Amanda is a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Practitioner with 12 years experience.
As an Occupational Therapist and a CBT Practitioner, I have significant experience of working with individuals with a variety of conditions both from within the NHS and from my own private practice.
I work with individuals who have specific problems and who are seeking to change their negative thinking patterns, feelings and associated behaviours to enable them to deal differently with future situations.
CBT is a brief psychotherapy and I normally see clients for between 8 and 20 sessions. The aim of my sessions is to teach clients skills and strategies and provide them with the tools to become their own therapist. I work with clients with a variety of disorders including depression, panic disorder, social anxiety, body dymorphic disorder, self esteem issues, worry, OCD, phobias, PTSD, eating disorders and perfectionism.
CBT has a strong evidence base and is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) for depression and anxiety disorders.
