Thanks, Phil for having the courage and commitment to your excellent work. To me you are a huge inspiration to do energy work alongside other therapies in my NHS work and to do so in a professional way as well as a person centred and experimental way. It all can work to the good. I hope that voices of compassion, creativity, integrity and reason like yours will be heard as the inevitable disillusion with the NICE world view sets in.

Hi Phil, I am Person-Centred Bacp accredited counsellor and 3yr trainee Psychotherapist. I was interested in finding out further about PEP & EMDR.I am touched by so many layers of information on your site and wanted to thank you that I gained more than I anticipated, feel enrichened by your transparency relating to Psychotherapy. My client experience at a local hospital and feedback from clients and professionals has confirmed that I don't have to be CBT trained or conform in order to be offered a paid job. I trust and believe in contact, connection, energy, empathy, UPR, acceptance and to be in a therapeutic relationship to be vital in order to heal internal process. This leads to individuals able to form better relationships with others. I value my Sikhism linking to spirituality. I am a Reiki Practitioner and believe in energy via connection forms healing. Rogers theory; I am trusting the client to be the expert in his/her process. Bowlby theory; I believe forms the foundation from our early experience. Stern theory; I believe supports attunement within the phenomenological element when connecting in therapy the unspoken, the non-verbal, I believe helps to repair/ form the lack of attunement from early experience. Allan Schore's evidence proves my existence as person centred practitioner that it is vital to empathically attune to client's neurones that are fired together and that then helps to form new neurones within the therapeutic relationship that perhaps helps to develop into new experience e.g. being heard, valued, understood and accepted? Bronefrenner theory; I believe it is a important aspect to what support is available for individuals, the lack of support can become the impact of feeling abandoned, neglected and isolated etc Being a play therapist linked to nine schools in Hertfordshire seeing children and young persons aged 5 -16yrs olds. I feel a space to act out seems to be vital, to release negative energy in order to heal... If only a safe space for adults to act out is provided perhaps we would not have so many re-visits to MHT? Being a keen artist, I am surprised what becomes emerged on a blank canvas in my experience it forms a powerful way of releasing and healing process. I don't expect to be employed by the NHS because I am not a Psychologist and CBT trained. Like myself many other Person centred BACP accredited counsellors/trainee Psychotherapist will feel the need to have a deeper knowledge of the medical model despite making a difference. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work at a Mental Health Unit. I feel very passionate about wanting to make a difference to individuals and the Sikh community which I was part of Sangat TV to bring awareness about Depression relating to barriers linking to Mental Health within the Asian community. Language is a barrier, diagnostics terms used and services relating to Counselling/ Psychotherapy etc forms a bigger barrier due to the vocabulary in English is non-existent within the Punjabi dictionary. This programme is to help de-stigmatise mental health and barriers within the community and NHS. This went live nationally 29th March 2011. Positive feedback from viewers and evidence is being collected relating to lack of resources due language being barrier etc. I wanted to share the above after reading 'NEW attacks on psychotherapy' - it's a shame despite having so much evidence, that is leading to the importance of therapeutic relationship is the tool in healing difficult process, that freedom of choice still lacks within the NHS. Many thanks and warm regards Herginder Herginder K Bhangoo MBACP(Accred), Trainee Psychotherapist
