I trained as a CBT therapist, because I saw how effective CBT was in helping people with a wide variety of emotional difficulties. I found that many of the things I learned in my training were also useful in my own life, helping me deal more productively with life's ups and downs.
I qualified in 2012 with a post graduate diploma in CBT and have been accredited with the BABCP since January 2014. I am a registered mental health nurse and nurse teacher of many years' experience and have a degree in psychology and a PhD in education. I have held several senior academic roles in universities.
I am currently working towards accreditation as an EMDR therapist and have successfully completed Parts 1 and 2 of the training.
