Dr Peter Walker is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with a background in a variety of clinical contexts. Prior to starting his training as a Clinical Psychologist, Dr Walker worked in a number of services for People with Learning Disabilities. Both during this time and during training, Dr Walker completed empirical research investigating the links between sexual identity development, mental health, attachment and risk taking behaviour.

Dr Walker started his post qualification experience working in services for Older Adults, which involved him completing numerous neuropsychological assessments for people with suspected dementia and therapeutic assessments and interventions for older people with mental health difficulties. During this post, Dr Walker completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology and undertook a number of staff supervision and training initiatives.

Dr Walker then moved into the specialist field of Adult Forensic Mental Health where he was the Psychology Lead for a multi-disciplinary team and completed a range of psychological risk assessments and therapeutic interventions with offenders with mental health and personality difficulties. During this position, Dr Walker commenced his career in producing reports for the Courts.

In 2010, Dr Walker achieved Consultant Clinical Psychologist status working with young offenders and he also gained extensive experience of working with non-offending children, adolescents and their families at that time. Dr Walker has developed an Independent Practice since 2005 and has to date completed over 300 reports for the Courts.

Dr Walker currently provides therapeutic interventions for adults and children with a range of mental health difficulties, including Depression, Anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Dr Walker became an Associate Member of the British Psychological Society in 2012 and he is registered with the Health Professions Council as a Practitioner Psychologist. Dr Walker is fully trained in Expert Witness Skills through the Cardiff University Bond Solon Scheme.
