Dr Niklas Serning






I work in an existential phenomenological way, yet my first degrees were in CBT and psychodynamic work with adults and children and I have also done training in core process psychotherapy. I'm a doctor of existential counselling psychology and psychotherapy.

I have experience from a wide range of settings and clients, and have set up the St Matthias Park Pupil Referral Unit counselling service. I'm also active in research, and have presented and published my work at the World Congress of Existential Therapy, Society of Psychotherapy, British Psychological Society, University of Bristol, the Hermeneutic Journal and Society of Existential Analysis. I'm a member of the editorial review panel of Existential Analysis, Professional Doctorate External Examiner at Teesside University and Regent's University - University of Wales, and also sit on the ethics board for NSPC/Middlesex University.

UKCP, HCPC and BPS guidelines are in sync with my own ethical position, and am experienced in engaging with depression, trauma, anxiety, relationship issues, sexualities, identity and meaning.
