Psychological therapist

Our psychological therapists are registered mental health professionals who may come from a range of clinical backgrounds. They are trained to listen and provide a safe place to talk about emotional and psychological problems that impact on your life with a view to helping you manage these difficulties more effectively.

Psychological therapists are qualified to use specific approaches and techniques depending on the type of psychological therapy. They will be happy to talk to you about the model of therapy that is being offered to you as well as their professional registration and qualifications to deliver this therapy. 

As the trust contains a number of teaching hospitals you may be offered therapy with someone who is in training but is closely supervised by an appropriately qualified clinician. Your therapist will discuss this with you as part of your assessment. 

There are many approaches to psychological therapy with various degrees of evidence underpinning them. We aim to provide access to evidence based talking therapies recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Evidence (NICE). Where novel therapeutic approaches are offered, for which clinical evidence is yet to be established, this will take place under tightly scrutinised research governance protocols.
