Psychotherapy & psychiatry

Psychotherapy in the NHS is part of the mental health services. It is a specialist resource alongside the general psychiatric services for the treatment of those patients who will be able to benefit from it. The Royal College or Psychiatrists has recommended that psychotherapy as a service is expanded nationally so that it is available all areas.

While all psychiatrists will have received a basic training in psychotherapy, a smaller number of psychiatrists will have completed a higher specialist training in psychotherapy and are then designated “consultant psychiatrists in psychotherapy”. Together with clinical psychologists, they are normally responsible for the psychological treatment services in NHS trusts.

Various reports on psychological treatments and the arrangements needed to provide them have been issued in recent years by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. Local NHS services will be able to give information about what is provided in their area.
