Jen Brown @ Harmony Orion | CBT | Psychotherapy
Hi, I’m Jen, an experienced, dedicated and highly qualified Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapist. CBT is my main theoretical model along with Counselling. This being complimented by other approaches such as Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness. I use these methods, along with many other influences and inspirations, to help clients achieve greater wellbeing. We can accomplish this by working through anxiety difficulties such as Worry, Panic Attacks, Social Anxiety, Stress, Depression and low mood, Trauma, OCD, Low Self Esteem and many more. I work with adults (18+) in Leicestershire, both in person, and online, if preferred.
I strive to be creative and flexible; responding to you as a unique individual and what you bring, for a bespoke approach. Ultimately I hope to work alongside you, helping you to grow towards your goals. In order to foster a warm therapeutic relationship, featuring support, understanding and compassion, it is vital to feel comfortable and safe with your therapist.
Qualifications and experience are of course crucial too, so here they are.
For 3 years, I have been working within the Higher Education sector, conducting Psychological Therapy with students. I also offer clinical supervision, both to trainee and experienced CBT Therapists. I am qualified to MSc level in Counselling Psychology, hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychological Interventions – (with BABCP accreditation), a Higher Education Certificate in Counselling and a Social Psychology Bachelors degree.
CBT and Me
CBT is an evidence based talking therapy, the basis of which being that we can all be helped by understanding our thinking patterns, our emotions and how we deal with them. Often we find ourselves in difficult patterns and routines that maintain our distress without knowing, and feel stuck, CBT aims to help identify this and look at alternative ways of thinking and being.
‘Third wave’ CBT (such as CFT, ACT and Mindfulness) approaches incorporate the above and extend to a holistic way of looking at health and wellbeing and the relationship we have with our issues.
Flexibly applying these integrative ideas allows me to work with you as a unique individual in a bespoke way.
CBT is a structured process that involves working actively at change and being open to new approaches, rather than purely talking about issues. There will however be plenty of opportunity to talk, within our supportive and collaborative relationship.
From the first full length session, we will work at identifying what you would like to work through.
There will be provision of relevant information and resources, with exploration of your background, and the developing of our understanding of how your difficulties are maintaining themselves.
We will think together about what you would like to be different within your life after therapy and also balance this with what may be realistic.
We will also set up tasks for you to work on between sessions, helping you move towards your aims.
Normally we will agree to between 6 and 20 sessions, but this also depends on you, the nature of the problem, and your goals.
For longer term or more complex issues, we can consider a greater number of sessions.
Sessions take place in person, at comfortable and modern consulting rooms, or if preferred, online.
Payment for sessions is due 24 hours prior to the session taking place.
