My name is Sally and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist working with Think CBT from my consulting rooms in Torquay.
I am also a Registered Mental Health Nurse; I trained as a nurse at Kings College, London and did my CBT accreditation at Buckinghamshire University. I also have a BSc in Psychology from Loughborough University and an MSc in Psychotherapeutic Approaches in mental health.
Additionally, I have completed an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamics and an introductory qualification in Group Analysis.
I have 15 years experience working in mental health settings as a qualified nurse, in acute and secure psychiatric settings. 10 years of this was working delivering psychological therapies (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Mentalisation Based Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy).
I have worked in various different voluntary capacities including for MIND and homelessness charities. I have experience working with individuals with personality difficulties, Anxiety, Psychosis, Depression, Trauma and shame-based difficulties. I use an eclectic approach responding to the needs of the individual and enjoy using creativity to help individuals gain insight and in aiding self-discovery.
