In order to be an effective therapist it is important to have a range of life experiences, to really like people, and to study hard, both on a practical and academic basis. Practical skills are needed to work directly with clients, but the theory and academic base is also required to understand what you are doing and why you need to do it. It is also vital to continue with on-going training, lectures and workshops throughout professional life to enhance and hone existing skills, plus enabling the use of any new techniques that may become available.
It is, therefore, imperative that your therapist has qualifications that are recognised worldwide, such as degrees from established Academic Institutions in the UK, or qualifications that would be accepted by a UK University such as The University of East Anglia, or Warwick University. This will indicate that the qualifications are of a suitable and equal standard of education and practical experience, as those courses offered and examined in the UK.
Unfortunately some therapists will claim to have spurious First Degrees, Masters, Doctorates or even Professorships, and in fact all they have done is to pay for a pretty certificate from another country/continent, with no onus on them to have studied at all, and having no valid measurement of skill or knowledge.
The academic qualifications achieved by Josephine P Teague were gained from UK Universities and Institutions. The vocational qualifications were gained from reputable associations in the UK and USA.
