DR ROSEMARY LODGE CPsychol. - Counselling Psychologist
Experience
 
I have been studying and/or working in the area of psychology for the last 11 years, and established my private practice as an existential therapist in the East Finchley/Muswell Hill area in 2008.  In my private practice I see individuals, couples and groups for counselling and psychotherapy.  Before setting up in private practice I worked as a counsellor at Turning Point and a psychotherapist at Claremont Psychotherapy Service.   

Teaching

I teach trainee counselling psychologists and psychotherapists at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling, where I am also a doctoral supervisor.  I have been published in the Journal of the Society for Existential Analysis and presented my research at their forum. 
 
Qualifications

BSc in Psychology. 
Foundation Year in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Doctorate in Counselling Psychology.
Chartered psychologist with the British Pyschological Society - 96606.
HPC registered Counselling Psychologist - PYL26548.
Member of the Society for Existential Analysis (SEA).
 
I abide by the BPS code of ethics.

Further training

I have undertaken further training in CBT and in group work.  
I am currently undertaking a BPS-approved certificate in Existential Supervision and Leadership training.
 
Previous experience
 
Before training to be a counselling psychologist I was a solicitor so I know about the stresses that working in a demanding job can bring.  Being a lawyer was not the right path for me so I particularly understand those who are seeking to make a career change or get off the 'rat run' in order to find a more meaningful way of life.
