Director of Education & Training and Dean of Postgraduate Studies
Brian Rock took up his role as Director of Education & Training and Dean of Postgraduate Studies in January 2015.
After qualifying as a clinical psychologist, before moving to London, Brian worked for the Goldstone Commission that was set up to examine political violence around the transition to democratic rule in 1994. This led to him being appointed as the founding director of an NGO, The Children’s Inquiry Trust. He has worked in the NHS since 1996 and was appointed as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist in 2004. Brian has worked in different roles in the organisation and has been involved in delivering training and supervision for a number of courses for the Trust and elsewhere. Since July 2009, Brian was involved in setting up and overseeing primary care services for the Trust, most notably with our award winning City & Hackney Psychotherapy Consultation Service. He has been involved in developing and delivering training and consultation to GPs and primary care staff.
Brian is a psychoanalyst and a member of the British Psychoanalytical Society. He also has an MBA from Henley Business School. Brian has published and presented widely on various topics related to mental health, Medically Unexplained Symptoms, and service development and service evaluation in primary care.
