CBT Therapist ( Adults)
Therapies I Provide:
For most of my working life I was a history teacher in North London, however with retirement approaching I trained as a counsellor in 1990.
My initial training was in Integrative counselling but in 1997 I started training in CBT as I found that the collaborative approach which CBT fosters suited me better, given my background in teaching.
In CBT we are teaching the client to become their own therapist.
Throughout my career I have enjoyed running various training courses for counsellors on CBT and am committed towards my own ongoing professional development.
I moved from London to Norfolk in 2001 and I completed the Post Graduate Diploma course in CBT at UEA. I started working in private practice in 2003 while at the same time doing voluntary counselling for various organisations in Norwich. I became accredited with both the BACP and the BABCP the regulatory bodies for Counsellors and CBT Therapists.
From 2007 I have concentrated my voluntary work at the St Barnabas Counselling Centre in Derby St where I see clients one day a week. In 2014 I decided to move my private practice to Beccles where I now work at the Saxon Alternative Therapy Centre in New Market for one day a week, on a Monday.
