Christabel Adebayo, CBT TherapistCertificate of Excellence 2019
Streatham, London(7 Reviews)
Having worked in the mental health field for nearly 10 years, I have developed a depth of knowledge and a passion to help and support people with mental health difficulties. There is a lot of stigma about mental health problems; many people are ashamed, afraid and confused. The resulting effect is that people often feel guilty, angry and ultimately worsen and prolong the problem by staying silent. I have worked with people from every walk of life and I have made it my mission to improve lives as much as I can and hope I can help you too.
I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist working in South East London. I have extensive NHS experience of understanding and helping individuals manage their emotional distress, challenging life events, and complex psychological issues. I specialise in treating adults with:
Depression (persistent low mood and lack of motivation)
Generalised Anxiety Disorder (problems with excessive worrying)
Habit Disorders (hair pulling, skin picking)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
My therapy room is based in Streatham.

What do you love most about your job?
The most rewarding part of my job is seeing the difference in my clients at the end of therapy. Witnessing the change and improvement over the sessions is incredible. My passion is to empower people to recognise that they hold the ability to get better. And my job is to guide them there. I do not really see it as a job - it feels more like a calling.
As a CBT Therapist I enjoy the practical nature of the therapy; turning theory to practice and enable people to experience change in the way the feel quite rapidly.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I have extensive experience working in the NHS, however due to government targets and low resources, there are constraints in certain therapeutic practice such as - limited sessions and very long waiting times (some waiting times are 6 months plus!) I decided to start my own private practice to cater for the needs of those who may need more sessions or who would like support sooner.
Why should our clients choose you?
From the feedback I have received from my past clients, I have been told that my caring, warm and understanding nature really helps people feel comfortable and able to open up to me. I have several years experience working with mood and anxiety disorders and feel very confident in my knowledge of evidence-based interventions. As a Black & Minority Ethnic psychotherapist, I also am aware of cultural differences and apply adaptations appropriately in my work.
