I have been qualified as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist for 10 years working in Primary Care. Prior to this I worked as a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN) in the NHS so have a wealth of experience treating people struggling with difficult problem areas.
I tailor individual programmes to suit the client's need to ensure specific cognitive and behavioural changes.
My work includes goal-setting- self assessment and feedback to ensure that progress is established and maintained as appropriate.
Relapse prevention work is an important part of this process to complete a therapy programme and ensure continuity of using learned techniques in everyday life once therapy has ended.
I have a special interest of incorporating “Third Wave” therapies –Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness into my work and have completed' workshops to use these approaches in my work effectively.
I strive to ensure that clients have a positive experience of using CBT therapy and can achieve their goals of participation with this treatment modality.
