My name is Collette and I am a highly qualified and experienced BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist specialising in work with adults. I hold regular CBT appointments in London in the W1B and EC1A areas. My extensive experience of working in Clinical Social Work for over 20 years, in various community and hospital settings and with various mental health presentations, has contributed to a holistic assessment and approach when working with individuals rather then focusing on the medical nature of the individual’s symptoms and problems. Prior to this, I practised as a Social Worker/Counsellor in South Africa for 4 years before moving to Berlin, where I assisted in research projects undertaken by the Berlin Psychological Institute.
During and following my professional training, I worked within a large NHS Staff Counselling Service where my role comprised of assessing and providing therapy to various NHS staff members exhibiting a variety of anxiety disorders, depression, work related stress and self-esteem difficulties. Thereafter, I joined and worked within a well-reputed, national and independent Cognitive Behavioural Therapy practice where I provided individual psychotherapy to self-referring clients whom presented with a wide and diverse range of mental health presentations such as Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, addictions, low self-esteem, sexual difficulties and relationship problems.
My approach is collaborative, empathic, warm, informal and relaxed, which allows for a safe and comfortable space to allow you to explore your thoughts, feelings and unhelpful behaviours without judgement. Through the use of numerous specialist and transferable skills and knowledge, I am committed to providing an individualised, high quality therapeutic experience based on best practice and prioritisation of you and your needs.
