About me

Michael is a warm and knowledgeable integrative psychotherapist who has worked in health care organisations for over 10 years. Michael specialises in the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for a range of mental health difficulties including anxiety, depression, specific phobias, OCD and health anxiety.

Our organisations statement ‘Always Authentic, Always Therapeutic’ describes exactly what we stand for at Swift Psychology. After speaking with so many clients over the years, it was disheartening to hear that people were not involved in their own care and were frequently met with therapists who were not experienced in providing the level of psychological support they expected- we wanted to change that.

At Swift Psychology, we put authenticity and honesty as our priority. Our practitioner Michael Swift has received ongoing and advanced training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Health Psychology which allows him to provide an individual and effective treatment. In addition, we will always be transparent in the treatment we are providing, the steps that we will take and the likely outcomes you can expect to see.

Swift Psychology facilitates change, with you at the centre of care.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
