My name is Dr Sharon Pallant and I work as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist specialising in the area of adult mental health.
I worked for the NHS from 1990 until 2011, and I have been developing my private practice since 2000.
I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 1995 after 8 years of development and training and achieved NHS Consultant status in 2004.
Following qualifying in 1995, I was employed by Derbyshire Mental Health Services NHS Trust where I assessed and treated adults with a wide range of mental health difficulties and was also involved in a number of service developments in both Hospital and community settings.
Since the year 2000, I have been developing my private practice offering assessments and therapy for adolescents and adults in addition to completing various Court reports, assisting businesses and organisations etc.
On leaving the NHS in October 2011, my private practice has operated on a full-time basis, with Pallant Health Services opening in September 2014.
I am not part of a large organisation and hence pride myself on providing a personalised professional service at a competitive rate
