Stuart Cale - ADHP(NC), FNSHPM, UKCP (Accred), PG Cert.
Hello, I'm Stuart, and I am a full clinical member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), a BACP individual member and a BUPA, Aviva Health, WPA and VitalityHealth recognised provider as well as a clinical supervisor and educator. I see clients who refer themselves, are referred by GPs, Occupational Health and Wellness Services and medico-legal providers privately both at my consulting rooms in Manchester and Bolton, and at their homes by appointment. Appointment times include evenings and weekends, contact me by email or telephone now to schedule your consultation.
I specialise particularly in working with self-esteem, anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder), depression, panic disorder, addictions, habits and phobias, but I have the necessary qualifications and experience to deal with a wide range of emotional, psychological and behavioural issues using integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling. If you wish to see more, and for details of my hypnotherapy practice then please click here http://talking-cure.co.uk/
My work is forward thinking, integrative, person-centered and solution-focussed, and I help clients to make quick and lasting change. My aim is to help you reach the place you want to be, and achieve your goals as easily as possible. I am both UKCP and CNHC accredited, a BACP individual member, an Anxiety UK approved therapist, a BUPA recognised therapist, and I adhere to the UKCP code of ethical conduct.
It is important to check the level of qualification and accreditation of any potential therapist, and below you can see my details, accreditation, affiliations and awards listed in full. I believe that accreditation with the UK Council for Psychotherapy is the pinnacle for therapists. The training that is necessary for admission as a full clinical member is a minimum of 4 years at Master's Degree Level.
By choosing me, you have access to the fruits of over eight years of intensive academic training in integrative psychotherapy and psychology to ensure that you are in safe hands. For many clients, psychotherapy allows a greater understanding of emotional and behavioural patterns and this in turn helps to create a healthier, more balanced perspective and effect positive change.
