Thank your your interest in Limited.  My name is Craig White and I am a Consultant Clinical and Health Psychologist providing sessional consultancy. 

I qualified as a clinical psychologist 25 years ago and since qualifying have held several clinical, academic and senior management roles within NHS Scotland and higher education in Scotland - maintaining sessional work as a clinician and expert in psychological processes, interventions and approaches. 

Since 2014 I have worked full-time for Scottish Government. From 2013-2016 I was National Clinical Lead for Palliative and End of Life Care, overseeing the development of the 2015 Strategic Framework for Action on Palliative and End of Life Care. I also Chaired the National Advisory Group on Palliative and End of Life Care.  I lead the development in Scotland of new legislation on an organisational duty of candour covering 10500 health and social care providers. I was appointed by the Minister for Mental Health to lead the review of arrangements for investigating the deaths of patients being treated for mental disorder (which reported to the Scottish Parliament in December 2018) and by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Sport in 2019 to support the families affected by concerns relating infection prevention and control at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow. 

My qualifications are:

  • BSc (First Class) Hons in Psychology (University of Glasgow, 1992)
  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (University of Manchester, 1995)
  • Postgraduate Certificate in Cognitive Therapy (University of Durham ,1997)
  • PhD in Psychological Medicine (University of Glasgow, 2005)
  • Masters in Medical Law, with Merit (University of Glasgow, 2014)
I have written extensively in support of the delivery of evidence based psychological care, including chapters in the Oxford Textbook of Psychotherapy and the Cambridge Handbook of Psychology, Health and Medicine on palliative care. My 2013 book Living with Complicated Grief was Highly Commended in the British Medical Association Book of the Year Awards.  I am a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.  I am a Trainer, Certified CBT Therapist and Founding Fellow of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy.  

My hobbies and interests are politics, cinema, travel and media.   I am married and live with my husband in Glasgow.  I was the first University of Glasgow Professor to marry a same-sex partner in the University of Glasgow Chapel. 

My broad and varied career experience makes me uniquely placed to offer a bespoke expert psychological assessment, consultancy and intervention service.  I hope that you find the information on this website of use and very much look forward to hearing from you or your organisation.
