Beverley Mongiello Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist
I completed my nurse training in 1997, and since then I have worked mainly in the NHS, with adults of all ages, including women during their pregnancy and up to 12 months after the birth of their baby (perinatal mental health). I have specialist experience working in CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service). Typically, I use a cognitive behavioural approach in treatment. I have worked with people from a wide range of backgrounds, and with a great variety of psychological difficulties. I have experience in the treatment of anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder & psychological trauma, including birth trauma. My experience working with children and adolescence has covered a range of mental health issues including, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma & phobia.
As a qualified mental health professional I use my experience to help people manage their day to day difficulties. My approach to treatment is compassionate, collaborative and evidence based which has allowed me to build good therapeutic relationships essential for effective therapy.

“Cognitive behavioral therapy with Beverley has definitely given me the skill set to really understand and keep my anxiety under control. In the time spent during the weeks of my therapy, I really learnt a lot about my self and my thinking/behavioral habits. CBT has been such a big part of my recovery from anxiety and depression; Beverly always made me feel at ease and I could really express how I was feeling without judgement during this time.”
“I came to Beverley when I was feeling in my lowest ever point in life and she helped me to understand the root cause of my problems and also taught me scientific methods to overcome the issues I suffered from all my life. She was always energetic, passionate and made me feel comfortable to open up about my deepest and darkest life challenges. With her support, I managed to make a massive progress in a relatively short span of time. I couldn’t have done it without her.”
I went to see Beverley for low self esteem , anxiety and depression last summer. I am so much better and stronger for seeing Beverley. I am able to be kinder to myself and have a stronger sense of self worth. My anxiety levels have also improved. I have learnt so much and know I will continue to grow from all Beverley has taught me. For me she has a way of knowing what I’m trying to say and just understanding the issue even if I was struggling to explain myself!. I am so glad I found her back in the summer and would highly recommend Beverley. She has simply been the best therapist I could have asked for.
