Bio :
Christina Buxton BSc, DipPsych, MA, MPhil, PGCertHE, FHEA, C.Psychol, AFBPsS, CSci, Reg MBACP
I am a Chartered Psychologist, Associate Fellow of the BPS, and a Chartered Scientist and currently work as programme lead at the University of Chester for the Professional Doctorate in Psychological Trauma and Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a Trustee of the British Psychological Society and a senior practitioner member of the BPS Register of Psychologists Specialising in Psychotherapy, and on the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors. In addition, I am a registered psychotherapist with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a member of EMDR UK and Ireland, and an accredited member of Emotional Freedom Technique international (EFTi). My training and consultancy is in trauma informed practice for individuals and organisations. Research and clinical work is in individual's experience of PTSD and Complex Trauma, as well as in diagnosis and assessment. Recent research utilises a psychosocial approach to better understand the wider context in which individual's experience of trauma occurs and the meanings they draw from this. My recent book, Discourses of Psychological Trauma, provides a critique of the medical model and offers practitioners alternative ways of thinking and responding to those suffering from the effects of adverse life events.
