In addition to his clinical work, Dr Harwood is a Clinical Research Psychologist at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, a department of King's College London.

Dr Harwood is trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT) and Systemic Therapies, although he is able to integrate learning from a wide range of therapeutic techniques into his clinical work. He believes in forming truly collaborative relationships with clients, taking into account all of their needs, which enables them to make the changes that they desire. He is comfortable in exploring and using psychological principles to develop an understanding of a client's past, and how that impacts on their current behaviour, decisions, and relationships. However, he is also able to conduct an in-depth assessment of his client's current mental health needs and use this information to enable his clients to achieve long term improvements in their mental wellbeing.

ADHD and ADD
Attention describes the process of perceiving internal or external stimuli and data. We require a narrow or broad focus of attention depending on the type of task we are carrying out. For example when thinking strategically or being creative, focusing on the wider picture means we gather a larger amount of data with which to shape our thoughts and intuitions. In this mode we connect different ideas and concepts, identify patterns and generally experience a flow of thoughts, feelings and ideas.
