Out of This World: Suicide Examined – Antonia Murphy

Presenter

Antonia Murphy

I am a graduate of WPF, a UKCP registered psychotherapist with over 25 years of clinical experience in the NHS, the third sector, and private practice.

I managed the primary care counseling service in Derbyshire from 1998-2006, and was a founding director, responsible for professional and training standards, of Counsellors and Psychotherapists in Primary Care (CPC). My training portfolio includes design and delivery of CPC’s multi-modality supervision training program, and training on The Therapeutic Frame: Working at the Coal Face and Working with Envy. More recently, I have developed my long term clinical interest in working with suicide into a training which has been delivered to over 40 universities and other settings.

I’m the author of several papers on clinical aspects of psychotherapeutic practice in organizations. I am the former editor of the Journal for the Foundation of Psychotherapy and Counselling and an editorial board member of the Journal of Psychodynamic Practice. I’m also co-author of Psychological Therapies in Primary Care: Setting up a Managed Service (Karnac 2004) and author of Out of This World: Suicide Examined (Karnac 2017).

I work as a psychotherapist and supervisor in private practice in Nottingham.
