About me

Claire has worked as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist since 2009, after achieving a BSc Psychology Degree (2.1) and MSc in Mental Health Nursing (Distinction). Her interest in CBT began during her nursing MSc and she decided to research the subject further. She focused her master’s dissertation on the efficacy of nurse-led computerised CBT and this led to her being selected as a mental health nurse to help set up one of the first IAPT/ CBT services in South Essex.
Claire spent 5 years working for the NHS ‘Therapy for You’ IAPT Service, and after this Claire worked at The Priory Hospital where she delivered individual outpatient CBT and inpatient group therapy.
She has also worked with adults and children as a private practitioner since 2012, with self-referrals and clients using private health care. Claire is recognised by most major providers, such as Bupa and Aviva. Claire has also worked for IESO Digital Health since 2015 providing NHS clients around the UK with online CBT.
Claire has worked with a range of different mental health difficulties – predominantly depression and anxiety disorders. She has a particular interest in OCD, Social Anxiety, Panic Disorders, PTSD/Trauma and Phobias. Claire enjoys working with clients of all ages and she has attended specialist child CBT workshops and paid for additional supervision to help her adapt CBT for children and adolescents.
In 2018 Claire completed a PTUK accredited, Post Graduate Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills. As part of her training she worked in a local primary and junior school delivering therapeutic play sessions to young children under supervision. This has allowed her to extend her services and work creatively with children aged 4-8 years.
