Andy Cottom: Psychotherapy and Trauma Counselling
|18th October 2017|
My professional qualifications
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Studies from Westminster Pastoral Foundation, one of the foremost psychodynamic and psychoanalytic training centres in the country. In addition I trained at the Tavistock and Portman Trust on the course that their trauma unit developed for a greater understanding of the psychoanalytic approach to helping traumatised clients. I have a Certificate of Studies from the Tavistock.
In addition to my client work, I also offer training workshops aimed at familiarising other therapists with some of the issues that they might encounter when working with traumatised clients. I also work as a mentor to therapists in training.
I am an active professional member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling. FPC is a national organisation of therapists who have undertaken extensive training to attend to the needs and concerns of those who need our assistance. The organisation seeks to safeguard the ethical practice of psychotherapy and counselling.
