Training, qualifications & experience

Since 1994, the RCPS has provided accessible psychological intervention at an affordable rate. This has been achieved by the use of integrative therapy by our therapists (mainly relational-exploratory therapy, CBT, existential, and mindfulness methods).

Since 2012, 50% of our therapists are fully qualified and some are also accredited. The remaining therapists are in the process of completing a recognised training course.

All therapists are in personal therapy/ self development and attend fortnightly supervision (at the RCPS - Maria B Thieme) as a way of monitoring and supporting clinical practice.

The Management Team are all accredited psychotherapists.
