Janice de Souza, B.A.
CBT Therapist (BABCP accredited)
*COVID-19 virus provision*
In order to comply with the ‘social distancing’ required in the current climate, I am unable to offer face-to-face sessions until further notice. However, I am happy to provide telephone sessions where appropriate. My contact details remain the same, apart from post to the Centre, which is closed for the time being.
CBT, cognitive behavioural therapy, is evidence-based treatment which helps identify the strategies and thinking underlying people’s difficulties, helping them discover how to reduce the impact and cope better.
A specialist with 25 years’ experience of both NHS and independent practice, I treat a wide range of conditions (see Problems treated).
Originally, my degree led me into psychiatric nursing and almost immediately, from there into psychotherapy. I trained in the psychodynamic field, initially and then re-trained in CBT at Oxford University in 1995; becoming accredited with the BABCP in 1996. I have been in clinical practice for most of the intervening years; also teaching and supervising multi-disciplinary NHS staff, (trainee psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, and independent practitioners) and in the voluntary sector. More recently, I supervised the clinical practice of post-graduate university trainees in CBT and I continue to supervise independent practitioners.
