A lifetime of interest in human emotional, psychological and mental well being...
"a natural psychologist"
As far back as I can remember, I have always been interested in the emotional, psychological and mental well being of human beings. My understanding and empathy initially developed quite intuitively and was often recognised and commented on by other people.
To pursue this deep interest over the last 20 + years I have achieved professional qualifications in advanced cognitive behavioural therapy (PG Dip) and occupational therapy (BSc Hons), successfully studied degree level psychology modules with the Open University, life coaching modules amongst many others. I am also professionally accredited by the BABCP (British Association of Behavioural and Psychological Therapies).
My career has led me to work in a variety of settings in the NHS and privately in both secondary care (moderate to severe and enduring mental health) and primary care (mild to moderate mental health).
As I CBT psychotherapist I provide advanced CBT for adults with depression and anxiety disorders such as generalised anxiety, phobias, panic disorder, PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), health anxiety, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorders) amongst others.
In recent years I achieved my life goal of running my own private CBT practice in Allendale Town, in Northumberland in the UK. I provide high quality CBT for private and corporate clients all over the world.
