Janice de Souza, B.A.
CBT Therapist (BABCP accredited)
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.
