Hello. I am Tracey Patrick and I work as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist in York, Wetherby and Leeds. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of depression and many types of anxiety. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) which is recommended for the treatment of many anxiety disorders including PTSD.
CBT enables me to work with people in a way that helps them understand their difficulties and develop practical skills to enhance their wellbeing. It is a ‘common-sense’ approach and is based on scientific evaluation and is effective in working with:
- panic and agoraphobia
- social anxiety
- post traumatic stress disorder
- obsessive compulsive disorder
- generalised anxiety (also known as worry)
- health anxiety
- sleep difficulties
- low self esteem
- work related stress
- body image difficultes
Working together we will explore the relationship between your thoughts, emotions and behaviours. This will enable us to have a shared understanding of how the difficulty is being maintained. As we progress through therapy you will develop a range of strategies to help you overcome the problem and feel more in control of daily life. We will enable you to be your own therapist.
I have full accreditation with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP). Accreditation means that I have had comprehensive post graduate training in CBT and involves me demonstrating my competency to the highest standard. This competency is regularly monitored and ensures that I keep up to date with evidence based research and the application of skills and techniques.
Accreditation is important. Even if you choose not to use my service please ensure that your CBT therapist is accredited with the BABCP.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have extensive experience of working with people who experience psychological distress.
My interest in mental health began in 2000 when I completed my BHSc (Hons) in Occupational Therapy from The College of Ripon and York St John. For 14 years I worked as as an OT in acute psychiatric hospitals; in community mental health teams and in secure units.
I completed my Post Graduate Diploma in High Intensity Psychological Therapies at the University of York in 2011. Since then I have worked as a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist for the NHS and within the private sector.
I am a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with special interests in Mindfulness and Compassion Focussed Therapy.

In terms of fees you will find that there is a going rate and we are competitively priced. Fees are normally discussed during a telephone consultation and can be paid session by session or in advance. All ongoing sessions last 50 minutes.
Hours of work – I am flexible with session times and offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments. Generally on a Wednesday I will be in York; on a Thursday I will be in Wetherby and on a Friday I work in Leeds.
If you are unsure or have any queries then please call or email as I want you to benefit from this service. If I can’t help you I will know someone who can.
Give me a call or email me and we will arrange short telephone consultation which will help us establish if CBT is going to be helpful for you. If we think CBT will be helpful then we will arrange an assessment which will last 60 minutes. From this we will develop a good understanding of the problem; think about some goals for therapy and how we might start achieving those goals.
I am co-founder of MoodWise and work with my colleague, Clare Beavan. We have rooms in Wetherby, York, Leeds and Harrogate. Please click on our website link for further information.
