Staff spotlight: Daniel Hopkins

Daniel joined UKCP’s Regulation Team in 2015, having previously worked in the NHS, the Legal Aid Agency, and English Heritage.

He continues to find the differing philosophies and systems of ideas within psychotherapy fascinating, having studied social and cultural anthropology at Brunel University. His training equips him with skills for working with people, gathering information, and evaluating a variety of material.

Individual and organisational members of UKCP alike may encounter Daniel at some point, through his varied roles in our quality management procedures. These include assessing registrants as part of the Registrant Sample Audit, or visiting organisations as part of the reviews of UKCP’s training and accrediting organisations across the UK.

Daniel provides support and advice to our Education, Training and Practice Committee, who are responsible for setting our standards for education, training and continuing professional development. He also processes applications for the European Certificate for Psychotherapy. So, if you are thinking of working abroad, get in touch to check your eligibility to apply.

Daniel and the Regulation Team’s responsibilities are essential for maintaining and quality assuring the standards, guidance and policies that form the regulatory framework of UKCP. Daniel feels particularly lucky that his role enables him to work with individuals and organisations from across the different modalities of psychotherapy.
