I have over twenty years of experience as a psychotherapist practicing CBT to treat a wide range of psychological problems. These include anxiety disorders such as Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Specific Phobias, Complex Phobias such as Vomit Phobia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), Health Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I am happy to help you with Depression and to address past and present issues which have a negative effect on your well-being.
My training prior to doing CBT was initially as a registered general nurse and then as a registered mental nurse. My core profession in mental health nursing and subsequent work as a psychotherapist have given me a solid knowledge of mental health issues.
In addition to these trainings I have also done a year’s training at the institute for Group Analysis South East and a degree in Professional Practice in Health Care. In 2003 I completed my training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), a treatment used for the treatment for trauma related problems. In 2012 I completed my training as a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy teacher.
I have worked for many years in the NHS and am currently a Senior Psychological Therapist and supervisor for the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme. Should you wish to seek psychological therapy from your local NHS provider then please speak to your GP about this.
I have had a private practice in CBT since 1997. Through this I offer short or longer term psychotherapy to individuals who broker their own therapy or are medically insured. I also offer supervision and consultation to colleagues and training to organisations.
