Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (BABCP)
Hello, my name is Nathan Deery, and I am a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist (CBP), accredited with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
I completed my training and started working as a mental health nurse in 2008, and began my training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) in 2010, before working full-time as a psychotherapist in 2013.
I left the NHS after 14 years in 2022 to start up my own private practice, Greater Sense Psychological Therapies, and now see clients both online and in person at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, London E8 4DE.
In addition to CBT, I have also completed training and undertaken supervised clinical practice in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and metacognitive therapy (MCT).
I successfully completed a PG Cert. in cognitive behavioural couples therapy (CBCT), and will be offering couples therapy alongside individual therapy in the coming months.
I offer individual therapy which draws on some of the key ideas and principles of CBT and other related therapeutic approaches, such as ACT and MCT. This includes the idea that emotional and mental health difficulties are often caused and kept going by the way that we relate to – i.e. think about and behave towards our own personal experiences, whilst also taking into account the context in which these occur.
My clinical experience includes the treatment of a wide range of difficulties, such as anxiety disorders e.g. generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, health-related anxiety, phobias, social anxiety disorder – also depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, anger and stress.
I am especially interested in working with trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and working with people who have become stuck or feel unable to move on from aversive life experiences.
I take the approach that however you have been feeling, there are likely to be very good reasons for the ways that you have been trying to cope with things until now, and I will work collaboratively with you to identify a direction in therapy that feels meaningful to you.
I believe that a flexible, compassionate approach to your experiences, with the aim of increasing your awareness and acknowledging the actual choices that you have available to you, will always give you the best opportunity of making the changes that you are hoping to make in therapy.
Individual therapy sessions are 60 minutes as standard and are charged at £80 per session.
90-minute sessions may sometimes be necessary and are charged at £120 per session.
I offer a free, 15-20 minute telephone consultation to new clients, in order to answer any questions that you may have and to help us both decide whether the approach that I take will be right for you.
If you decide that you would like to go ahead with booking an appointment, I can arrange this for you during this call.
I currently offer therapy online, and also have a limited number of in-person therapy appointments on Thursdays at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston.
