Anna Gaffney Jones
I am an experienced therapist accredited by the BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies) and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I currently work for the NHS and in private practice offering a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approach for depression, anxiety disorders such as panic, social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, impulse disorders and post traumatic stress disorder. Based in Balham/Tooting, I offer an assessment of your psychological difficulties with an individually based formulation and treatment plan. I believe it is important to establish a secure relationship with clients drawing on my qualifications in Person Centred and Existential Psychotherapy to help you create change in your patterns of thinking and behaving and acceptance of your emotions.
Training, qualifications & experience
My initial training both at City University and Regents College was in Person Centred and Existential Counselling and Psychotherapy and more recently I have completed a PGDip in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Royal Holloway University. My experience is wide-ranging and eclectic with specific expertise in the managment of Depression and Anxiety. So from an Existential perspective your problems might relate to a lack meaning or purpose in your life. However, using CBT techniques I will be able to focus on how negative thoughts and unhelpful behaviours impact on your feelings both physically and emotionally. Using these and other skills I can help you overcome the difficulties in your life.
I have also completed training in Behavioural Couples Therapy and can work with you and your partner when you are having difficulties in your relationship.
