About Jo Pearson
The good news is that there is a proven way to successfully overcome mental health problems.
For over 12 years I have been working in mental health. After starting my career as a mental health nurse, I quickly discovered that I had an interest in psychological therapies and trained to become a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist. I have been a qualified therapist now for 8 years and had the opportunity to work in a range of settings with a variety of clients. Further to my general CBT training, I have specialist training and experience in treating Eating Disorders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and, alongside my private practice I currently work for a specialist eating disorders service in London.
I’m passionate about delivering tried and tested interventions and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is well known to be one of the most effective psychological treatments.
My approach aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts.
Whether you are trying to overcome a trauma, having problems with your eating and body image, dealing with low mood or anxiety, I will help you understand your difficulties and show you how to change negative patterns that will improve the way you feel.
Why is accreditation important?
Choosing the right person to seek help and therapy from can sometimes be a confusing task. Many people claim to be qualified professionals yet may have very basic training and limited knowledge or experience.
Accreditation means that a therapist has demonstrated that they meet high standards of training and experience in delivering therapy. They commit to maintaining high standards of clinical practice, clinical supervision and continuing professional development activities. They are also audited to ensure that they continue to meet these expectations.
The CBT Register UK is a public register of accredited BABCP members. The aim of the Register is to protect the public, employers and other agencies by helping them find therapists who have met the required standards.
