Staff spotlight: Dora Beggs

Dora joined UKCP’s Regulation Team in 2010. She previously worked for over six years at Citifiancial, latterly in their policies and procedures team in Baltimore, Maryland. While there, she also volunteered at Habitat for Humanity and a local soup kitchen.

Her first role in the UK was at Comic Relief where she worked on two campaigns: Sport Relief 2008 and Red Nose Day 2009. As a result of her roles at Comic Relief and other volunteer opportunities, she felt strongly about continuing to work in the charity sector. Her time at UKCP has built on that passion, making her an advocate for better understanding of mental health.

Dora has worked closely with many individual and organisational members of UKCP over the years. She assesses registrants as part of the Registrant Sample Audit, assesses new and existing UKCP training and accrediting organisations, has written quality assurance procedures and reports, and processes applications for the European Certificate for Psychotherapy.

In her tenure with UKCP, she has worked closely with various committees including the Professional Conduct Committee, the Membership Committee, the Education, Training and Practice Committee, and the Practitioner Research Network. For the past several she years has provided support and advice to UKCP’s Ethics Committee. She recently has been responsible for ensuring the consultations and workshops for the new draft Code of Ethics ran smoothly.

Dora 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.
