going to be effective in helping each person reach their goals. This means working together in a safe and supportive environment to figure out what your goals are, how to achieve them and then being supported to do the work needed. In some instances this means that a very structured approach will be adopted while at other times a more varied way of working together may be appropriate.
Michael has worked with people with a wide range of emotional difficulties. This includes working with to low mood, elevated mood, anxiety, or difficulties regulating mood. Working on relieving the emotional distress and living a fulfilling valued life often means working with common triggers that can lead to emotional difficulties such as stress, difficult interpersonal relationships, trauma, loss, pain, experiencing voices or other unusual perceptual experiences, and difficult early life experiences. It also means working on the ways that we cope with these difficulties that can sometimes be unhelpful, such as substance use, avoidance, anger, working too hard, and self-attack.
