My Experience and Qualifications
I have over 20 years experience providing psychological and behavioural interventions , in a range of contexts, including voluntary, statutory, NHS and Higher Educational settings as a NHS CBT trainer/supervisor and private practice. I trained as an integrative therapist back in 2000, which draws on a variety of approaches and worked towards becoming a registered Counselling Psychologist with BPS membership. I have worked in a primary care mental health service for 10 years, where I trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, working in GP practices all over Norfolk. Having completed my EMDR training with EMDR Europe, this is now a specialist area for me, as (early) traumatic events can often lay the foundation for psychological distress. I hold an enhanced DBS, indemnity insurance and abide by the BPS and BABCP code of ethics.
