Tracy Avis Integrative psychotherapist , OX10
Hello, I have been working for the last 5 years in private practice, prior to which I worked for more than 14 years in the NHS as a CBT Therapist, an Occupational Therapist and a Psychology Researcher on treatment trials.
I work mainly with adults, but have lots of experience with both couples and adolescents.
My practice is based on my training in Psychology and Cognitive Therapy and after an initial meeting, I will offer an intervention that you and I agree might suit your individual needs as well as meeting the best evidence base available. My aim will be to use the knowledge, skills and experience I have gained throughout my training and practice to work collaboratively with you, whether you are experiencing acute or chronic distress or simply need to look at some of the patterns or traps you may have fallen into that are limiting your enjoyment of life.
I work with GPs, other mental health professionals and can liaise with schools, universities or other appropriate people - perhaps family, carers or friends - who are important to you. My service is confidential and I practice within the professional guidelines of the Health Professions Council and the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychology.
