Roddy McDowall - UKCP registered
I am a psychotherapist and I have been working for seven years with groups and individuals.
Therapy provides you the opportunity to remove obstacles to a more fulfilling life including more intimate and meaningful relationships. Be it a personal problem like anxiety, depression, loss of a loved one or relationships that are lacking meaning or intimacy, my therapeutic approach provides you a safe and supportive environment for you to make sense of your experiences and gradually bring about change.
I am currently offering once weekly short-term online group therapy free of charge.
You can contact me by telephone or email and we can arrange an initial consultation which will give us both the opportunity to determine if we want to work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
Qualified Group Analyst (IGA)
My experience comes from working with both individuals and groups in an NHS secondary care mental health setting.
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist.
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.
