Get in Touch


Throughout 2017, Psychology Chartered will be continuing to deliver a number of specialist training events designed to target very diverse and relevant clinical issues.

With over 20 years clinical experience supporting an extensive variety of clients, Dr Richard Maddicks will be leading these events, supported by Paul Walshe, who has a background in team leading for brain injury clients in Hampshire and more recently Occupational Psychology. Psychology Chartered is therefore ideally positioned to offer a holistic approach to training and guarantee it remains relevant to both the needs of the client and the support worker.

Psychology Chartered provides its own training programme, including bespoke events across the South.  We now have a track record of planning and delivering interactive and dynamic training sessions with a range of audiences.  The success of our project work in 2016 has meant the birth of a new ‘sister’ web-site designed to offer more information on this developing arm of psychology chartered. please visit for more information.

In addition to bespoke training sessions negotiated with support work employers, the following pre-designed courses are now available:

Effective Stress Management for Support Workers and Carers

Despite the evidence regarding the prevalence of stress and burnout in carers and support workers (and its association with increased absences due to sickness and poor staff retention), care organisations and employers often overlook the importance of addressing this. This practical 1 day course offers attendees opportunities to learn and practice new skills and techniques enabling them to manage to the demands and challenges of this work more effectively.
