Bob Smith: Counsellor & UKCP Reg'd Psychotherapist
I have a wide experience working as a therapist for over 20 years and am happy to support you with deeper issues that require support over a longer period or more immediate short term issues.
Celebrities bravely share their traumas but they are used to being in the public eye. For many of us it is very anxiety provoking to open up, but it is a sign of strength to ask for help.
I've worked with loss, bereavement, relationship breakdown, anxiety, sexuality, depression, anger management, mental, physical or sexual abuse, as well as the distress & confusion from recent or historical traumatic experiences. Working through these issues can be a very positive & liberating process.
Alongside my continuing professional development I am committed to pursuing my own personal growth and learning.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) registered Gestalt Psychotherapist and been fortunate to have worked as a therapist for well over 20 years.
My qualifications include a `Diploma in Counselling`, a `Masters in Human Relations & Counselling` and a `Masters in Gestalt Psychotherapy.` I'm also a member of three national therapeutic bodies, BACP, UKCP & GPTI to which I'm accountable to their codes of practice.
I was a Director of Birmingham Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre for 20 years until March 2018. I've previously worked in industry and commerce, as well as local government as a lecturer and careers counsellor - so have many working experiences to call on.
