Dr Rebecca Knowles Bevis Cognitive behaviour therapy psychologist , OX10
Dr. Rebecca Knowles Bevis (PhD, DClinPsy, CPsychol)
I am a Clinical Psychologist, chartered by the British Psychological Society, and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist. I have over 13 years’ experience of clinical practice in NHS community mental health services, and I have worked as an academic and research psychologist at the University of Sheffield and Oxford University. I now work both in the NHS and in the private sector, and am an associate therapist and supervisor with the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre.
My approach to therapy is compassionate, honest and collaborative, and my focus is on developing a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship to enable people to resolve difficulties and make positive changes for themselves. Throughout therapy, we will work together in order to arrive at a better understanding of your difficulties. I will help you to learn strategies and skills you can use to help you protect yourself against similar difficulties in the future. There are many different ways to address psychological issues, and I will work with you to find the approach, or combination of approaches, that suits you.
I am experienced in the assessment and treatment of a wide range of psychological and emotional difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, relationship and family difficulties, low self-esteem, grief and loss, for example. I have a special interest in perinatal psychology, and in the particular issues and transitions faced by expectant and new parents from conception through to the end of the first year after the birth of a baby. I’m also a recognised birth doula, working with couples and families through pregnancy and birth.
I encourage your active involvement at every stage of treatment, and I will provide a safe and supportive environment within which you can take on both the challenges and the rewards of therapy.
