Kelly Gall     Quals: BSc (Hons), MPsych (Health), MClinPsych MAPS

CBT: Trauma Focussed Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective, evidence-based approach for the treatment of PSTD in adults involving both cognitive therapy and exposure therapy.  Cognitive therapy helps people to identify unhelpful, biased or distorted thoughts, belief and memories about their traumatic experience. The exposure component involves confronting traumatic memories in safe environments and helping individuals to reduce anxiety associated with places and situations.

Counselling Approach: Kelly is an endorsed Health Psychologist and Clinical Psychologist, with training and experience in providing trauma focussed CBT for PTSD. If you have PTSD, you are likely to generally avoid thinking about your traumatic experience, and yet confronting these memories is integral to recovery.  Kelly therefore aims to ensure that her clients feel safe, secure and prepared to confront their past experiences.  She works with her clients to identify and address triggers for their symptoms and develop confidence in their ability to go about their lives more freely.
