Professional Profile

My name is Vanesa, I am a fully qualified and BABCP-accredited CBT therapist working with Think CBT from London, SE8.

I'm also qualified as a CBT therapist in the context of long term health conditions and as an addiction counsellor (FDAP accredited training). I offer sessions both in English and Spanish.

I have several years of expeience working in different NHS settings providing psychological support for people struggling with anxiety, depression, OCD, mood disregulation, self-harm, trauma and PTSD (including medical trauma)... I also have experience working with people who have challenging health conditions (in particular diabetes) and need suppot managing the mental distress related to the life adaptations that are needed to manage those conditions.

I offer a confidential, compassionate, safe space where I support others understanding how our life experiences shape the beliefs and behaviours linked to our mental wellbeing, and to the way we feel and relate to each other. I then use my training and experience to tailor strategies for each individual, in order to help that person work towards his/her goals for personal change, growth and self-development.

I believe that, as human beings, we are all unique in the way we experience the world around us. This also makes us unique in our needs. Therefore, I have choosen to practice in an integrative way, as it provides me with the flexibly to draw elements from my different trainings in order to address individual needs.

My areas of interest are anxiety based disorders, addiction, trauma, emotional disregulation and long term health conditions.

I am currently offering online therapy. I abide by the policies and ethical standards laid down by the BABCP and I have full professional indemnity to work as a therapist in the UK.
