Private Cognitive Behavioural Therapy & EMDR practice serving the Towy Valley and surrounding areas. 

About me

My name is Claire Young and I am a qualified and accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist & EMDR Therapist. I have been working in the field of mental health for over 10 years as a registered mental health nurse within the NHS. I currently continue to practice within the NHS as a Psychotherapist in addition to my private practice.

I specialise in trauma, anxiety disorders and depression using evidence based Psychotherapy that adheres to NICE guidelines. 

I am experienced in working with adults, children and adolescents and military veterans. I am an approved psychotherapy provider with Aviva & AXA health insurance.

I offer individual CBT & EMDR sessions on a weekly basis. The number of sessions required is dependent upon various factors, this will be discussed with you during the initial assessment appointment. The average number of sessions normally ranges between 8 and 20. I offer a FREE telephone consultation prior to assessment.

I have a collaborative and goal oriented approach. Sessions are primarily provided within a private clinic setting on a one to one basis, however home visits can be agreed on occasion (e.g. when working with agoraphobia). Flexible telephone and skype sessions can be negotiated.

Confidentiality - what is said in sessions is confidential (within the limits of professional discretion).

How can you be sure a CBT therapist is fully qualified to practice?
