My name is Claire Money and I am a BPS Chartered and HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist working in Colchester, Essex. I also provide CBT online via Skype and video link.
I am a compassionate, grounded and empathic practitioner with over 8 years post qualification experience in both the NHS and Private sector. I help people with varying levels of emotional distress and mental health difficulties.
I am very experienced in working with a number of problems, including anxiety difficulties (OCD, panic, worry, stress and social anxiety) depression, self esteem issues and trauma. My work in both the NHS and private sector has provided me with the skills and expertise to work with mild, moderate and severe psychological difficulties.
Furthermore I have specialist experience of working with people who suffer from eating disorders and have published academic papers, and taught CBT to postgraduate students in this field.
I am trained in a number of therapeutic models enabling me to offer a very personalised and flexible treatment plan for the people I work with. Whilst my primary therapeutic approach is cognitive behavioural (CBT) I also practise psychodynamic therapy and person centred therapy. I have also trained in eye movement desensitisation reprocessing (EMDR) which is a specialist and highly regarded therapy for those who have experienced trauma in their lives and may experience post traumatic stress as a result. I draw on compassionate focused therapy and schema based therapy.
I will provide a safe, non-judgemental and supportive environment for you to discuss your difficulties, and together we will devise a treatment plan to help you move forward and make positive changes to improve the way you think, feel and behave.
I provide both short and long term therapy to adults and adolescents, and can offer both face to face and Skype sessions.
