Cognitive Behavioural Therapist
Mondays 17:30 - 20:00 Tuesdays 17:30 - 20:00 Wednesdays 17:30-20:00
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 currently work as a Psychological Therapist for East London NHS Trust, where I work collaboratively with adults aged 18 and over who have long-standing, complex mental health needs. I also provide supervision for Clinical Psychologist trainees.
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.
Over the last few years, I have specialised in working with people suffering from different long-term physical health conditions that were also impacting their mental health. Previous to that, I worked as an addiction counsellor and mental health crisis practitioner. All these experiences have provided me with the ability to work flexibly and to draw elements from different approaches to address individual needs.
My areas of interest are anxiety based disorders, addiction, trauma, emotional disregulation and long term 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.
