Colchester, CO1

Professional Profile

My name is Birgit and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist working with Think CBT from my consulting rooms in Colchester, Essex (CO1)

I offer individualised psychological interventions, now also online via platforms such as Zoom, VSee, Facetime or Skype.

I offer evidence based interventions for Depression and Anxiety, such as Panic / Agoraphobia, Specific Phobias, Social Phobia, Health Anxiety, OCD and Generalised Anxiety Disorder. I also offer psychological therapy for Personality Disorders, Trauma, PTSD, Work-related Stress, Grief / Loss and Relationship Problems.

I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner and currently working towards certification in Schema Therapy. My specialist interest is complex trauma and PTSD, having been involved in managing the trauma pathway in my senior role within a secondary mental health service in the NHS previously. Starting with my psychology degree in 2002, I now have many years of experience working with a variety of people, from all walks of life and have worked in different settings such as NHS, University and third sector. In addition to my clinical practice, I am a guest lecturer at the University of Essex and I am also working as a supervisor for Mental Health Co-ordinators in Social Care and for CBT Therapists in Private Practice.

My understanding is that the choice of therapists is a very important and personal one and it is paramount for your recovery to feel that you are able to talk openly about your thoughts and problems. I will be using my experience to guide you and we will explore what therapeutic approach may be most appropriate to achieve your therapy goals and work towards them together. We will regularly review our therapeutic work to make sure that I am as helpful to you as possible.
