So what titles do I use? Generally “Clinical Psychotherapist”, which is the description on my NACHP accreditation statement, or “Psychoanalyst”, which describes a major part of my work. otherwise I tend to use “Multi Modal Clinical Psychotherapist”, which reflects the multiple models employed in my work. I tend not to use “life coach” since people often think of USA style motivational speakers. I also avoid “counsellor”, because although I use person centred counselling where appropriate, I tend to be more proactive and focused than that particular open model.

Above all else I try to combine Humanistic and Psychodynamic theory and their common area of philosophy from East and West, and employ them around research evidenced and NICE recommended treatment strategies.
