Pauline Hurr MSc began her career in providing psychological interventions at the Glasgow Priory Hospital in 2011 and has been Clinical Associate in Applied Psychology for the National Health Service since 2012. Also a private practitioner, Pauline is a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP). In addition to achieving a First Class Honours Degree with Distinction in Psychology (BSc) and a Masters Degree (MSc) in Psychological Therapy in Primary Care, Pauline has always sought to enhance her applied practice through the most relevant and useful courses and qualifications; including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Trauma Focused Therapy (CBTFT), Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), essential learning around trauma responsive practice and Mindfulness. Indeed, Pauline is a qualified Mindfulness practitioner as well as Mindfulness teacher, and is also a qualified Clinical Supervisor, offering Clinical Supervision on both a group and individual basis. Pauline’s training and experience has provided her with a deeper understanding of the truly human intricacies of working with both youths and adults with different psychological needs, whether in one-to-one or group settings. Moreover, she prefers to take a holistic approach in providing a non-judgmental, empathic role in helping people understand and work through their difficulties and realise their true potential. Why? Because, “It helps to be caring and humane when you’re helping humans to care more about themselves.” Pauline enjoys creating connections and reading, and her favourite word is verstehen (empathic understanding of human behaviour).
