The APT Awards for Excellence 2019

The Association for Psychological Therapies recently held their first conference for The APT Awards for Excellence at College Court Conference Centre in Leicester.

The conference on the 24th September 2019 brought together mental health professionals from across the British Isles, who work in a variety of settings in the NHS and Independent Healthcare. The day featured 12 finalists, who had to present their submissions, and were judged by Dr William Davies (Consultant Psychologist and Chief Executive of APT), Dr Sophie Davies (Consultant Psychiatrist and APT Director of Governance), and Dr Martin Horler (Consultant Clinical Psychologist and APT Tutor).

We received a number of excellent entries this year, and being shortlisted was an achievement in itself. The day featured the following 12 finalists in 3 categories:
