THE TEAM

When you come to Cross Psychology it’s likely to be Dr Zoe Cross who is your first point of contact. Together with Zoe the team is growing to include other professionals, usually (but not always) fellow clinical psychologists. This means that the business is able to help more clients and offer a wider variety of specialist support. We can also extend our geographic area, allowing more face-to-face appointments. We will only choose associates who match the Cross Psychology culture – showing warmth, kindness and understanding – as well as having the qualifications and experience you’d expect. 

 

Here’s where we’ll introduce you to our people and where you can find out more.
