Cognitive Behavioural Therapist
St. Albans AL1
My name is Effie, I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited CBT therapist working with Think CBT online from St. Albans.
I have 17 years of experience working in the mental health field both in the UK as well as in Greece and throughout this time I have worked in primary, secondary and tertiary care. I acquired extensive experience as a High Intensity therapist in an NHS London based IAPT service providing one to one and group Cognitive Behavioural therapy, as well as offering clinical supervision to other CBT practitioners. The past 3 years, I have been focusing on developing my private therapy practice offering online therapy support to people experiencing difficulties with anxiety and low mood.
An area of particular interest for me is offering support to parents who may struggle during the perinatal period. Having a baby is exciting but can also be a challenging time for many parents who may experience worry, anxiety or symptoms of post-natal depression while going through this major transition in their lives. Although this can feel like a lonely experience that may seem difficult to manage at the time, therapy can provide a safe space to explore these emotions and offer additional tools and coping techniques to help make the adjustment easier.
Many people may feel daunted by the process of seeking support for their difficulties because therapy involves sharing difficult emotions with the aim of challenging sometimes strongly held beliefs and behaviour patterns. Developing a trusting therapeutic relationship that best enables clients to achieve this, through offering a professional, safe and non-judgmental space is of vital importance for me. I feel grateful for the opportunity clients give me to share this journey with them towards reaching their goals in life.
I abide by the policies and ethical standards laid down by the BABCP and I have full professional indemnity to work as a therapist in the UK.
