About me

I'm Nancy, and I am an experienced accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Mindfulness Teacher. I have had 3 years training as a Counselling Psychologist and specialised in both Psychodynamic Psychotherapy training, DBT and specialist CBT approaches for personality disorder and psychosis. I take an interest in humanistic approaches to therapy. I believe that everyone deserves unconditional positive regard, empathy and to be listened to in an attentive way. I will offer a safe and comfortable space, where you will be allowed to explore your life time experiences, goals and dreams. I believe that everyone has resilience in order to move forward towards change.

I offer private face to face CBT and Humanistic Psychotherapy therapy sessions for adults (18+) who are experiencing distress. This could fall under depression, bereavement, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, specific phobias, social phobia and health anxiety. I have worked with people who have gone through a divorce, relationship breakdown or are still suffering over a bereavement.

I offer taster sessions in mindfulness, or the equivalent of an 8 week course for individuals or sets of 3 or 4 people. I could offer Skype sessions as an alternative approach.

I have had over ten years experience of working in the NHS in primary care services, and also had some experience in child and adolescent acute services. I have worked in an eating disorders service, an acute ward for people experiencing psychosis or bipolar disorder. I have run drop-in MBCT groups at MIND, and have co-facilitated MBCT groups in an NHS setting working alongside Clinical Psychologists and other CBT Therapists. I also taught an MBSR group for Healthcare Professionals and Therapists, and have undertaken my own emotional development through meditation

I sincerely believe that people have the courageousness to move forward in a way that is meaningful to them in therapy. I value connection, and that all people should be treated with the utmost respect, as a human being with human rights in the therapy space.
