How do I write a professional profile that stands out?

Before we are able to approve your application, you will need to put together a professional profile and upload this on your therapist account with a photo for the website.  Use the template below as a guide and try to include as much information regarding type of patients and problems as possible so that you do not alienate any potential referrals. Also, please remember that experience whilst training counts as experience.

The ideal length of a profile is between 500 and 1000 words. Kindly use the following profile headings;

  • My Credentials
  • My Approach
  • About Me

My Credentials  -  You may write your qualifications and training (including length of time spent, areas of expertise)

I am a Psychologist in Psychotherapy working integratively, drawing from psychodynamic and CBT approaches. I have worked in the field of counselling and psychotherapy in New York and abroad since obtaining my psychology degrees. I have worked for a number of organisations including Adult Mental Health Services, Psychiatric Inpatient Units, Children and Young People Services, women's organisations, Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Services, and in the NHS. My areas of specialty include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, personality disorders, neurodevelopment issues, couples work, abuse, anger and post-traumatic stress. I have a degree in psychology, a Masters in clinical psychology and a Doctorate in clinical psychology. I am chartered with the British Psychological Society and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

My Approach - You may describe what is unique about your approach to therapy.

My aim is to provide a confidential setting for you to explore your issues in a safe place and find constructive solutions to your problems. Our focus will be firmly on the future, on how you want to be, and how you want to feel, next week, next month, and next year. I love my job as a therapist and I’m extremely passionate about what I do. The work is often challenging—for both therapist and client—but having experienced the process of therapy myself, I fully appreciate the extraordinary benefits it can have in our lives, present and future. No-one deserves to be unhappy or afraid, and for me it’s endlessly gratifying to see my clients making positive and lasting changes in their lives, knowing where they want to be, and now confidently on a path to getting there.

About Me - A short description about yourself outside of work

Outside of work, I spend most of his time either working out or watching different types of sports. I am a big tennis fan and for me having an active lifestyle is the most important thing that keeps me energetic and productive during the day.
