Bernadette Ainsworth BA (Hons) MSc. BABCP Accredited
Bernadette holds an MSc. in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy and CBT. She is an accredited member of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP). She has an extensive background in treating Anxiety, Depression, Eating Distress, Bulimia, Bipolar Disorder and in helping people effectively manage their emotional, personal and workplace stresses.
Bernadette has previously worked at the Princess Grace Hospital near Harley Street where she took ward rounds and treated outpatients. She is currently in private practice with a consulting room in central London where she takes referrals from Harley Street and the Priory as well as clients recommended by word of mouth.
She has a particular interest in managing anxiety and stress related issues having achieved excellent results with eating distress and bulimia. She has a background in the performing arts and, as a consequence, has been very successful in helping some high-profile individuals overcome Performance Anxiety - in the management of which REBT seems to produce even more effective and rapid results than CBT.
She offers a unique treatment package tailored to the needs of the individual for the education of sufferers in the long-term management of Bipolar Disorder and was last year invited to present her work on this subject at a multi-national conference on Bipolar Disorder in Stockholm.
Bernadette is committed to achieving the best possible therapeutic alliance with her clients in order to achieve optimum results.
