Vicky Reynal, PGDip, MA, MBA, BS (Hons), MBACP
My training began in 1999 with a BA in Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. In the United States, a psychology degree encompasses a generalist training that equips the psychologist to assist a wide range of people. The training is a rigorous programme that combines academic coursework and supervised clinical experience with an aim to train them to assist people with varying mental health challenges.
Since then, I have completed two qualifications at Master’s level, a UK-based counselling training and a four-year postgraduate specialisation in psychodynamic psychotherapy at WPF Therapy, which is grounded in the psychoanalytic approach. Obtaining these qualifications has involved years of therapy, of supervised clinical practice and working with a range of psychological difficulties. I currently also work as a psychotherapist in the NHS.
