Rozen Rauf - Chartered Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Family Therapist
Sometimes in life, we may feel stuck or unsure of what to do next. At these times, we may turn to others to help us manage complicated feelings, problems, conflicts and distress. The people I meet with seek out professional support when their experience, skills and solutions are no longer working for them. These difficulties are experienced as: recurring relationship problems; wounding communication patterns; feelings of sadness, anger or despair; or feeling overwhelmed by everyday life.
I work with individuals, couples and family groups. My experience is of particular benefit to those with relationship struggles leading to symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma or loss. I have extensive experience of working with clients living with enduring physical or mental health difficulties and where there are issues around identity or trans-cultural trauma.
Together, clients and I create a safe space in which to find a way forward.
I am committed to the provision of quality psychological and psychotherapeutic care for clients and am experienced in delivering both brief and extended psychotherapy interventions. I bring my professional training, skills and experience to our meetings and work with integrity, honesty and the belief in life-long personal change and growth. I work within and am bound by the ethical frameworks of the professional organisations I am a member of: Association for Family and Systemic Practice (AFT), British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), British Psychological Society (BPS), Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the United Kingdom of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (UKCP). To comply with these memberships, I have regular clinical supervision of my work.
I am an Approved Clinical Supervisor (Metanoia Institute) and on the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (British Psychological Society).
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked as a therapist for over twenty years in a variety of settings (NHS, charitable and private sectors). I work with people trying to cope with a broad variety of life's difficulties. My training and skills enable me to offer a professional, flexible and suitable approach when working with individuals, couples and/or families.

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.
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.

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.
