Mr Costas Papageorgiou

Consultant Clinical Psychologist

Dr Costas Papageorgiou began his clinical experience at the Oxford University Department of Psychiatry assisting in research and treatment studies that now form part of recommended clinical guidelines.


From 1997 to 2002, he worked as Senior Clinical Psychologist at North Manchester General Hospital and Research Fellow at the University of Manchester.


From 2002 to 2005, he was the Deputy Director of the Specialist Service for Affective Disorders in Manchester and Senior Lecturer at the University of Lancaster.


Since 2005, he has been working as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Priory Hospital Altrincham and The Sefton Suite. Dr Papageorgiou’s expertise and research has focused on cognitive and metacognitive theories and therapies of emotional disorders, particularly depression and treatment-resistant depression. He has co-authored the first studies examining the link between rumination, depression, and metacognition, and co-edited the first volume documenting these links, entitled “Depressive rumination: Nature, theory and treatment”. He has also co-authored the self-help book “Coping with depression: A guide to what works for patients, carers, and professionals”.
