I achieved a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and Anthropology at Goldsmith College, London University, in 1980. After five years' training at the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology at Regent’s College, London, I was awarded a Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling. I achieved an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling in January 2009.

Regent’s College is affiliated to the British Psychological Society, and is validated by the University of Wales. I am an accredited psychotherapist with BABCP and abide by their code of practice and ethics. I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, grounded in an understanding of early attachment relationships and how these connect with people’s present difficulties.

I studied for a post-graduate diploma in Mental Health and was awarded this from University of the West of England (UWE).  I was sponsored to study Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as part of Government’s Improving Access to Psychological therapies (IAPT) initiative. I achieved membership of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) and subsequently worked for Turning Point delivering CBT within the Primary Care Trust (PCT) in Bristol.

I have held various roles as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor within the NHS and independent counselling agencies. I've worked for: South London & Maudsley NHS Trust, Munro Centre - Guy's Hospital,  Aneurin Bevan Welsh NHS, Bristol’s NHS Primary Trust, Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP), Second Step, Ealing Abbey Counselling Service, Battersea Pastoral Centre, Network Counselling and Training and the Samaritans.

If you have any concerns about whether I am the right therapist for you, please feel free to contact me by telephone on 07962 892060 or by email at tricia@bristol-psychotherapycounselling.co.uk.
