Miriam Burton – CBT Therapy & Clinical Psychology
Hello, my name is Miriam Burton and I am a fully qualified and BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and HCPC registered Psychologist.
I provide therapy remotely via video-link (Zoom, Microsoft teams, Skype, Web-Ex) as well as in person from Craven Clinic, an established Therapy Clinic in Skipton, North Yorkshire.
My background is in Clinical Psychology and I have over 15 years experience, in the NHS and privately.
I primarily work with people who are experiencing common mental health difficulties such as
– Anxiety-based problems (General Anxiety/Worry, Social Anxiety/Shyness, Health Anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Specific Phobias, Panic Attacks, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
– Self-Esteem Difficulties
I specialise in Perinatal Psychology, addressing mental health difficulties before and after birth (eg postnatal depression, general anxiety, fear of birth, birth trauma, miscarriage). I am also passionate about helping parents at any stage of their journey to build confidence in their parenting and can consult on behaviour management.
I am able to provide assessments and therapy session for ages 12 years onwards.
I offer a 10-15 mins free initial online consultation to briefly discuss your difficulties and how I could help.
My fee for a 50-60 min online session is £85. Sessions in my clinic room at the Craven Clinic are charged at £90.
Walk and talk available if you prefer to meet outdoors (walk starts from Craven Clinic, £90 for 50-60min).
Discounts are available for NHS staff, students or people on low income (£70).
I am a registered provider with Aviva, AXA Health, Vitality, WPA (others per request). If you have private Health insurance, please speak to your provider about starting therapy and let me know your pre-authorisation code and membership number. I can then invoice them directly in accordance with your policy.
As a working parent my appointments are usually provided during school hours, term time only, plus some availability on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening (£10 surcharge per session).
Feel free to contact me via the email address given above.
If you are happy to book an assessment consultation we would then discuss your current difficulties and history in detail as well as develop your goals for therapy. I will introduce the recommended approach for your specific problem, and help you understand it from a psychological perspective and how you can start to make changes. After each session further worksheets or practice tools are provided to help you build on your learning between our sessions. We will review how therapy is working for you at Session 6 and discuss how many more sessions (usually up to 20) would be helpful for you to reach your therapy goals.
I am a kind, honest and experienced therapist and work collaboratively with each person. My main therapeutic modality is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and I have additional training in Mindfulness, Compassion Focussed Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as Parenting Training, which I incorporate in a structured way to help people reach their therapy goals.
I abide by the professional and ethical standards laid down by the HCPC and BABCP. I have full professional indemnity insurance and current DBS clearance.
