Psychology and Counselling Psychology

This page lists psychologists who work in private practice whether part time alongside their clinical psychology jobs or full time.

In the UK, although the term 'psychologist' is not protected, anyone calling themself a counselling psychologist or clinical psychologist must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). To check the status of anyone's registration you may wish to visit the HCPC website. Some psychologists may also have Chartered Psychologist status, an accreditation awarded by the British Psychological Society on successful completion of a 6 year education and training programme plus demonstration of knowledge, skills and autonomous practice to professional doctorate standard.

Psychologists specialise in a wide range of disciplines such as coaching or as an expert witness, however if you are looking for a psychologist specialising in psychotherapy you may also wish to visit our psychotherapy listings. The Royal College of Psychiatrists maintains a useful page clarifying the distinction between Clinical Psychologists, Psychiatrists and Psychotherapists. In brief:

  • Psychiatry is a medical speciality, like surgery or paediatrics, requiring 5 years training as a doctor followed by hospital training, before undertaking training for the necessary professional exams. Like other branches of medicine psychiatrists take a diagnostic approach, learning through the observation of unusual and distressing conditions and looking for patterns in order to identify "syndromes" which can be investigated, leading to methods of treatment.
  • A psychotherapist can come from any (medicine or psychology) or no professional background prior to their formal training. There are many different branches of psychotherapy based on different theoretical underpinnings each with a particular theory of mind which leads to different methods of intervention. Different therapies suit different people and situations, however compared to counselling psychology or psychiatry, psychotherapy tends to be more focussed on helping the individual to clarify their own problems and arrive at their own solutions.
  • A Clinical Psychologist has a university degree in psychology as well as NHS training and will deal with a wide range of problems from eating disorders to schizophrenia and dementia, often specialising in a particular type of assessment or therapy, such as cognitive behavioural therapy or neuropsychology. Compared to psychotherapy, clinical psychology tends to take a more formal experimental approach to exploring states of mind.

Depending on your particular situation the most appropriate professional may be less formally qualified than a counselling psychologist but with more experience in a particular area such as bereavement counselling.
