About Rainbow Psychology

I am Dr Sam Carruthers. My career in Psychology has spanned over 22 years after obtaining my undergraduate Psychology degree at the University of York and my Masters degree and PhD in Health Psychology at the University of Leeds. I have worked in the NHS for over 14 years in both child and adult services. I am registered to practice with the HCPC (registration number PYL34479) and am a member of the UK Association of Clinical Psychologists (ACP-UK).  I also undertake regular training to continue my professional development. 

I am trained in and have experience of using a range of therapeutic skills such as Compassion-Focussed Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (including brief focussed ACT techniques) and Mindfulness with adults and children. I also get creative when working with younger children and am known for getting a bit messy! My general approach is to acknowledge that one size most definitely does not fit all. The best approach for one person may not be the best fit for you and so I very much favour an integrated model of care and we will work collaboratively to determine the best approach for your specific needs.
I offer face-to-face sessions in my comfortable, peaceful clinic room in the beautifully restored Croft Myl offices just outside the centre of Halifax.  There is a reception/waiting area and lots of comfy places for families to relax in during child sessions and free WiFi. There are also lots of space available for your training needs. There's lots of available free on-street parking as well as a large pay and display carpark within a minute's walk. There's even a beautiful art-deco coffee lounge!
