About

Hello. Warning: Well meaning pseudo CBT therapist are here. BABCP is THE professional body that accredits qualified CBT therapists in the UK. https://www.cbtregisteruk.com/ I am also a registered UKCP Psychotherapist. This required a 5 year University level training culminating in 2 X PgDip's in Existential Psychotherapy. Check here for Psychotherapists: https://www.psychotherapy.org.uk/ I also undertook PgDip in mindfulness based psychology at Bangor University. I have been working as a psychological therapists for over 20 years. I don't just listen I elicit directions through your difficulties. I am usually fully booked!
CBT, via the homework tasks (you use the a journal book alongside mindfulness exercises of present moment awareness) to fully understand 'what' is happening 'when' it happens, to ACT differently. If you prefer Existential therapy it is less 'directive' and similar to other therapies on this site, though both approaches are probably more challenging!
I have 3 separate Masters level trainings and have been working as a psychological therapist since the mid 90's. 17 years experience of working in the NHS as a psychotherapist since 2002. I have been through many personal and significant life changes and challenges so you will get someone who is real and open with you.
