Dr Brian Solts BA (Hons Oxon), MInstGA, DClinPsych
I am a clinical psychologist and group analytic psychotherapist. I work with individuals, couples and groups using a range of different models including psychodynamic psychotherapy, group analytic psychotherapy and IPT (interpersonal psychotherapy).
I provide psychological assessments and brief consultations to help you understand your present difficulties. I can help you think about the type of therapy that might help you most, for instance CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), IPT (interpersonal psychotherapy) or systemic work for couples. I like to develop what I call an individualised psychological formulation based on what you tell me and how we both come to understand what might be happening.
I was employed as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist in the NHS for many years, leading services and supporting others in their work. I now work independently, offering face-to-face work in Brighton as well as online assessments, ongoing therapy, brief focused therapy and supervision for qualified or training professionals.
I am a member of the British Psychological Society (70234) the Institute of Group Analysis and the Group Analytic Society International (GASI). My professional practice is regulated by the Health Professions Council (PYL21151). I am also a qualified individual practitioner and supervisor in IPT and a member of IPT-UK (https://www.iptuk.net) and the international society for IPT (ISIPT) https://interpersonalpsychotherapy.org
My working life has focused on general adult mental health and I have provided services in both community and psychiatric inpatient settings, as well as acute hospital settings for people with HIV, and sexual health services.
