Dr Mariajose Gutierrez Ros, Consultant Clinical Psychologist

I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in Spain in 1990 and also completed a Diploma in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and a Master’s degree. Later in 2010, I obtained the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and my research focused on bipolar disorder and I published a number of academic papers. I am very passionate about this topic and helping anyone struggling with mood dysregulation.

For over 25 years, I have worked in a range of diverse settings, both in the public and private sector, as well as in inpatient and community services. For over 10 years, I held a Consultant post and I had professional, strategic and operational responsibility for the Adult Community Psychology Service for South Essex.

I have an extensive theoretical knowledge of CBT models, ACT, Mindfulness based CBT, Systemic, Schema Focused Therapy and DBT. I have delivered highly specialist psychological assessments and effective evidence-based interventions to working age adults with a wide range of severe and complex presentations including PTSD, OCD, resistant and chronic depression, bipolar disorder, personality disorders and psychosis. I have worked with individuals, but also groups and have provided both clinical and management supervision for other psychologists.

My approach is collaborative; I can’t achieve anything without your involvement and dedication. One of my teachers once told me ‘I can’t do anything for you, but you can do a lot for yourself with my help’ and this is, in my view, summarizes therapy. Together we will build a formulation of your psychological difficulties, identify achievable goals and develop a tailored and individualized therapy program appropriate for your needs and personal circumstances. I remain invested in my own professional development, and I embrace a culture of continuous quality improvement.
