Hello, I'm Jamie. I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBP), a BACP accredited Integrative Counsellor and an accredited Clinical Supervisor. I work with individuals and offer a warm, friendly and supportive atmosphere, in order to promote development and change.
I work primarily as a CBP and work within the Ethical Frameworks of the BACP and BABCP. Although CBT is a recommended therapy for people suffering from depression and/or anxiety, I also tailor my approach to suit your needs. I also use my integrative training to provide Person-Centred/Psychodynamic counselling, and can work to both short and longer term time-frames - I am happy to discuss your options.
Qualifications and Memberships
It is important you choose a therapist who is both appropriately qualified and who is accountable to a professional body. I hold a Bs/c degree in Psychology, an MA in Integrative Counselling, and a Post Graduate Diploma in CBT. I am currently studying at City, University of London in order to become a Counselling Psychologist.
I hold Full Accreditation as a CBT Therapist with the BABCP; I am listed on BABCP's official register of CBT therapists - http://www.cbtregisteruk.com/Default.aspx
I am also an Accredited Registered Member of the BACP - http://www.bacpregister.org.uk/check_register/
I work hard to ensure my therapeutic knowledge is up to date by attending CPD events and have regular supervision. My CRB check is also kept up to date.
I have many years' experience working with children, adolescents and adults, and currently work with adults from a range of backgrounds. I continue to work with people suffering from a vast range of difficulties. As well as running a private practice, I also work as a therapist for the mental health charity Mind, and have done for over ten years.
