About me

My name is Janis Young and I am a qualified and experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist accredited with the British Association of Cognitive and and Behavioural Psychotherapy (BABCP). I have more than 16 years' experience working in private practice and in the NHS and have worked for Employee Assistance Programs and companies specialising in psychological trauma. I am a recognised provider with Aviva, a UK health insurance company.

I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and professional service for a range of emotional and psychological difficulties to help people improve their mental health using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Please visit my website for more information about what I can offer: www.janisyoungcbt.co.uk

I can offer help with:

  • Depression, low mood
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Phobias including agoraphobia
  • Stress
  • Sleep problems
  • Low self-esteem
  • Obsessive Compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Social anxiety and shyness
  • General anxiety disorder (Excessive Worry)
  • Health anxiety
  • Anger Management
  • Chronic pain and Pain management
  • Post Traumatic Disorder (PTSD)

It can be daunting to come for therapy for the first time and know what to expect. At your first session we will explore together your current difficulties and how CBT can help you. You can then decide if this is the right therapy for you. If you have any questions I am very happy to speak with you by phone or you can contact me by email. There is more about my practice on my website www.janisyoungcbt.co.uk

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Cognitive Approaches to Counselling & Psychotherapy from the University of London and have undertaken further training in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) with Bangor University gaining a Teacher Training Certificate.

I am a member and accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP).

I have experience of seeing clients in the NHS, employee assisted programs as well as from my private practice. As a Clinical Lead in the Improving Access to Psychotherapy (IAPT) in the NHS for over seven years, I provided training and supervision for CBT Therapists and ran a Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), an eight week course, for patients. Before the IAPT Service I provided CBT for patients within a number of GP practices in central Bedfordshire. I can also offer therapy using Skype.

I hold professional indemnity insurance which is renewed annually.
