Professional Profile

My name is Susana Oppey and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Psychotherapist, working with Think CBT in Maidstone, Kent.

I have successfully worked as a CBT Psychotherapist for nearly four years post qualifying within an IAPT service in London. I currently work part-time (20 hours a week) for an IAPT service and then work in my private practice for the rest of the time. I have experience in working with a range of anxiety disorders using evidence-based interventions. I have special interest in treating depression and trauma related difficulties.

I have successfully completed the Post Graduate Diploma in CBT (High Intensity training). I have experience in working at step 3 within an IAPT service providing evidence-based CBT interventions with good outcomes.

My background is in mental health nursing. I have a wide experience as a mental health nurse. I have successfully worked as a mental health nurse starting off as a Staff Nurse on an in-patient Forensic Ward. After about two years I had the opportunity to work as a Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN) within a secondary mental health service where I successfully held this post for about 5 years. During my work as a CPN, I have mostly been working with complex mental health problems, supporting patients through their recovery journey. I had the opportunity to do a master’s programme in psychosocial interventions. After the successful completion of my master’s degree in Advanced Practice (Mental Health Nursing), I developed further interest in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) having been inspired by the positive outcomes in practice.
