Hello - I am Dr Carla Rainbow, and I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, and a registered Counselling Psychotherapist.
I am highly trained in a number of psychological models so that I can ensure my service is as unique and individual as you are.
Working with me you will always be treated with respect, compassion, and confidentiality, and you will receive a friendly, effective, and fully insured service.
Amongst numerous qualifications, I hold two higher level diplomas, two undergraduate level degrees (first class), a postgraduate diploma, a master's degree (distinction) and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I am a registered member of the Health Care Professional Council (HCPC) entitled to hold the titles of both Practitioner and Clinical psychologist. I am a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), a certified member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) on their accredited register, and a registered member of the Society for Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. I am also registered as a EuroPsy meaning my qualifications are recognised across Europe and I am on the BPS register for approved supervisors (RAPPS).
This all means that not only am I qualified to the very highest standard, but I also work to the highest standards set out by these professional bodies.
If you feel that you would like further details or that you might like to work with me then please get in touch.
