Cura only works with highly qualified and experienced clinical psychologists.
Independent practise is a challenging field and we therefore do not subcontract work to less qualified 'associates' or assistant psychologists who have yet to undertake their Clinical Doctoral training. At Cura all work is carried out by Dr Earley, Consultant Clinical Psychologist or her colleague Dr Andrew Brennan, both are HCPC registered clinical psychologists with extensive NHS experience.
As well as child psychology services Dr Earley also works with adults with psychological needs and accepts referrals from solicitors for psychological assessments and medico legal reports for assessment of adults, children and families.
Dr Earley has a private consulting room in an attractive garden setting in Lichfield, easily accessible from Tamworth, Burton upon Trent, Sutton Coldfield and surrounding areas. Home visits and school appointments can be discussed, however we would usually charge for the additional costs of travel time.
