Nicole George MBACP, MA, MSc Psychological Counselling, MSc Psychology, MBPS
My therapeutic approach is collaborative and pluralistic. These means I don't adhere to one particular method or technique of therapy delivery. Depending on your particular situation, an experience of therapy is jointly created that aims to help you get closer to your unique potential and desired life outcomes. This way of working is informed by humanistic principles and ideas from a broad range of philosophical and psychotherapeutic disciplines. These include psychodynamic theory and third wave cognitive-behavioural techniques that are adapted to meet your needs at this point in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MSc in Psychological Counselling, an MSc in Psychology and a post-graduate diploma in psychodynamic counselling (PG-Dip Counselling) (University of Sussex). I worked for a number of years as an addiction treatment therapist for the Priory Group. My work in the NHS has included neuropsychiatry (2.5 years), health psychology (1 year) and working with the Voices Clinic (2 years). I have also held a full time post working for the NHS Veterans' Treatment, Liaison and Intervention Service (TILS).
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.
