Dr Toni Wright
I am a practitioner psychologist with over 30 yrs experience in a wide variety of settings & contexts. For me, your experiences and what they mean to you are key in understanding and coping better with whatever is concerning or distressing you. I offer an integrative approach which is time-conscious, where the therapeutic approach is determined by your individual needs as a person. I believe a great deal can be achieved in a short time when people work together in a focussed way. I am happy to see individuals or couples, and appointments do not necessarily have to be weekly - it is important that we work together in a way that is appropriate to your circumstances. I am an experienced supervisor, and offer clinical supervision to students & practitioners
Training, qualifications & experience
My academic qualifications are in psychology; I am a BPS chartered psychologist, an HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist and a Senior Accredited counsellor with BACP. I qualified in 1989 & have been working in the field ever since. I am an active practitioner and a retired senior lecturer in counselling & psychology in higher education.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
