I am a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with 10 years experience of working with young children, adolescents and adults experiencing a range of emotional or psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety and long standing relationship issues. I offer long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy and short-term psychological support over the course of up to 6 psychotherapeutic consultations.
We start off with one or two consultation appointments to discuss your reasons for seeking help and in order to reach a decision about the most suitable form of therapy for you at this point.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and a registered Counselling Psychologist accredited with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a Chartered Psychologist of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
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 Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
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.
