My name is Stuart Morgan-Ayrs, born in Wales, living in Scotland and working in Scotland and Ireland. I have been a therapist since training 1993-6.
My first accreditation was through my diploma 1993-6 (externally verified through NVQ) in Humanistic counselling, Psychodynamic Analysis (Psychoanalysis), Cognitive Behavioural Analysis, and Clinical Hypnotherapy (including Cognitive Behavioural and Ericksonian). This is a UK CNHC Hypnotherapy regulator route.
My next accreditation several years later was with the National Association of Counsellors, Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists, again in Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Cognitive Behavioural psychotherapy, and hypnotherapy.
I have also completed the accreditation process for the National Council of Psychotherapists, and the International Council of Psychotherapists, with whom I am fully accredited and a Fellow.
I am also a Fellow of the Royal Scottish Society of Arts, the Royal Society for Public Health (UK), the Institute of Health Promotion and Education (UK). As well as my professional accreditation I have a MSc Psychology, a BSc(Hons) IIT specialising in human resources and systems modelling, and a BA(Hons) Open specialising in Psychology and Philosophy.
I am a published course, book chapter and journal article author in my professional field. I am also an NVQ Level IV Training and Development qualified trainer.
