Jane Chugg-White MBACP (Accred) BABCP (Accred)
I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, and additionally trained in EMDR, (Eye Movement Desensitzation Reprocessing), DBT, (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy), and Humanistic Integrative Counselling.
I have over 20 years experience of working with individuals with mental health related problems. I am highly committed to this work.
A brief outline of each therapy I am able to offer is as follows:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a highly effective treatment for Depression and Anxiety related issues and is recommended by the NHS in their guidelines as an evidence based effective treatment for such issues. It is particularly effective for treating Depression, Panic Attacks, Agoraphobia, Social Phobia, General Phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Health Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Low Self Esteem, Chronic Fatigue, Bulimia Nervosa. (This is not an exhaustive list of the problems that CBT is effective for).
Eye Movement De-sensitizaton Reprocessing (EMDR) is a specialist treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, although it can also be used for some anxiety related issues and in the treatment of phobias. It is recommended by the NHS in their guidelines as an evidence based effective treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy was originally devised as a treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder. It is an extremely effective approach for individuals who struggle to find coping strategies or resources to manage extreme distress, and may therefore resort to self harming, or extreme risk taking behaviour.
Stage One of DBT informed treatment focusses on helping individuals to develop coping strategies and resources for managing distress.
Stage Two addresses the underlying causes of distress.
Stage Three helps the individual to begin to re invest energy into creating a meaningful life for themselves.
Humanistic Integrative Counselling is an approach that is primarily based in the theory that every person contains the means to reach their full potential, and to become their true selves. Humanistic Therapy involves the client and therapist working alongside each other to discover what may be blocking/preventing the individual from reaching their full potential.
I am accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists, and an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
