Por qué es un doctor de primer nivel/Professional statement/Perché è un dottore di prim’ordine

Dr Victor Thompson is a highly qualified psychologist with more than 20 years of experience in helping patients overcome common psychological problems such as anxiety, phobias, depression, stress and coping with trauma. He has worked as a sports psychologist for over 10 years. After 17 years as a clinical psychologist in the NHS, he is now working fully in private practice. He has two practices, one in central London and the other in East Dulwich. Appointments have switched to video consultations only due to Covid-19. 

In his sports psychology work, he assists athletes by working with them on overcoming performance stress, coping with injuries, and mentally adjusting to planned or unplanned retirement from sports. Dr Thompson doesn't only treat adults in the sporting world, he is also a sports psychologist for children regarding helping children to manage their anxiety and frustration, as well as developing their teamwork skills. 

Dr Thompson studied at the University of Sheffield in 1995 where he achieved his psychology bachelor's degree with honours. In 2001, he achieved a doctorate in clinical psychology at the University College London and in 2008 he achieved a post-graduate degree in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at the University of Oxford

He has a keen interest in sports, health, and general wellbeing, so much so that he has raced in six triathlon world championships and five European championships. These experiences have given him hands-on knowledge about the psychological stress of training and competing.

He's been a registered practitioner on the HCPC register since 2010 (PYL21378), and an accredited cognitive behavioural psychotherapist on the BABCP register since 2012 (091122)
