Ellie Ewbank – She/Her
I am a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT Therapist) and a registered member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I also hold graduate membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH). My training includes a BSc. In Psychology and MSc. In Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I have experience working primarily in the private healthcare sector, and also supporting NHS IAPT (‘talking therapies’) services nationally. I work flexibly, offering either face-to- face or remote telehealth sessions.
I have a passion for person-centered care and believe that therapy can be more helpful when it is tailored to the individual, rather than a particular difficulty. I take an integrative approach, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion-Focussed Therapy (CFT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) Skills where appropriate for a particular client. I have received advanced training in CBT for insomnia, and motivational interviewing. These techniques compliment my work across a range of mental health difficulties.
I enjoy working with children and adolescents (age 11+) and adults. I am experienced in working with a wide variety of clients and presenting difficulties, not limited to depression, anxiety disorders, low self-esteem, self-harm, emotion dysregulation, and adjustment difficulties.
I have an ongoing interest in helping clients that live with long-term conditions (including pain and more complex medical needs), and a personal connection to this work. I understand the unique psychological burden that diagnoses or persistent physical symptoms can carry, in addition to the practical and emotional challenges that they can bring to the individual and wider family context. I help clients to take meaningful steps towards their values in the presence of difficult thoughts and feelings, and to increase their psychological flexibility during a time of adaptation.
I have experience working with clients with Neurological conditions, having worked closely with Headway groups both as a clinician and Trustee in the past. I am keeping this clinical interest alive through my work on an innovative, collaborative project called ‘Inspire Others’ with colleagues in the field.
Helping people overcome challenges is something that I really value, and I feel very privileged to share in a clients’ journey at what is often a vulnerable time in their lives. I encourage and enable clients to facilitate the necessary changes in their life to achieve their personal goals.
