Peter Watson MSc, UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
As a registered UKCP psychotherapist I offer goal-oriented short-term therapy in addition to deeper long-term work, as part of the Reframe Counselling and Psychotherapy team based in London's Canary Wharf and Berkeley Square. I can also offer some sessions at Oval, Kennington.
I draw upon different schools of psychotherapy in order to establish how the past might be impacting the present and how current issues in your private or working life may be causing you difficulties or distress.
In order to help you recover from whatever problems are troubling you the therapeutic relationship that you and I create together can be a source of support and comfort while providing a place in which to make sense of these issues so that, not only do you feel relief from your distress, but you can once again have greater authorship of your own life.
As an Integrative Psychotherapist I prize the relationship between myself and my clients, providing help with issues such as:
Loss of confidence
Bereavement and loss
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and trained at the Metanoia Institute, London.
I have extensive experience in dealing with a wide range of problems in many varied settings including business, finance, publishing and the LGBT community, at our Canary Wharf and Berkeley Square premises, as well as working with clients in an NHS Hospital, HM prison, HIV clinics and The Priory, London.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. 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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
£60 to £80 per 50-minute session (depending on circumstances).
Sessions are available in the early morning, during working hours and in the evening.
At our initial session we will discuss whatever past or present issues have brought you into therapy and how the process is likely to work. We also talk about contractual details such as fees, making and cancelling appointments, confidentiality and other relevant matters.
We will also look at your relationships, family history and any past traumas or deficits in order to help decide how these may impact your current situation. During our time together I strive to ensure that my work offers empathy and understanding, is non-judgmental and is conducted in an environment which is safe, secure and entirely confidential.
