I have worked within the mental health field for more than 15 years; working in the statutory, voluntary and private sectors. I have a broad range of experience in complex mental health, substance use, mood disorder, eating issues and issues related to life adjustment and relational issues. I undertook initial training in a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy & Counseling. I followed this with extensive further training in CBT. Throughout my work as a CBT practitioner I have acquired a broad and varied experience, starting my career working in drug and alcohol rehabilitation units, delivering substance misuse groups and one to one sessions. I have also worked with complex needs and delivered CBT for psychosis in group and one to one sessions, conducted staff training in motivational interviewing, substance misuse and CBT.
