The Inform Team

Practicing psychologists have the professional training and clinical skills to help people learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health problems. Some people may talk to a psychologist because they have felt depressed, angry, or anxious for a long time. Or, they want help for a chronic condition that is interfering with their lives, or physical health. Others may have short-term problems they want help navigating, such as feeling overwhelmed by a new job, or grieving following the death of a family member. Psychologists can help people learn to cope with stressful situations, overcome addictions, and even manage chronic illnesses.  Our team of clinical and educational psychologists are professionally insured and registered members of the professional body, the Psychological Society of Ireland (P.S.I.).

Our clinical psychology services are recognised by all major health insurance companies. Check your policy for cover details.

Dr Marie English, Clinical Psychologist DClinPsyc, MSc, BSc(Hons), HCPC registered

Marie qualified as a clinical psychologist in 2007, having completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of Teesside, Middlesbrough, England (2004 to 2007).

On qualifying, Marie worked into two specialist teams as a clinical psychologist within the National Health Service (NHS; November 2007 to August 2008) in the UK.   These services were multi-disciplinary; a day and inpatient unit for complex mental health problems (Tier 4 Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)), and a Regional pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) service.  Marie returned to Ireland in September 2008 and began working as a clinical psychologist in the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE; November 2008 – current) child and family services.

Over the last almost ten years, Marie has developed extensive qualified experience in clinical assessment, formulation and intervention.  When working therapeutically, Marie works with children and their parents together (dyadic therapy), individually with children and young people, and with parents only.  The composition and focus of recommended therapy is informed by a detailed clinical psychology assessment and formulation process.

Marie is dedicated to providing a quality service to the clients with whom she works.  Part of achieving this involves engaging with continuous professional development and Marie is currently completing a Post Graduate Diploma (PGDip) in Paediatric Clinical Neuropsychology at the Institute of Child Health, University College London (2015 – 2017).   Accessing her own professional supervision is also a key component of Marie’s practice.
