Patricia Hodgson ~ MA, BA.(Hons), BAAT, HCPC Registered.
Hello, my name is Patricia, I am a qualified psychotherapist and I have many years of working in adult mental health, with my main experience being in the NHS.
I work flexibly to help you move forward with your life. I am able to work with depression, anxiety, personality disorders and more, so please do get in touch.
I offer a free 20 minute session to discuss your needs and to see if we are going to be able to work successfully together. If you are happy to proceed, I can see you weekly, fortnightly, monthly or maybe just a session periodically.
We will work to whichever way suits you best.
I imagine life may be difficult for you at the present time, so if you are reading this please do ring or email and have a chat. I will make the sessions as comfortable for you as I can, and I will not ask you to share anything that you don’t wish to.
It is important we build a good relationship in which to enable you to move forward in your life and start to enjoy your days again.

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.
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.

- Free online or telephone session
- £50 per 50 minute session of Psychotherapy
- £50 per 60 minute session of Supervision
I can offer a reduction in fees dependant on your circumstances, and the sessions are paid for by bank transfer or cash.
