Dr Adam Burley
Consultant Clinical Psychologist
Edinburgh Access Practice
Dr. Adam Burley works as a consultant clinical psychologist at the Edinburgh Access Practice, a service dedicated to the provision of care to individuals who struggle to access mainstream care. He also provides input to wide range of public and third sector organisations across the homeless sector. He graduated from St. Andrews University in 1994 with a psychology degree and a large overdraft, and worked at the Royal Hospital for Neurodisability in London before embarking on clinical psychology training in Edinburgh in 1998. He then ran away to the east coast of New Zealand, establishing a clinical psychology service in a rural district working with marginalised populations. He returned to Scotland in 2004 to develop the homeless clinical psychology and psychotherapy service which he currently runs. He has a particular interest in health inequalities, exclusion dynamics, early years, and the psychology of adversity. He is obsessed with collecting 20th century glass and refurbishing steel frame bikes from the 1980’s.
