Emile Perkins MBACP(Reg.) MSt (Oxon) Dip Psyc, Cert Psyc
Seeking therapy can be a confusing process; one confounded by the fact that most come during a time of crisis. I provide a supportive, confidential space where we can think openly, free of judgement, about different aspects of you and your life.
I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy, both once and twice a week in time-limited and open ended therapy.
What to expect: in our initial appointment, I will seek to understand what is happening for you right now; how it may relate to past experiences and family history; and if our working together would be suited to your needs, or if another service would be more appropriate. It will give you an opportunity to build a knowledge of what my approach looks like, and to decide if you are happy with my way of working.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked across a wide range of clinical settings: private healthcare, NHS, university, school and forensic. I have experience in primary residential settings, outpatients, secondary and tertiary education, working with families, groups and organisations, and in conducting psychological assessments within high risk environments. The focus of my work is adult psychotherapy, however I will accept ages 16+.
Originally, I trained at the University of Oxford in psychodynamic psychotherapy over a period of four years, and have an ongoing research interest in lifespan development and personality disorder. I hold membership with UKCP, BACP and UPCA professional bodies.
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 membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
