<a href=EDWARD BBIRA" />
PSYCHOTHERAPIST, ART THERAPIST. IAPT CBT & SYSTEMIC FAMILY PRACTICE TRAINED

Profile

 About me: 

My approach as a therapist is to work collaboratively with you, seeking to understand, to explore and reflect on whatever is difficult in your life. I bring warmth and openness to my work with very different clients. Deciding to engage in therapy can be a challenging but very rewarding process, undertaken for many different reasons, and I respect the courage it takes to talk about what is painful.

I have over 10 years’ experience working as a therapist working with a range of client groups in the National Health Service (NHS), schools, adult forensics, adoption and youth offending services. I am experienced in carrying out assessments and delivering short-term and long-term support in key evidence based modalities; Art Psychotherapy, Systemic Family Practice, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Parent Training, Children Accelerated Trauma Treatment (CATT), and clinical supervision. I offer individual, family, group sessions, face-to-face and online. Last year over 89% of my clients reported progress and reliable change in their goals for therapy using the Goal Based Outcomes Monitoring form (GBOM)   

 

I provide support in the following modalities:

● Art Psychotherapy

● Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
