Therapists at Nightingale Hospital
Therapy is very beneficial as it provides a non-judgmental, confidential and safe space for people to experience being listened to, accepted and understood. Feelings, thoughts and behaviours can be explored. An individual’s past and present experiences can then begin to form the basis for new understanding.
Nightingale Hospital’s therapy services department provides a wide range of evidence-based treatments and therapies. We are proud to state that we were the first acute mental health hospital to have been formally accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) for our counselling and psychotherapy services. This accreditation means that patients and referrers can be assured that our therapy services meet the highest levels of clinical governance, delivery, and clinical outcomes.
Our large therapy services team consists of more than 80 therapists, with a mix of counselling and clinical psychologists and psychotherapists. This team also includes art therapists, family therapists, dieticians, and occupational therapists.
We work with every individual to understand their particular needs. We have a holistic approach to helping people through therapy, offering group therapy, family therapy and individual therapy options. Our treatments have clearly defined goals and aim to empower patients with various techniques that they can put into practice in their everyday lives.
