About Robin Trewartha

Robin Trewartha MEd, MSc, C Psychol., Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS), HCPC Reg.

Please note you will find I am registered under my ‘official’ name:

Arthur Robert Trewartha

….. on the British Psychological Society (BPS) web site as member 90091.

….. and with the Health Care Professionals Council web site as Registrant PYL23028

I am presently semi-retired and practising as a freelance Chartered and Registered Counselling Psychologist as well as counselling supervisor.

Much of my time was occupied in the commercial sector. I had a special interest in the management of aggression and violence as well as critical incident debriefing (running post-incident support programmes), trauma and anxiety management.

Now I have a small private practice and work from home.

I have:

  • fifteen years experience as a qualified social worker, in the probation service and  child  & family work,
  • over ten years experience as a teacher in Higher and Further Education, including recent experience in the Medical School of the University of East Anglia (UEA).
  • around twenty years working as a counsellor before retraining as a psychologist. Here I specialised in work with Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP).
  • nearly twenty years practice as a chartered and registered counselling psychologist. I retired from practice in London in 2012.

I have training and qualifications in counselling psychology, professional supervision, family systems, psychological debriefing, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Brief and Strategic Therapy, Eye Movement De-sensitisation and Reprogramming (EMDR) and Clinical Hypnosis.

Other areas of professional interest include stress management,  bereavement, loss &  change. This included a time working with St Joseph’s Hospice in Hackney, London.

My specialist area of staff training was in the management of Aggression and Violence in the Workplace (1995). There is a manual relating to this topic written by me, alongside Dave Leadbetter. Many moons ago, we offered in-house training to local authorities and residential care establishments.

I am a Graduate, Chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS: No: 90091) as well as an Associate Fellow of the BPS.  I am a Chartered member of BPS Division of Counselling Psychology and a member of the BPS Section in Coaching Psychology.

Although trained in EMDR therapist, and a paid-up member of the UK Association, I am not accredited in this field. The same is true of my substantial training in Clinical Hypnosis. I have certification in Brief and Strategic Therapy as well as Systemic Therapy (working with couples and families).

This year (2020), after many decades of membership, I retired from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  I retired from the both the International (IATA) and UK Association for Transactional Analysis a while ago, but continue to be influenced by this model. If I had a ‘conflict of interest’, this would be it!!

I am a Trustee of a Domestic Abuse support, education and counselling service.

I am a BUPA, Aviva and AXA/PPP recognised practitioner.

I work alongside Christina Mason, my wife and partner and we work in different ways, giving our clients a lot of choice!!

I am attaching a brief video to help folk verify who I am as and when they are planning to visit me.

  1. I was initially drawn to Robin due to his extensive website content, which indicated to me that this is a calling not just a profession for him.

    I cannot recommend Robin highly enough! He immediately put me at ease and has such a lovely character. He has a vast wealth of knowledgable and experience to draw from and a wonderfully real and personable approach.

    Thank you Robin, it was an absolute pleasure.

  2. Hi Robin! Found your blog very interesting and useful. My first experiment was not rushing in to post a comment after the first time I looked at it, just because I felt I wanted to do the right thing and get it out of the way! Did have a sense of slight guilt for some time afterwards but also felt good about it because it was something new for me and it was ok to put it off for some time. I am going to send your link to some family and friends who I think would like to see it. Of course for me a lot of it was familiar after my various counselling courses; reading and CPD training for Cruse. I liked how the reading of the Blog could have different effects at different times, as you pointed out in the beginning. So will continue to dip into it every so often. Busy as ever, like yourselves, but I think we agreed that was a good thing!
    Love Maria
