CBT Therapy, CAT Therapy, EMDR Therapy and Counselling

  • Depression including postnatal depression
  • Stress
  • Panic disorder

All of our CBT Therapists will have either a Diploma or Masters in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Many of our therapists will also have a core training in Social Work, Occupational Therapy, or be a Registered Mental Health Nurse. They will be accredited with the BABCP the lead regulatory organisation for CBT therapists in the UK. cbtregisteruk.com and have a minimum of 2 years post qualification experience.

Please see a podcast from the BABCP on what Is CBT.

EMDR Therapy

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) Therapy is a psychological treatment that has shown to be beneficial in treating psychological trauma arising from experiences such as road traffic accidents, workplace accidents, assault, childhood abuse or neglect, natural disaster and war related experiences. It is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and recent research also suggests benefits of using EMDR in treating anxiety disorders, complicated grief, depression, phobias and disturbing memories.

EMDR therapy is an eight phase treatment approach which includes completing a detailed assessment, processing of the difficult memories and facing current or future situations. During the memory processing aspects the EMDR therapist helps the client recall a disturbing event for a short while (e.g. 30 seconds) whilst simultaneously initiating bilateral stimulation that can consist of eye movements, tapping or sounds. This enables the reprocessing of traumatic memories, with successful treatment leading to memories becoming less intense and distressing and client’s psychological wellbeing significantly improving.

At Feel Well Therapy our EMDR Therapists will have completed training to level 3 or above in EMDR with a training provider verified by the EMDR Association of UK and Ireland and have a minimum of 2 years post qualification experience.  emdrassociation.org.uk.

They will have a background in another therapy such as CBT, Psychology, Counselling in addition to their EMDR qualification. They will be a member of a regulatory body associated with their profession and be a member of the EMDR Association of UK and  Ireland and working towards or be accredited with them as an EMDR therapist or consultant.

Please see a short video on EMDR for adults.

Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT)

Cognitive Analytic Therapy,is a very active therapy, inviting you to be the observer of your own life and to take part in what needs change. The changes needed may be small, such as stopping being caught in a trap of avoiding things, or they may be larger, such as finding new ways of relating to other people. CAT shows you the way to change your learned attitudes and beliefs about yourself and others, and helps you focus on ways to make better choices.

Together with your therapist, in the safety of the therapeutic relationship you will gradually develop an understanding of the ways in which you have learned to cope with what has happened in your life. Often people who have been through abuse, neglect or trauma feel bad about themselves and this can affect self-confidence. CAT is a very creative therapy and the process of understanding and self discovery may involve painting as well as writing, self-reflection and learning to self-monitor through journal keeping.

CAT is used for a range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety and relationship problems. In particular, it has been used to work with hard to help problems such as eating disorders and personality disorders. It can also be useful for people who have become stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour or relationships.

CAT therapy is time-limited, usually between 8-24 sessions with sessions lasting between 50-60 mins. Follow up sessions are also offered. Individuals need to be motivated to engage in therapy and prepared to some extent to explore their childhood experience

At Feel Well Therapy our CAT therapists will usually have either a core training as a mental health professional (e.g. as a Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Nurse, Social Worker or Occupational Therapist,) or be an accredited counsellor. They will be accredited with  ACAT the association for cognitive analytical therapists and have a minimum of 2 years post qualification experience.

Counselling

Counselling is often used as a generic term for all talking therapies but is a therapy in its own right.

Counselling is a talking therapy where you talk in confidence to a counsellor to help you find ways to deal with difficulties in your life.

Counsellors may follow a specific model, but many counsellors integrate more than one model, along with elements of therapeutic approaches such as person-centred, solution focused or CBT approaches. Counselling is recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) if you:

  • are struggling to cope with a long-term condition
  • have chronic pain
  • are having fertility problems
  • have depression
  • are struggling with bereavement and loss
  • are struggling adapting to change
  • are struggling with identity issues
  • are experiencing relationship problems

At Feel Well Therapy our Counsellors will have either an advanced Diploma or degree in Counselling from a course provider verified by the BACP (British association of Counselling Psychotherapies). They will accredited with the BACP with a minimum of 2 years post qualification experience.

I am registered with most health care insurers.

I am professional, caring and also easy to talk to, and this has helped me to establish a successful private practice business called Feel Well Therapy (FWT).

I am a firm believer in evidence based practice and want to try and educate the public about what therapies they should be looking for to treat mental health conditions.

John Marshall
CBT Therapist

For most of my working life I was a history teacher in North London, however with retirement approaching I trained as a counsellor in 1990. My initial training was in Integrative counselling but in 1997 I started training in CBT as I found that the collaborative approach which CBT fosters suited me better, given my background in teaching. In CBT we are teaching the client to become their own therapist.

I moved from London to Norfolk in 2001 and I completed the Post Graduate Diploma course in CBT at UEA. I started working in private practice in 2003 while at the same time doing voluntary counselling for various organisations in Norwich. I became accredited with both the BACP and the BABCP the regulatory bodies for Counsellors and CBT Therapists. . From 2007 I have concentrated my voluntary work at the St Barnabas Counselling Centre in Derby St where I see clients one day a week. In 2014 I decided to move my private practice to Beccles where I now work at the Saxon Alternative Therapy Centre in New Market for one day a week, on a Monday.

Throughout my career I have enjoyed running various training courses for counsellors on CBT and am committed towards my own ongoing professional development.

Jane Oldman-Hands

Counsellor Adults 18+

I have been working as a counsellor for the past 9 years within a variety of counselling settings including Wellbeing/IAPT services, education, charities and private practice. I completed a Person-Centred Counselling Diploma in 2011 and continued to update my training completing a Master’s Degree in Counselling Research at the UEA in 2012. I have undertaken counsellor supervision training in 2015, with counselling supervision also being an important part of my practice.

I am an approachable, warm and empathetic person, and am passionate about how counselling can empower clients to make steps towards changes in their lives.  My practice is grounded in the person-centred approach, and this provides clients with a non-judgemental space where we can look together at your feelings and concerns at your pace.

I believe by processing your concerns and emotions can lead you to gain new insights and a greater understanding of yourself and your life experiences or situations. By attending to these uncertainties can then give you a clearer view of your experiences and support you with steps towards feeling less anxious and more in control of your life decisions.

I have a wide range of experience working with clients presenting with a variety of different needs, including issues of low self-confidence, bereavement and loss, childhood sexual abuse, identity issues, gender dysmorphia, sexual orientation, LGBTQI issues, anxiety, depression and relationship issues.

I am a BACP Accredited counsellor and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework ensuring a high level of professional care is provided to clients.
