I am a registered member of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and a fully accredited CBT therapist.
My qualifications are:
I have extensive experience of working in a variety of mental health settings, both within the NHS and private services. I have worked with NHS adult IAPT services in both a therapy and a supervisory role. In the last 3 years I have focused more on working adolescents experiencing mental health problems. In addition to providing private therapy, I am now a lecturer and supervisor at Reading University training CBT therapists employed by the NHS.
I specialise in using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to support individuals experiencing difficulties including trauma, anxiety, OCD, and depression. I work collaboratively with the individual to identify what patterns in thinking and behaviour could be maintaining their problem, and we then work together using CBT techniques to find new and more helpful ways of responding to triggers. My aim as a therapist is to provide a space where clients’ feel supported and listened too, so that we can work together to increase their confidence and ability to manage distressing problems.
