About us

Finding your CBT therapist can be a daunting task, but knowing if they have the correct credentials is harder. Efficacy ensures people get better. As the Director of Clinical and Business Operation of Efficacy's national team of BABCP accredited cognitive behavioural therapists (the gold standard to practice CBT in the UK), I ensure that everyone is getting evidence-based therapy. Our CBT therapists are mental health professionals with an additional Post-Graduate degree specifically in CBT.

Accredited as a BABCP practitioner, trainer and supervisor, I understand how to help people achieve their therapy goals in the broadest context.

These are some of the mental health issues we can help: anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, relationship issues, depression, feeling sad and panic disorder.

See below for more.

We ensure that every person has an opportunity to access disorder-specific formulation cognitive behavioural therapy, rather than tools and techniques to 'tick' a CBT box. All our therapists are accredited, and I ensure they continually meet the rigorous standards to maintain yearly re-accreditation as a CBT therapist.

Our Client Liaison Team are here to answer all your questions and to find out if CBT is right for you or book with a therapist. All calls are obligation free, and the team are here to help with first steps to getting better. Our success is your success stories, so we are more than happy to take a call now to find the best way forward.
