Dr Stephen Hoole
Clinical psychologist
Stephen Hoole

Dr Hoole is the clinical lead at Priory Wellbeing Centre Manchester and an experienced clinical psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), as well as being a chartered member and associate fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS). He has extensive experience in both the public and charity sectors, having been a senior clinical psychologist in the NHS (severe and enduring mental health), and the co-ordinator of clinical services for a Manchester-based charity, before making the move to the private sector to become the clinical lead at Priory Wellbeing Centre Manchester. He offers clinical leadership and support to the therapy team, and forms part of the centre’s management structure.

Dr Hoole is a graduate of the Doctor of Clinical Psychology programme at the University of Leeds and specialises in psychodynamic approaches to therapy in order to get to the root of people's issues and begin the healing process. Dr Hoole has a particular interest in group work, having completed a Diploma in Groupwork Practice, and in the influence of early life and relationships upon one’s current mental health and wellbeing, particularly in regards to enduring depression.

However, doctoral level training includes a variety of therapeutic approaches, which means Dr Hoole is not limited by a specific type of therapy; he draws on psychodynamic approaches, but also attachment theory, narrative therapy, mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) skills. Through assessment and formulation, he works collaboratively with a client to find the best therapy approach for them.
