Professional Profile

My name is Janet and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist working with Think CBT from my consulting rooms in Grimsby (DN33).

I also provide online Cognitive Behavioural therapy using Zoom or WhatsApp video calls.

I originally trained as a couple’s therapist, whilst at the same time studying and gaining a master’s degree in counselling at the university of Hull. During this time, I was also working within the NHS as a Psychological therapist.

This was followed with further training at the university of Derby where I gained a post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy.

Since then, I have further trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) Cognitive Behavioural analysis system of psychotherapy (CBASP) Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) mindfulness, couples therapy for Depression and providing supervision to CBT therapists in training.

I worked within the NHS for 24 years formerly as a psychological therapist, then as a Cognitive Behavioural psychotherapist and clinical lead. I worked with a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, panic, bulimia / binge eating, health anxiety, cbsessional compulsive disorder (OCD), bereavement / loss, post traumatic stress disorder/trauma (PTSD), specific phobias, relationship issues, low self- esteem, and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD).

Through my work I have seen individuals adapt to a different way of being, recognising the role of thoughts, behaviours, and emotions within their sometimes very troubled lives. I aim to work collaboratively with a client helping them reach their (mutually identified) goals, whilst maintaining a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship which I believe is the mainstay of successful psychotherapy.

I am a fully accredited member of the British association of ‘Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy’ (BABCP). I work to the BABCP’s code of professional practice and ethical standards within my clinical work.
