Andreas Lind, MSc, MA, UKCP accredited
I am a UKCP-registered psychotherapist experienced at treating emotional and psychological issues. I divide my time between private work and the NHS, where I work as Prinicipal Psychotherapist in a large NHS Trust. I have many years of experience of assessing and treating people from a variety of backgrounds whose problems range from severe and complex to more easily treatable problems including: self-esteem, personal development, depression, anxiety, addictions, self-harm, personality problems and family and relationship concerns.
Therapy usually starts with an initial phone converation or email exchange. You can give brief details of the issues that concern you. If you decide to book and appointment we will arrange a first meeting to assess your needs more fully.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). In order to qualify for registration, I undertook a five-year clinical training with the Institute for Psychotherapy and Social Studies (IPSS). I abide by UKCP Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct in my practice.
I also hold an M.A. in psychotherapy and am a member of the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy based in New York.
In addition to my private practice I work in the National Health Service as Principal Psychotherapist.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
