Dr David McCormack, MSc DClinPsych


Dr David McCormack is a qualified and experienced Clinical Psychologist with a private practice at Malone Medical Chambers. He trained at Queen’s University Belfast, and after completing his clinical training he worked as a Clinical Psychologist at the Royal Hospitals in Belfast, dividing his time between the children’s, maternity and general adult hospitals. After this he went to work as a Clinical Psychologist at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and then the Maudsley Hospital in London.



Dr McCormack specialises in the treatment of psychological trauma, depression, and anxiety problems.

This includes people presenting with:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Low mood and depression
  • Recurrent panic attacks
  • Social anxiety problems
  • Adjustment difficulties

He also sees people with persistent physical symptoms and the focus of therapy is to enable people to better manage and cope with the physical symptoms they are experiencing and improve quality of life. 



To enable clients to overcome the problems they are attending for Dr McCormack uses evidence-based psychotherapy, drawing upon a number of psychological approaches. The main approach he uses is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). The reason for this is because CBT is proven to be an effective therapy for a number of common psychological and emotional problems. However, as people are inherently complex and their problems unique, he always tailors therapy to a client’s individual needs so as to best support them to overcome the difficulties they are experiencing.



Dr McCormack holds a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Queen’s University Belfast), a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology (Trinity College Dublin) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (Oxford University). 

He is fully insured and registered (licensed) to practice as a Clinical Psychologist in Northern Ireland and Great Britain. Registered Clinical Psychologist, PYL24053.
