Clinicians at SB CBT Clinics
All our treating psychologists are Consultant Chartered Psychologists who each have in excess of seven years' experience in senior practitioner post within the NHS. All have qualifications at either masters or doctoral level in psychology. All currently hold or have held senior positions within the NHS, where the provision of CBT has formed a major component of their clinical responsibility.
All are members of both the British Psychological Society and the Health Professionals Council and are required to complete continuous professional development in line with continuing registration. Sheehan Brooke CBT does not use the services of professionals in training.
All psychologists working at the clinic have been selected on the basis of their clinical experience, sensitivity and people skills.
