Psychology Chartered

Welcome to Psychology Chartered

We believe that psychology can change how we live and improve who we are.

 Whether young or old, healthy or sick, an individual, family or organisation, psychology has influenced our lives in significant and positive ways.

 This isn’t just our view. The evidence base for psychological interventions and treatments speaks for itself and underpins its ever growing contribution to health and social care, education, law, business and elite sport.

Psychology Chartered has been applying this knowledge and experience to real life problems since 2003.  However, as the evidence base grows and psychological skills evolve, our dynamic service is evolving to meet the increasingly challenging demands of living today and the changing world we live in.

We believe that achieving a sustainable and dynamic business is entirely compatible with maintaining our strong values regarding working collaboratively, sharing ideas and offering our professional expertise via consultation, training and supervision.

We know that we can only progress and develop by listening to clients, referrers and each other. In fact, being entirely open to feedback and advice makes our service more responsive and relevant. We look forward to working with you, accepting the challenges presented in the course of this work with respect and compassion but also an unwavering belief and confidence that psychology is a compelling force for positive change and innovation.
