Hello, my name is Enora. I am a level 5 (in England) qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, registered with the BABCP, The British association for CBT therapists (Joined as a student). I live in Colchester and work around Essex and online.
I am undertaking a Bachelor degree in Psychology with the University of Rennes 2 in Brittany. I study Neuroscience, Clinical Psychology, Social Psychology, Child Psychology, Biology, English, Spanish and Sociology.
I hold a Public liability insurance at £10,000,000 and professional indemnity and malpractice insurance at £1,500,000 .
After obtaining outstanding grades in CBT, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Child Psychology and NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, I decided to set up a website for people to find out more about the services I offer.
I am experienced in working with children and registered with Ofsted. I passed many qualifications to work with children.
I am DBS checked and subscribed to the DBS update service.
In the past, I have been a care assistant, working in nursing homes.
I loved every second of caring for older patients. I noticed my behaviour could have a cognitive effect on patients with Dementia and Alzheimer. I love them and feel the CBT process might be reversed with them.
With children and young people, we usually rely on cognitive process ( brain processing) to modify unwanted behaviour.
With older patients, it seems the process might be reversed. One must adapt his/her behaviour to intend to generate a cognition in the patient.
I am committed to providing my clients with the best quality and standards of therapy and care available.
CBT can be used as an alternative to taking medication in cases of mild depression, mild anxiety caused by recent events, with medical consent, before medication has been prescribed.
If depression, anxiety and other conditions are long lasting matters, I might have to refer you to your GP for him/her to evaluate whether it is safe for you to undertake psycho-therapy as a complementary method.
In cases when depression is clinical, long lasting or medicated, CBT can be used as a complementary method and regular interactions with your GP might be required. For this reason, I might need your consent to allow me to communicate with the medical body at any given time to protect you and make sure you are receiving adequate help. I will have to contact your GP and maybe Psychiatrist if you are taking psycho-active medication, have another established condition and might need to refer you to other specialists would it appear you might need complementary support.
Please understand the codes of ethics and confidentiality apply at all time and I might only communicate with the medical body in order to carry on with the therapy and provide you with a safe, effective, optimum service.
Whilst therapy can provide significant changes in clients, clients who use psycho-active medication have a duty to inform me that they are being followed, then inform their GP and psychiatrist if they undertake therapy because the medical team might be mislead to believe the changes are due to finding the right medication or the right dosage whilst self- actualisation, understanding yourself better might be the reason why you feel better. You might need to reduce or re-adjust your treatment at any time whilst we are working together so please do keep us informed of your progress.
It might be necessary to re-ajust your treatment, lessen the treatment progressively with the supervision and agreement of your GP if therapy makes you feel better. Never attempt to quit psycho-active medication alone or skip a medication. This could have serious consequences on your physical and mental health, even if you feel better. It is vital for the treatment to be diminished progressively, with medical supervision and agreement.
CBT is a complementary method, aimed at helping you feeling better. It is not an alternative method for treating mental health, although the treatment can help you gain control of negative thought, reprogram your brain to think effectively and positively, help you gain control of negative emotions and negative thinking patterns, your physical health matters. Medication can help regulate and balance your brain to a degree. Psycho-active medications are physically and mentally addictive. Sudden withdrawal from medications can make you relapse and even cause physical illness or discomfort. Always speak to your GP to smoothly get off medication or change a treatment that is not being effective. Never attempt to quit medications alone!
