About me

Hello, I am Herman Holtzhausen. I practice psychotherapy face to face and online from my rooms in Stamford, Lincolnshire. Are you interested in exploring ways of improving your mental well being? Perhaps you want to address a specific mental health issue that concerns you or you just want to make sense of your life at this point?

I have in excess of 25 years' experience, passionately dedicating best practice to each of my clients.

Please visit my website where you may book your session online if you wish.

Any questions? You're welcome to contact me directly.

Kind regards

Herman

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a PhD in Systemic Therapy and a Masters in Online Therapy. My experience spans 25 years ranging from my role as a psychotherapist in an independent GP practice, a contracted couples and relationship counsellor with Relate, other institutional roles and private practice.

Online experience: Since 2010. My Masters dissertation (2013) was on the feasibility of online counselling. The indications are predominantly positive. I use whatever platform suits my clients, usually Skype, FaceTime, Whatsapp or telephone.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
