Jose Perez de La CruzCognitive behaviour therapy therapist
I am a therapist with more than 10 years of experience providing individual therapy. During this time I have worked both in the UK and Australia, within the NHS and private sector.
Over the course of my career I have worked in a range of therapeutic settings, including hospitals, group therapy and the charitable sector. More recently, I have been involved in the training of other therapists as well.
During my spare time I am a keen runner, running on the trails in and around the lakes near where I live, as well as up the occasional mountain.
My approach to therapy is collaborative and flexible. I have completed training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational interviewing, Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy. I am also conversant with mindfulness-based approaches to healing. I utilise elements and interventions from these therapies based on the individual needs of my clients.
My services include individual therapy for adults, group therapy and training. I also offer Hypnotherapy (suggestion therapy and hypnoanalysis). I specialise in therapy for addiction and sexual health related issues.

Types of therapy
Sessions are 50 minutes in length. My standard fee is £50 per session. I undertake all of my sessions through video-call. Telephone therapy is also available.
All sessions must be paid for in advance. Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will incur the full session fee.
I am a registered provider with Aetna Global Benefits and VitalityHealth. For all other insurances, I am an out-of-network provider. I will provide a bill for you to submit to insurance and your insurance company can clarify the reimbursement amount and the information needed for claims.
