Dr Nicholas Rout
I work closely with you as an individual by employing psychological approaches that are relevant to your needs; these approaches include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Transactional Analysis. Such a diverse approach ensures the development of an effective therapeutic relationship with you and represents a responsive form of practice.
You are core to my practice, I draw from your own autonomy and treat everyone I engage with, with the dignity and respect they deserve. In adopting an ethical and empathic approach I place you at the centre of any work that is engaged in.
Working independently I have experience of engaging with clients using a number of methods including Skype, email, phone and face to face either on a 1:1 or in a group based manner.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) Practitioner Psychologist. I am also an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS), a full member of the division of Counselling Psychology and Chartered Scientist; I studied Applied Psychology as an undergraduate at Durham University before completing my Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at Teesside University.
I began my career working within the NHS and spent time working within H.M. Prison Service. I have also worked independently and also within charitable programmes. Whilst working within the NHS, I spent time working within primary, secondary and secure services.
I have extensive experience working in the voluntary sector for both MIND and independent local mental health services. My varied experience has enabled me to develop a broad experience base working with various client groups in a broad range of settings.
The variety of my training and work has enabled me to develop valuable insight into the delivery of therapeutic interventions. Furthermore, my doctoral thesis focused on exploring client perceptions of group intervention programmes.
The type of interventions I have accrued experience in have varied in delivery approach and timescale; such timescales have ranged from single sessions to work lasting a number of years.
