Delegate: Christopher Hope

Affiliations: UKCP Psychotherapist

Short Bio: I practice as a UKCP accredited clinical psychotherapist. I also provide clinical supervision. I run my own private practice as a psychotherapist. I also offer Psychotherapy to both families and Adults as well as children. Currently I also provide support to adults through and organisation “ Survivors in Transition” who have suffered from the consequences sexual abuse in their lives. I see my practice as having naturally evolved out of my personal and professional background having completed five years as a Locum social worker in a child in need team and previously as a CAMHS practitioner. In summary I have over thirty years experience working with children and families within various settings ranging through from Psychotherapist, Independent Consultant, Manager, Senior Practitioner and supervisor with specialist knowledge in the fields of therapy, trauma, adoption support, supporting children’s placements, children looked after, and safeguarding. I am committed to developing my skill base as I believe there is always something new to learn. I maintain a special interest in front line practice and have many year’s experience attending court, providing evidence, parenting assessments and the completion of court reports for civil/county courts in cases where disputes are affecting outcomes for children and courts are seeking resolution. I also possess many year’s experience working in a variety of group therapeutic settings and am comfortable with different modalities. These include systemic psychotherapy, family therapy, CBT, play therapy, person centred counselling, psychodynamic counselling and group work. The outcome of this varied experience and the depth of knowledge gained at different levels does enable me to transfer skills as required.
