Dr Jeremy Slaughter is a chartered clinical psychologist and occupational psychologist practising in the London area. Although Dr Slaughter works with a large array of different conditions, he specialises in integrative therapy, depression, work-life balance, clinic psychology, stress, and anxiety. Due to the current pandemic, he is accepting online consultations and appointments only.
Starting with a degree in another field, Dr Slaughter successfully received his qualification for psychology in 2000. His journey to discovering clinical psychology has proven that it is his passion and provided a real-life experience that he uses today to help his patients. Dr Slaughter experienced first-hand what it is like to try endless methods to help the self and try to find the right path for your journey. This became the inspiration to follow clinical psychology to help not only himself, but eventually others who have similar experiences - but now with a trained eye and mind.
Along this journey with clinical psychology, Dr Slaughter found that a lot of roles in psychology follow one of 12 factions and generally tend to behave as companions and trackers who only listen. He wanted to change this and really emphasise bringing it all together with integrated therapy, as well as being a participant in his patients' journeys. Dr Slaughter does this by taking the patient out of the "therapy circle" going round and round and creating a plan to have a direction that brings the patient where they want to as efficiently as possible.
Dr Slaughter developed a software to assist with this surveyor role called PsycNav™ (satnav for psychology). This programme evolved sessions beyond note-taking, where Dr Slaughter could now create a map of each patient's life, and in turn help the patients to better themselves. He has found that most problems and issues are actually from many levels of personal beliefs and habits, as opposed to a single treatment being the answer. Dr Slaughter works with a complete solution in this manner.
Dr Slaughter views his surveyor role as not only psychological therapy, but as a provider for insight into the structure of the difficulties his patients face. Ultimately, they can find solutions beyond therapy in other modalities to complement it. In this way, there will be more skill in recognising and formulating difficulties; and recognising faced difficulties and resolving them will be quicker now and in the future.
