Dr. Dorothy Ojarikri – Clinical Psychologist

dr-dorothy-ojarikri-psychologistWelcome! Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.  I am Dr. Dorothy Ojarikri, Director of Affordable Psychology Services (APS).  I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with some fifteen years experience of working professionally in National Health Service (NHS) mental health services with children, families and adults experiencing a broad range of psychological problems.  In 2009 I left the NHS to work in the independent sector and have been working full time as a Chartered Clinical Psychologist in private practice with children, families, adults and a range of professional organizations.  APS is professionally based at private consulting rooms at 88 Rodney Street, Liverpool but works with clients of all ages residing throughout Merseyside, Warrington and other areas of North West England and further afield when required.
I established Affordable Psychology Services (APS) in order to provide people living across several areas of the United Kingdom (UK) with the opportunity to promptly access and receive the clinical psychology service that they themselves chose.  Whether this is a private psychological assessment and specialist psychological report writing service, attending psychological counselling or therapy appointments or using one of our specialized psychological consultation/therapy services to receive support with specific emotional issues.  For example, our divorce and separation service which supports both young people and adults coping with the emotional and social effects of personal relationship/family breakdown.

We are pleased to offer our clients of all ages a range of face to face psychological counselling and therapy services including cognitive behavior therapy, schema focused cognitive therapy, cognitive analytic therapy, attachment based therapies and a range of psychological counselling services able to meet the needs of individual, couples and families.  Affordable Psychology Services offers clients the opportunity to book prompt face to face psychological therapy, counselling or consultation appointments at dates and times of their choice whenever they have a pressing issue which they wish to discuss with an experienced Chartered Clinical Psychologist.

Here at APS the psychological needs of our clients are our foremost consideration.  I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist who is a full member of both the British Psychological Society (BPS) and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) which was set up by government and sets the highest standards for the health and care professionals it regulates in order to safeguard the welfare of the public.  I am registered with the HCPC as a Practitioner Clinical Psychologist.  The HCPC does not regulate counselors or most psychotherapists providing services to the public and my regulation with the HCPC is an indication of the very high standard of psychological services which APS provides to our clients.

I recognize that some of our clients may be concerned about the costs involved in funding private psychological therapy, counselling or specialized psychological consultation services to  address their personal or relationship difficulties and improve the quality of their lives.  To help with these concerns that I really do empathise with we offer  substantial discounts to clients who are able to pre-book psychological sessions in advance and/or are able to attend sessions during off-peak hours.  We are pleased to provide a highly specialized clinical psychology service at rates which are considerably below those of many other psychologists and psychotherapists in private practice.

Thank you for taking some of your valuable time to visit the APS and I trust that you enjoy learning more about our services.  I hope you will be inspired to contact us directly for a free no obligation psychological telephone consultation about your needs and that APS will be able to provide a psychological service to you in the future.

Best Wishes,

Dr. Dorothy Signature Black
