Dr Per Svensen
My name is Per Svensson. I am a Medical advisor for the team of therapists at the Warwickshire and Worcestershire Counselling Service. I have had a licence to practice medicine in Sweden and Norway since 1997.
During my medical studies at The Karolinska Hospital in Stockholm, I also studied practical philosophy at Stockholm University and I have a special interest in medical ethics. I have pursued philosophical and ethical studies alongside my work as a doctor and I received a Masters degree in bioethics and medical ethics in 2004 from The Catholic University of Loeven, in Belgium. I also have a diploma from The Berne Institute in the UK in Transactional Analysis Counselling and Psychotherapy.
