Albert Phipps BSc (first class) PGCE, PG Dip (CBT), MBPSs, BACP registered

Bolton, Lancashire, BL5
07582135422 07582135422

I am a qualified psychology lecturer and I have a British Psychological Society approved certificate in essential supervision skills. Moreover, I have many years experience of teaching and mentoring/supervising students at under and postgraduate levels. This expertise was recognized when (in 2016) I was awarded personnel tutor of the year at The University of Bolton.

Similarly I have taught supervised (and marked the work of) students on a MSc in counseling at Salford University. I have also marked the work of students who undertook the post graduate CBT course at the University of Bolton; I have also supervised the clinical/counseling practice of two students who were doing PhD's also at the University of Bolton. I am also a qualified PGCE assessor. In other words I have mentored observed and graded student teachers when they are doing their teaching practice. 

Similarly I have over 10 years experience of volunteering at MhIST plus being a trustee (and former director of counselling) and I have also been a clinical assessor at 1-point Bolton and I run my own private practice. Moreover I have written, and given mental health training, to teachers and other professionals such as  Department of Works and Pensions job coaches. Likewise for 3 years I was a public/lead governor at Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Trust.

All this means I have worked with many different types of issues and gained a great deal of diverse experience/knowledge. I am a registered member of the BACP as well as being a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). Likewise, I attend many CPD courses, therefore I am familiar with a diverse range of therapeutic approaches/issues; all of which will help me support you. 

My fees for trainees and qualified therapists who volunteer for charitable organisations are £30 a session (up to an hour and a half) for all other therapists it is £40 per session. The service I provide includes the completion any paperwork needed for trainee therapists whilst on their course and the commitment that I will be readily contactable if needed, and I will reply to any query within 24 hours (allowing for holidays and illness!) of receiving it.

At the moment I am supervising several people for example, one supervisee is a highly experienced BACP accredited client centered therapist and former FE lecturer (counseling), another is a psychotherapist/hypnotherapist and currently is a counselling lecturer at a local college, whilst another is a mental health support worker at a local university and is doing an integrative training course.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
