Working Systemically with Families
I have spent over 24 years working in the NHS as a Registered Mental Health Nurse working as a staff nurse in acute adult psychiatry, a community psychiatric nurse and perinatal community psychiatric nurse working within the community, primary care and clinic based settings. From 2014 I have worked as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist providing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). This has involved working with a wide range of patients struggling with mental health difficulties which include, panic, phobias, depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder,depression, post natal depression and low self esteem. I have experience in supervising junior colleagues and occasionally teach in addition to my clinical work.
“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.
“Beverley really helped me through a difficult time in my pregnancy when I was suffering from severe anxiety and OCD. She was always kind, supportive and knowledgeable and gave me many techniques to help deal with things better. I would definitely recommend her to anyone else struggling with these issues.“
Beverly has completely changed my life. I feel like I have gained control over my anxiety and she has taught me so much. She is so understanding and so easy to open up to. I really appreciate all the help she has given me.
Thank you so much. I am so truly grateful for all your help.
We just wanted to say how very grateful we are for everything you have done for E.
The transformation from where she was in April to where she is now is nothing short of miraculous.
You have helped to give us our daughter back.
Starting at university was always going to be challenging for her but the pandemic made it doubly so. However, she has thrown herself into it and although she is very limited in terms of what she is allowed to do and who she is allowed to meet, she is doing really well.
She told us this week about someone she knows possibly leaving and doing everything from home for the rest of the term but she was adamant that she wanted to stay even if she was given the option of finishing the term at home. We couldn’t be prouder of her.
She had her matriculation ceremony online today but she and a number of new friends put on their formal gear and made the most of it.
Beverley helped me through therapy to improve my low self esteem and confidence issues. She taught me how to analyse situations and was always very approachable and ready to listen to what I was trying to say. I now feel so much better about myself and its all thanks to Beverley”.
