My name is Marina and I am a fully qualified and BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, with additional post-graduate and specialist training in clinical psychology, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). My regular CBT weekly clinics are in Bath, BA2.
My first post-qualification post was for Turning Point working in Substance Abuse. I then worked in the NHS for 7 years in primary, secondary and crisis care, where I gained extensive experience of a wide range of psychological, emotional and behavioural problems. I have run my private practice for 8 years and established a good reputation as an experienced and effective psychotherapist.
I have a particular interest in anxiety disorders and work integratively, bringing together a number of evidence based psychological interventions to support rapid and sustained recovery for my clients.
I have a friendly and informal approach to therapy, focusing on the needs of my clients and building a strong and trusted therapeutic relationship, where my clients feel safe, understood and supported.
