Hello, I am Tai, I am a mental health nurse by background but I am also a trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist accredited through the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), as well as an independent non-medical prescriber. I also work as an Associate Lecturer on the low level Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Programmes at Northumbria University.
I have experience working with adults, as well as children and young people (CYP). I currently work in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) within the National Health Service (NHS). I have experience using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to work on mental health difficulties, such as:
- Generalised Anxiety Disoorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Panic Disorder
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
- Separation Anxiety
- Social Anxiety Disorder
- Low self-esteem
I also have experience working with children and young people who have comorbid neurodevelopmental difficulties such as Autism Spectrum Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. In sessions, I significantly focus on recovery, helping people to ‘become their own therapist’ and overcome their difficulties independently following sessions coming to an end.
I am aware of the issues that COVID 19 has had on the majority of people, I am therefore open to new ways of working, such as video or telephone appointments where appropriate and possible.
Thank you for taking time to read my bio and I very much look forward to working with you in the future.
I currently offer face to face appointments at Durham Therapy Centre on Monday or Tuesday evenings. I am happy to be flexible with video or telephone appointment dates and times.
