DURING THE CURRENT VIRUS CRISIS, I WILL BE OFFERING THERAPY USING SKYPE, ZOOM, OR TELEPHONE. This is to comply with current government and NHS advice to keep everyone safe.
Choosing the therapist who is right for you is not easy and I hope the information here will help you make this important decision. After all, your therapist will begin with you as a complete stranger and you are preparing to tell them not just your story, but share intimate details about your life. My name is Linda K. Berkeley and I am an Anglo-American BABCP fully accredited CBT therapist and integrative psychologist. I am highly experienced in working with depression, all types of anxiety, OCD, trauma, complex trauma, substance misuse, trichotillomania and other bodily focused repetitive behaviours, trust issues, eating disorders, hearing voices, personality issues, fear, and anything else you can bring to therapy. I can also offer supervision at reasonable rates and group work. I work with people from all backgrounds and ethnicities and have experience in working with people on the autistic spectrum, those with learning difficulties, people who have left “”cults”” (high demand organisations), and long-term health conditions. I can offer short or longer-term work and online therapy. I am told I am easily approachable, with a ready smile, an optimistic viewpoint, and an enthusiasm for life. If you think I could be of any help to you or you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or send me an email. I look forward to meeting you and want to congratulate you for having the courage to seek help with your issues. I am recognised as a provider by the following insurance companies: Aviva, AXA PPP, BUPA, Cigna Healthcare, Vitality Health, Healix Health Services, WPA, SimplyHealth, Sparta Health, and Nuffield Health.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
