Our Therapists

At HTC, we believe that nurturing a strong community of therapists is key to the provision of high quality, sustainable therapeutic services.

HTC's thriving therapeutic community enables us to operate as a centre of clinical excellence. We offer our team of therapists many opportunities to learn and to develop together whilst also supporting each other. Our rich schedule of CPD and support groups include a BLM discussion group, a complex case discussion group and a number of themed reflective practice groups.

Our diverse range of therapists are spread across four levels, each of which reflects the individual's level of experience and training:

Trainee

Students in training with prior clinical experience provide low-cost counselling and therapy and receive in-house supervision.

Graduate

Qualified, experienced practitioners who are developing their practice and continue to receive in house supervision.

Associate

Skilled and experienced practitioners who have BACP accreditation or are registered with UKCP, BPC or BPS.

Senior Associate

Practitioners with over 10 years post qualification experience, with a broad range of skills including clinical supervision, consultation and training.

operating officer

I joined BTC in July 2022 in my current role, which oversees the day-to-day financial activities at BTC/HTC, maintaining the clinical systems we have in place, and providing technical assistance to those within the organisation who require it.

Another key aspect of my role is contributing to the development of new systems and solutions for HTC/BTC which further help support the community to access low-cost therapy. In 2020 I graduated from the University of Brighton with a master’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering and am thoroughly enjoying applying my technical skills to this role and contributing to the wellbeing of others. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors, travelling, and live music.

Maureen McCamley (she/her)

Therapist / trauma Lead

I am an associate practitioner at Brighton Therapy Centre where I have been working as a clinician since 2012.

I have developed a particular interest in trauma work which has taken me from my psychodynamic roots towards a more pluralistic way of working, incorporating EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), Internal Family Systems and neurobiology.

I have worked for many years with marginalised and minority groups and for the past 20 years a great deal of the focus has been on work with refugees and vulnerable migrants. I bring this experience to my role as Trauma Lead for Brighton Therapy Centre and, alongside the Clinical Lead, have developed our work in this area.
