Nightingale Therapy

PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID 19 pandemic, all sessions are offered on Skype or Zoom.

My name is Linda K. Berkeley and I am an Anglo-American BABCP fully accredited CBT therapist and integrative psychologist. I have my private practice in Lambourn, West Berkshire, established in 2017. I worked for NHS IAPT services for 8.5 years.

Conditions I work with: depression, all types of anxiety, OCD, complex trauma/PTSD, substance misuse, eating disorders, personality disorders, fear, trust issues, trichotillomania and other bodily focused repetitive behaviours, and anything else you can bring to therapy.

Therapies offered: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

Clients I work with: Children age 11+, adolescents, adults, couples, and families, those who have left cults or other high demand organisations.

I can offer short or longer-term work and online therapy. I am told I am easily approachable, with a ready smile, an optimistic viewpoint, and an enthusiasm for life.

If you think I could be of any help to you or you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or send me an email. I look forward to meeting you and want to congratulate you for having the courage to seek help with your issues.

Fees: £70.00 per 50 - 60 minutes for individual therapy; £90.00 for couples / families. Reports for third parties will attract the hourly fee.

Insurance: I am recognised by all the major insurance companies.

Registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) ZA275676

Governing bodies: I am a member of and abide by the ethics and standards of the following professional organisations: BABCP, BPS, BACP, FDAP, APA (Affiliate) Divisions 17, 49, and 50.

A note of caution: There are many people advertising that they are "qualified" in CBT and they are not. The only way to be sure you are receiving an evidenced based psychological therapy like CBT is to check the register of the governing body. You can find me on the CBT Register, which is run by the BABCP.
