What my clients say
My core profession is in mental health nursing where I have about eight years post registration experience. During this time, I have successfully worked as a Registered Mental Health Nurse, starting as a Staff Nurse on an in- patient ward. After about two years I had the opportunity to work as a Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN) within a secondary mental health service where I successfully held this post for about six years. During this time, I used CBT principles and interventions in my work with patients. I managed my own caseload which was a mixed caseload comprising patients suffering from common mental health problems and others with severe and enduring mental health problems. I noticed that working in a structured way with my patients helped them make progress through their recovery journey with good outcomes. I also had the opportunity to do a Master’s programme in Psychosocial Interventions (MSc in Advanced Practice Mental Health Nursing). After the successful completion of my Master’s degree, I developed further interest in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) having been inspired by its positive outcomes in my practice.
I had the opportunity to successfully complete a formal and accredited Post-Graduate Diploma in CBT (High Intensity training). I currently work in an IAPT service providing evidence-based CBT interventions both face to face and online therapy. I have a good experience in treating the full range of anxiety disorders and depression. I am developing my specialist area in CBT for Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
