Clinicians – Moodwise – Clare Beavan and Tracey Patrick (click for more info)
Hello and Welcome to MoodWise, a service offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
MoodWise is run by Clare Beavan and Tracey Patrick. We are both BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapists with many years’ experience in both the NHS and private practice.
CBT is an evidence based psychotherapy that offers effective ways of change. It explores the relationship between our thinking, our behaviours and our emotions. Simply put, CBT helps us understands how and why a problem is being maintained.
CBT is recommended by NICE for a range of difficulties including:
Panic – Agoraphobia – Generalised Anxiety Disorder commonly known as excessive worry – Health Anxiety – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) – Sleep difficulties – Social Anxiety – Specific Phobias – Body Image difficulties – Depression – Low Self Esteem – Anger – Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) – Skin Picking and hair pulling (Trichotillomania) – Work Related Stress
CBT is a collaborative process that enables people to develop the knowledge and skills needed to manage their difficulties. In between session work is a necessary ingredient for the success of CBT and, by the time we have finished working together you will be your own therapist.
EMDR is a brief and effective evidence based treatment that is recognised by NICE for the treatment of trauma and other emotional disorders. Its focus lies on memories that continue to trigger excessive emotions in daily life.
When we experience traumatic or troubling events, the memories can sometimes go unprocessed leaving an individual with negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours. EMDR helps by processing these memories (with the help of side to side eye movements generated by the therapist) and brings about more positive, balanced feelings and beliefs in the here and now.
