I am an accredited Cognitive Analytic Therapist based in Milton Keynes offering Cognitive Analytic Therapy at Naturality Wellness Centre in Berkhamsted.
I also offer online appointments via Zoom.
I have thirty years’ experience of working therapeutically in mental health. I have experience of delivering evidence-based psychological interventions within GP surgeries, and across a range of NHS mental health services, including specialist eating disorder services.
Alongside my private practice, I continue to work as a therapist within an NHS eating disorder service offering both Cognitive Analytic Therapy and other evidence-based treatment approaches. I also have experience of running therapy groups and facilitating training.
I originally trained as an Occupational Therapist, and as well as being an accredited Cognitive Analytic Therapist and registered with the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT), I am also registered as an Occupational Therapist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
In addition to my training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Occupational Therapy, I have completed numerous other psychological trainings over the last thirty years. This has included four years training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy, a Diploma in Counselling, Psychodynamic training and training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E/CBT-T).
Within my current NHS role, I specialise in eating disorders; however, I have previously worked across a range of mental health services and teams, and I have experience of working with clients presenting with a range of different problems including anxiety, low mood, post-natal depression, stress related to study or employment, difficulties with relationships and low self-esteem.
I am passionate and enthusiastic about my work as a therapist, and it is both a pleasure and a privilege to be in a position where I can support others personal growth and development.
