Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Rational-Emotive Behaviour Therapy
A few words about myself
Kate Lewis, BSc (hons), MSc, MBPsS
I am a psychotherapist practising Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Rational-Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT).
I have a Masters Degree (MSc) in Rational-Emotive and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy from Goldsmiths College, University of London.
In addition to private practice, I have experience working as a psychotherapist for the NHS (IAPT) providing CBT for people experiencing depression and anxiety disorders. I also have experience at a London-based drug and alcohol service, providing REBT for those involved with problematic drug and alcohol use and its associated issues. I also have experience at Mind (the mental health charity) providing REBT and CBT for a client population experiencing a broad range of problems.
The therapy I practise…
Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based form of psychotherapy that looks at how we think about a situation and the effect this has on the way we act and also on how our actions can in turn affect our thoughts and feelings. CBT is a collaborative approach to therapy: therapist and client work together to help to change the client’s unhelpful thinking patterns and beliefs, or unhelpful behaviours, or a combination of both. CBT has been shown to be an effective treatment for many conditions including, but not limited to: anxiety disorders – generalised anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety, trauma and OCD, stress, anger, mixed anxiety and depression and assertiveness.
I have a successful track record of working collaboratively with clients, to help them to first establish clear goals, both practical and with regards to reducing distress and improving emotional wellbeing, and then working towards achieving these goals.
