About me

David Kraft runs a successful psychotherapy practice in Harley Street. London. He originally trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the London Centre for Psychotherapy; however, after a period of time, he felt that it was important to develop a more integrative approach to treatment. As a result, he decided to train at the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy: here, he formalized his psychotherapy training and this led to UKCP accreditation and two diplomas—the DHP (NC) and ADHP (NC). David has an MSc in Psychology from Kingston University, and is a member of The British Psychological Society, holding the designated letter MBPsS. He is particularly interested in both social psychology and critical psychology and has devoted a great deal of time and energy to this subject. David also has a diploma in Clinical Hypnosis (DCHyp) and an Advanced Certificate in Clinical and Strategic Hypnosis (A.Cert.CSHyp). David is a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and a member of council for the Section of Hypnosis and Psychosomatic Medicine (starting in October 2014); he also belongs to The British Society of Clinical & Academic Hypnosis (BSCAH) where he acts as honorary secretary for the Metropolitan and South Branch. David’s psychiatric placement was at the Pembroke Centre—an early intervention service which is part of the Central & North West London NHS Foundation Trust.

David has been researching psychotherapy and clinical hypnosis for several years now, publishing regularly in academic journals. He has written over 20 articles on many subjects, including: phobic anxiety, covert sensitisation, anxiety disorders, sleep disturbances, hyperhidrosis, sexual disorders, IBS, anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, agoraphobia, social phobia and panic disorder. He is on the International Advisory Board for the International Journal of Psychotherapy and is a reviewer for the International Journal of Psychology & Behavioral Sciences.

David also has a Diploma in Clinical Psychology (Dip.Cl.Psy) and a number of other degrees and diplomas.
