HELP IS HERE WEBSITE by David Carpenter.
David Carpenter, the original founder of this websites gained substantial training in counselling and psychology when he trained at Coventry University, and qualified in social work in 1983. While working as a Social Worker, he trained in hypnotherapy, qualifying in 1989, and began practice as a therapist.
He began training in the approach to psychotherapy called Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), gained NLP foundation skills certification in 1990, certification as an NLP Practitioner in 1991, and certification as a Master Practitioner in 1997, becoming an NLP Psychotherapist accredited by the NeuroLinguistic Psychotherapy and Counselling Association, registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy. In 1998 he was elected a Fellow of the Hypnotherapy Society.
The work has included staff counselling for a number of large organisations in public and private sectors, and work with private individuals, some of whom have referred themselves, while others have been referred by Medical Practitioners. In addition, for some years he taught practice development as part of ongoing training for therapists.
Until recently, David Carpenter was also a member of the NLPtCA Accreditation Team, which is responsible for evaluating the training, experience and professional practice of those applying for Accreditation as NLPsychotherapists, and accrediting applicants when appropriate. He was recently appointed as a Director of the NLPtCA.
His practice has gained a reputation for careful, effective, skilled, and caring work with those suffering from a wide variety of emotional, psychological and psychosomatic problems.
David Carpenter continues to offer appointments to clients at the consulting room at his home. He also continues to offer bespoke training courses to organisations. However, after 18 years of practice, David has recently become semi-retired, no longer accepts referrals from Employee Assistance Programmes, and no longer maintains a separate practice building.
He no longer has an NHS provider number, and can no longer accept NHS referrals hypnotherapists in my area.
In the UK there is no law to prevent anyone at all from calling him/herself a hypnotherapist or psychotherapist, and any reputable therapist will be happy to answer questions about training and therapy practice.
