Dip = Short CPD Diploma.
BMJ = British Medical Journal Clinical update course based on NICE
Lvl is externally accredited level award.
Clinical competency workshops are clinical practitioner competency training workshops of usually at least one day for already qualified practitioners to become competent in new practitioner skills.
Uni x credits are university courses of several weeks with the stated credits at undergraduate level.
Certificates (Cert) are competency level courses for CPD for established practitioners.

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.
