I qualified from Oxford University with a full Diploma in cognitive behaviour therapy in 2016.
The Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre (OCTC) is the world leader in research and teaching in CBT and incorporates Mindfulness and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy into the training.
I have a degree with honours in Psychology, and I am a Graduate member of the British Psychological Society.
I’m a fully qualified Re-Evaluation Counsellor, and have completed training in attachment theory in adults and an 18 month training in supervision (Brighton University).
I have recently worked for CAMHS in Halifax as a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist where I worked with young people up to the age of 18 who were struggling with a number of different mental health issues. These ranged from perfectionism and stress; anxiety and depression to post-traumatic stress disorder .
I have specialist experience of working with adults who self-medicate using alcohol or non-prescription drugs in order to manage their mental health. I have worked alongside drug and alcohol misuse services in order to help people with these problems.
I have also had experience in working with athletes, from helping people to get more out of their sport by conquering performance fears to steroid users who wish to decrease or to stop using these artificial enhancements.
Cognitive behaviour therapy helps people explore their assumptions about themselves, others, and their world, in order to regain a balanced perspective and a rational viewpoint. I gain enormous satisfaction from helping people to regain full mastery and pleasure from their lives.
