Nicola Tweedie

Joined 6 years ago from East Sussex, United Kingdom




By profession I am a clinical psychologist and work in the field of mental health. I specialise in working with complex stress, personality disorders, additctions, self-harm, and suicide. I have a special interest in women's issues and sexuality. I have worked in both private and state organisations and have experience working with children and adults.

I am also an independent business woman and share some of my private work with my partner, so I have my own experience of having to self-motivate and self-regulate in an ever-increasing world of competition. I enjoy reading and writing and both edit and review books in my field regularly. I am also involved in training other psychologists and mental health professionals and see this as a vital part of my work.

Outside work I am a Mummy, partner, sister, daughter and friend. I am interested in music and sport and make the most of my down-time. Being a mother is an important aspect of my life and something that has brought with it many changes and realisations - there are so many things I just didn't get before I was a parent...especially about my own parents and their choices.

I take an interest in world affairs and have lived in Africa, Australia, Arabia and currently the UK. I have roots in Africa and am acutely aware of the importance of difference and how it can be a hinderance and a help.
