Pain Management PsychologistsPsychological Therapists

Psychological therapists provided by The Pain Service may come from a variety of different disciplines but have been carefully recruited in respect to their qualifications, expertise and experience in the treatment of chronic pain conditions.

Our team of psychological therapists include Clinical Psychologists, Counselling Psychologists and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists.

Clinical Psychologists will have a first degree in psychology prior to undertaking their post graduate training in Clinical Psychology. Clinical Psychologists are trained in the diagnosis, assessment and treatment of mental health disorders.

Counselling Psychologists will have a first degree in a related subject and have completed post graduate training in Counselling Psychology, which focuses upon the provision of therapies for mental health conditions.

Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists are therapists from any mental health background, who have completed an advanced training course in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Once sufficiently experienced in CBT, they can become accredited as a CBT therapist through the British Association for Behavioural Psychotherapy (BABCP).

Our psychological therapists are all accredited with appropriate professional bodies such as the Health Professions Council (HPC), British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP).

Our psychological therapist will work in close liaison with a physiotherapist to address both physical and psychological approaches to pain management.

Our psychological therapists will use up to date evidence based treatment approaches.

The quality of the treatments undertaken by our psychological therapists with all clients referred to our service is ensured through our rigorous recruitment process, regular case supervision of their work by experienced clinicians and outcome studies.
