About me

Hi, My name's Bernadette,

I am here
To show you ...
To help you...
To encourage you NOT to give up.
There are bigger and better things destined for you.
Your life now, does not define who you are, or who you are going to be.

With Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) you can learn practical tools to help you with your difficulties, now and in the future. CBT is heavily researched. It produces results. It's recommended by NICE guidelines. It is proven to help you feel better more quickly than other methods of talking therapies.  I can help you to understand what has caused your difficulties, why now? and explore what things require change. I can teach you the skills you need to help you meet your goals. 

I am a Senior CBT Therapist and Supervisor, accredited by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) which means you can be reassured you are receiving the best treatment as I am working to the highest standards.

Seeking the right therapist is not easy and can cause anxiety, fear, overwhelm. If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them. Please send me an email, or we can arrange a telephone call. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have 20+ years experience of working in mental health, in both NHS and private practice. I am a fully qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) working with children and young people as well as adults.

I offer you a confidential space for you to talk about your difficulties and concerns and to really feel listened to. 

I am also a BABCP accredited supervisor providing clinical supervision and support to other therapists and trainees.

My formal qualifications are listed below:

  • BSc Hons Psychology
  • PGDip Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy Children & Adults
