My name is Jacky and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist working with Think CBT from my consulting rooms in Lewes.
I provide online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy using ZOOM.
I think of therapy as resource building, with me working alongside you to help you learn more skilful ways of responding to your difficulties, possibly different ways of thinking and behaving or maybe relating differently to your thoughts. I have experience of working with children, teenagers and adults and originally worked for over a decade as a High School teacher so have lots of experience of working with teenagers.
I’m a warm, friendly clinician skilled at quickly building a supportive therapeutic relationship. Years ago I had therapy myself and I know how vulnerable and alone I felt at the time. Working weekly with someone who was alongside me enabled me to make changes that improved my life. So I never forget what it’s like to sit in the client seat, how hard it can be to lay one’s life out in front of another human being. Clients often tell me ‘it’s as though you are inside my head’. I believe that this is down to the fact that I too have experienced difficulties so I know how it feels from the inside. This ability to relate to many of my client’s issues has enabled me to more accurately pinpoint areas we may need to work on or challenges we may need to overcome. Please note that I do not work with OCD.
I have a practical, down to earth approach to therapy. I try to ensure that clients who work with me leave with a whole backpack of tools that will equip them to carry on their journey through life just that bit more easily. Sometimes we don’t learn this stuff- how to live well- as children and so in many ways therapy can be thought of as filling in those gaps.
I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) which is considered the gold standard in the practice of CBT. I work to the BABCP’s code of professional practice and ethical standards for clinical work as well as to the BACP’s professional practice code and ethical standards framework.
