I am a qualified Cognitive Behaviour Therapist: I qualified from Oxford University with a full Diploma, completed in 2016. The Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre is the world leader in research and teaching in CBT and incorporates Mindfulness and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
I have a degree with honours in Psychology, and I am a member of the British Psychological Society.
I’m a fully qualified Re-Evaluation Counselor, and have completed training in attachment theory in adults and an 18 month training in supervision (Brighton University).
I am currently working part time for CAMHS in Halifax as a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist.
CBT has a large evidence base proving its particular effectiveness with young people and I work with teenagers who experience difficulties in their relationships in the home, or where they are struggling with anxiety, school refusal or ‘challenging behaviour’ at school, depression, self-harm, disordered eating, anger management, drug use and other related issues.I particularly enjoy working with young people, and they often respond quickly to CBT strategies and are able to make changes in how they behave, think and feel in a relatively short amount of time.
In my work with adults I have specialist experience of working with people struggling with self-medication using alcohol or non -prescription drugs.
It remains extremely interesting to me to help people explore their assumptions about themselves, others, and their world, in order to regain a balanced perspective and a rational viewpoint and I have gained enormous satisfaction from helping young people and adults to regain full mastery and pleasure from their lives.
