    About Blue Therapy Clinic

     
    I trained as an Occupational Therapist after gaining an interest in the recovery of individuals following life changing events.

    My positions as an Occupational Therapist (O.T) within the NHS, led me to experience a variety of settings where I facilitated re-enablement of individuals, encouraging them to regain occupation using activity as the treatment tool, to assist them to maintain or adapt to changes in their functioning following illness.

    My special interest in promotion of positive mental health led me to work within various positions as a Senior OT, working with both common psychological problem areas as well as enduring mental ill health, with clients from an adolescent to elderly age range.

    I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy as the main treatment of choice when assisting recovery of mental ill health and also hold a certificate in Postgraduate Professional Development to supervise other CBT practitioners.

    I am accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists which oversees the supervised practice and delivery of CBT.

    I am also a member of the professional body, Health and Care Professions Council, who are oversee my ability to practice as an Occupational Therapist.

    With 10 years of professional experience as a therapist, my passion for promoting recovery remains active as I thrive on guiding clients to help themselves minimise distress and work towards recovery.

    -

    I have worked in the mental health field since 1998 and I initially qualified as a registered mental health nurse (RMN) and worked both in a ward setting for the NHS in St George’s Park Hospital in Northumberland and then in the local community for several years, where my interest in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) first developed.

    I returned to Newcastle University to study high intensity psychological therapies (PGDip) as part of the drive to improve access to psychological therapies (IAPT) and have been working as a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist since.

    I have worked both in primary and secondary care settings to promote positive mental health using a CBT approach for many years. I am as passionate about guiding people towards recovery as I have ever been and will endeavour to cultivate and nurture my professional development regime to ensure the best possible outcome for my clients.

    In addition to providing face to face therapy I also run group seminars that focus on both preventative and curative therapeutic approaches. These groups help provide individuals with the CBT skills and techniques they require to return to work from sick leave or function more effectively in their role. I have lectured on graduate and post graduate courses and I am fully qualified to supervise trainee therapists.

    I am accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
