Dr Monica Cain

  • Counselling Psychologist
  • CBT Therapist

My professional qualifications, accreditations and memberships:

Accredited with the British Psychological Society.

My professional experience:

I have worked in the NHS and private sector with older adults, adults and adolescents with eating disorders and general psychological disorders. I facilitate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) groups and work on a one to one basis at Nightingale Hospital London.

My personal statement:

I work with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as my main theoretical model, and integrate other models such as psychodynamic approaches according to individual need. I specialise in anxiety disorders and depression and have a special interest in mindfulness based approaches.  I have completed my doctoral thesis on this subject. I often use mindfulness based approaches in my work, which doesn’t always include formal mindfulness meditations. I am currently in the process of designing a course which would address relapse prevention for depression using mindfulness based techniques.
