About me

Introduction

Welcome! My name is Eve McIntyre​ (BSc, PGCert, PGDip) I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with the BABCP, CBT Supervisor and EMDR Clinician. I have over 10 years of experience supporting individuals with their mental health including Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I am passionate about the therapeutic work I deliver and would be honoured to work alongside you.

I offer 1:1 CBT and EMDR Therapy to individuals aged 18 and over and CBT Supervision to CBT Therapists who are either currently completing or have completed their training. The weekly appointment can be delivered either remotely or in person from Taunton, Somerset. 

My Philosophy:

I am passionate about nurturing mental health. I recognise that when we experience emotional difficulties we need to feel heard, have a way of making sense of what we are feeling and gain a sense of hope for the future. I hope to offer you that. 

I have an adaptive style, I would aim to adapt the therapy to you so the support feels personalised. I will be alongside you at each stage of the therapy and go at your pace. Combining the knowledge you have of yourself with psychological theory that underpins CBT we will gain a shared understanding around what you are feeling and how we can bring about change. I will value and encourage your contributions and aim to empower you as we introduce techniques to meet your therapy goals.  I will strive to create a curious, safe, non-judgemental therapeutic space.​

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy or CBT is a form of psychotherapy. CBT is an evidence based psychological therapy recommended in NICE guidance as a first line approach for the treatment of Anxiety, Depression and PTSD. CBT uses a practical, experiential approach to develop alternative thinking patterns and behaviour to reduce feelings of Anxiety, Depression and PTSD. In my videos I explain CBT and how this may be useful to you.

What CBT Can Help With:

CBT can help you if you are experiencing difficulties with: Agoraphobia, Body Dysmorphia Disorder (BDD), Depression, Emetophobia, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Illness Anxiety, Loss and bereavement, Low Self-Esteem, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic, Perfectionism, Phobia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Rumination​, Social Anxiety, Stress, Tokophobia, Trauma, Trichotillomania. I am experienced in applying CBT to these areas and supporting individuals who are experiencing them, I would be able to help you if you are experiencing any of these difficulties.

​You may be unsure if CBT can help, how it may be able to help, you may also be unsure if I am the right fit for you. I would be happy to explore if CBT is right for you and answer any questions you may have. I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation. This will enable us to start to explore what you would like some support with, answer any questions you may have and to consider if we can work together. It is important that you are able to engage in a therapy and with a therapist that is the right fit for you. There would be no pressure for you to commit to further sessions following the free 20 minute consultation. To arrange a free 20 minute initial consultation please email directly or complete my contact form.

What you can Expect:

The following can be used as a guide for what you can expect from CBT. I am mindful that as individuals we can differ in what we feel able to share there is no expectation for you to share anything you do not feel comfortable to do so.  There may also be some variation in the pace of the sessions and more/ less time may be needed for particular stages of the therapy work we do together.  

Once we agree to begin working together we would then complete 1-2 assessment sessions. At the assessment stage the focus is around exploring themes and patterns connected to your problem. Specifically triggers, emotions, thoughts, feelings, behaviour. We would also explore the duration and the development of the problem.

Our initial therapy sessions will be used to develop your individual formulation. A formulation is designed to aid understanding around how your problem may have developed and what is keeping it going. The formulation will also be used to guide the therapy, we will explore the therapy goals you have and develop a therapy plan. I can provide information around the theory that underpins CBT and the evidence based strategies. In CBT there is a strong emphasis on experiential learning to promote cognitive and behavioural change which would be modelled in the session. Home practice would then be designed and completed to embed the learning. We would work collaboratively to implement the strategies, navigate any setbacks and celebrate the successes. 

The number of sessions required differs person to person, I would aim for us to agree this together based on your specific problem and needs. 

The weekly appointment would be delivered remotely, this will allow the therapy to be delivered in the comfort of your own home.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing or EMDR is often used to support individuals experiencing PTSD. It requires the individual to attune to memories linked to their trauma briefly whilst experiencing bilateral movement stimulation. Through this process the vividness and emotions associated with the trauma reduce. Alongside Trauma Focussed CBT, EMDR is a recommended therapy for PTSD in NICE Guidance. EMDR can also be used for other difficulties and is highly beneficial. 

I am delighted to be completing EMDR training with an EMDR Europe Accredited course from January 2024! I will be receiving regular supervision both throughout the training and upon completion. I am experienced in supporting individuals with their mental health including Depression, Anxiety, Trauma and PTSD as a CBT Therapist and the use of Trauma Focused CBT. Through my current experience and skills I would strive to create a safe and supportive space whilst we work together. If you would be interested in working together or would like to explore this, please don't hesitate to get in touch by completing my contact form or booking an Introductory Appointment via my website.

Training, qualifications & experience

I strive to deliver quality therapy and seek feedback, opportunities and learning in order to continue to grow and evolve. I have over 10 years experience assessing and treating psychological difficulties in the NHS. In addition to 5 years of academic study I have attended numerous CPD events and obtained further training to enhance my understanding, knowledge and skills.
