Dr Helen Beesley
Chartered Clinical Psychologist
BSC, DClin Psychol, AFBPsS
I have enjoyed working in both clinical and clinical research posts since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist at the University of Liverpool in 2004. I led the development of a new clinical psychology service in Breast services at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. During my 11 years at the hospital, I also took a role as Macmillan Principal Clinical Psychologist & Research Lead in a broader psychology service for people affected by various cancer types. My clinical work involved supporting patients affected by illness and their family members using psychological therapy.
I provide assessment and psychological therapy. I am also sometimes asked to see patients for assessment before surgery and can provide support to patients making decisions about treatment. My area of specialism is clinical health psychology; supporting people when psychological difficulties are linked to dealing with physical illness. I also provide more general psychological intervention for depression, anxiety, low self esteem and other issues.
Over the last 15 years I have carried out and published research in clinical health psychology. I continue to publish research with colleagues in the Liverpool Psychology in Cancer Care Research Group. Presently, I work in private practice in Liverpool city centre and Spire Murrayfield and am Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Liverpool.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Helen Beesley at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Murrayfield Hospital Wirral.
