COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that has been found to be helpful in treating a wide range of emotional conditions. CBT is concerned with how we think about a situation and how our thought processes then affect our behaviour, our emotions and our physical body.
The therapist and client work together, considering which thoughts and behaviours are unhelpful for the client.
NICE provides independent, evidence-based guidance for the NHS on the most effective ways to treat disease and ill health. CBT is recommended by NICE for the treatment of anxiety disorders.

DR JANE MAJOR
Jane is an experienced clinical psychologist and relationship therapist. She completed her Doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of Surrey. As a clinical psychologist Jane trained in three core models of therapy which included cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic psychotherapy and systemic family therapy. She completed further post doctoral training at the Institute of Family therapy and Tavistock Relationships. She is chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).
Jane works with people needing both short and longer term therapy. Jane’s experience and training have led her to approach therapy from a position of pluralism finding that no one therapeutic approach works for all. Therefore, she tailors her approach to meet your unique needs. At the core of her work is developing a therapeutic relationship with you within which you feel safe enough to increase your awareness of, and meaningful engagement with, your feelings, relationships, behaviours and experiences both within and outside of therapy.
Jane supports you to explore, not “what is wrong with you” but “what has happened to you”. She understands that your context, culture, relationships, sexuality, experiences, abilities, lifestyle and beliefs will have impacted how you relate to yourself, life events and others. Jane is interested in your strengths as well as what you may be struggling with.
Jane has worked with people, across the lifespan, affected by emotional and relationship issues since 2002. She is experienced in working in the NHS, third sector and private health care settings. Jane works with people for a variety of different reasons. You may be looking for therapy because of the impact of symptoms such as depression and low mood, apathy, anxiety and anger. Perhaps you are affected by issues such as shame, loss, work and life stress, and trauma. You may be seeking to make sense of some of your life experiences in order to understand how they are impacting you now.
You may wish to work with Jane because of relationship issues. This might relate to difficulties adjusting to parenthood, communication difficulties, the impact of mental health issues and neurodiversity, vulnerability, sex and intimacy, sexuality, the aftermath of an affair, betrayal, fertility, and family issues. Whatever issues are affecting you Jane will work with you collaboratively and with compassion. You may choose to work with her alone or with your partner.
At Re-Centre Jane works with clients over the age of 18 only who are either self-funding or who are covered by private health insurance. She is registered with most insurance companies including; BUPA, AXA PPP, AVIVA, WPA, PruHealth, Cigna, and Simply Health.

Angela practices Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, which is a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and is based on the premise that people have rational and irrational thought patterns based on past events. Its suggests that rational thoughts encourage harmony, improve mental health and lead to goal attainment. While irrational thoughts and beliefs lead to a disturbance in thoughts, emotions and behaviours. This comprehensive approach helps people change dysfunctional emotions and behaviours by showing them how to become aware of and how to modify the beliefs and attitudes that create these unwanted states. Albert Ellis said of patients -:
"Because of their self-consciousness and their ability to think about their thinking, they can very easily disturb themselves about their disturbances and can also disturb themselves about their ineffective attempts to overcome their emotional disturbances." CBT can be used to treat a number of psychological and psychosomatic conditions.
Please contact Angela Giuliani to talk about how CBT might benefit you.
