Nick Oliver

Interim Director of Psychological Services, CPFT


I am a consultant clinical psychologist with an extensive clinical background in mental health services for older people. In 2015 I have been working as an senior operational manager in the adult directorate with oversight of the Psychological Wellbeing Service (IAPT), the Advice & Referral Centre (ARC) and the Peterborough & Borders Adult Locality Team. I am also the interim Director of Psychological Services with professional lead responsibilities for all psychologists in the Trust.


I trained at the University of East London and have also completed an MA in Solution Focused Brief Therapy at the University of Birmingham.


The Psychological Wellbeing Service is CPFT's improving access to psychological therapies service (IAPT).


I will discuss the space between primary and secondary care in which the Psychological Wellbeing Service operates and how the PWS  supports people to work proactively towards their own recovery.
