I am very interested in those aspects of therapeutic practice that are held in common across theoretical divides, and thinking about what it is that is essentially therapeutic in the work that we do. I have considerable experience of being supervised by psychoanalytic as well as humanistic therapists and have found the experience invariably enriching. My own post-qualification psychoanalytic therapy has also proved invaluable in informing my rather ecumenical view of modern psychotherapeutic practice.Whilst having experience of supervising clinicians working in a variety of settings, I have particular expertise in supervising the work of clinicians who are working in NHS primary care (GP surgery) settings.
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
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).
