Sheffield, S6 4AE
My name is Mike and I am a fully qualified BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist working with ThinkCBT from my consulting rooms in Sheffield (S6).
I have been working as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) since 2012. I am currently based in Sheffield and have extensive experience in providing 1-1 CBT sessions through: face to face, telephone or online . I qualified as a CBT therapist in 2012 and working within both the NHS and also privately, I have gained extensive experience with a wide range of psychological, emotional and behavioural problems including: Psychosis, Bi-Polar Disorder, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Health Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder, Specific Phobias, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Social Anxiety, Low Self-Esteem problems and different types of Depression. These areas also remain my specialised areas of interest. I also have experience of supervising other CBT therapists, teaching CBT to others and running CBT informed groups.
I also have experience of effectively applying CBT in a variety of clinical settings and for a wide range of problems, including working within community mental health teams in Secondary Mental Health Care. This has been to different, age groups; ethnicities and cultures and also degrees of learning disabilities (including Asperger's syndrome).
I am a qualified Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing (EMDR) practitioner and I have additional training in EMDR, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), compassion focused therapy (CFT) dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and the cognitive behavioural analysis system of psychotherapy (CBASP).
This also means I am able to draw on a wide range of evidence based psychological techniques and to meet the specific needs of my clients.
I place a strong emphasis on a shared trusting alliance between myself and my clients. This is together with the use of judicious (well judged) humour and the importance of being ‘human’, down to earth and providing validation empathy and ‘warmth’ in my sessions.
During my sessions, I passionately believe in the importance of connecting with the clients’ I work in a person-centered, non-judgemental and empathic way. This is alongside providing a collaborative, focused and goal centered CBT approach. I also often draw on different (evidence based) approaches during my sessions. This is in order to ensure that the CBT therapy I provide is tailored uniquely to each individual. The main personal motivating force for me, during my practice, is to be the best therapist I can be. This is for each and every client that I work with.
