Training, qualifications & experience
Since 1994, the RCPS has provided therapy at an affordable rate. This has been achieved by the use of integrative therapy such as relational-exploratory therapy, CBT, existential, and mindfulness methods.
Currently 80% of our therapists are fully qualified. The remaining therapists are in the process of completing a long term and recognised by UKCP, BACP or BPS training courses.
All therapists are in personal therapy/ self development and attend fortnightly supervision (at the RCPS) as a way of monitoring and supporting clinical practice.
The Management Team are all accredited psychotherapists.
