Ben Buchanan

I am a clinical psychologist with expertise in adult psychology. My clinical practice includes the treatment of depression, anxiety disorders, panic, substance use problems, and difficulties with decision making and impulsivity. In particular, I’m interested in the intersection between substance use and mental health concerns, and I provide integrated psychological treatment for these complex issues. I have an interest in mindfulness-based practices and often incorporate these approaches with cognitive-behavioural treatment methods.

I have undertaken psychological work in a variety of settings, including addiction treatment centres, hospitals, and community clinics. I’m a published author in the field of cognitive neuroscience, and my research examines the role of personality, cognition and emotion in prompting risky decision making, impulsivity, and substance use. I value compassion, gentleness, and patience in treatment processes, and my style of intervention fundamentally reflects these principles.
