Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist
Based at Barnsley
Jennie Beattie graduated from her first degree (women's studies) in 1998. She gained experience in a variety of mental health care settings before enrolling on a post graduate diploma in Mental Health Nursing in 2001. She graduated with distinction in 2003 and took the opportunity to nurse in an acute psychiatric inpatient setting.
Jennie completed her Masters in Medical Science the following year. Her thesis researched the impact of mixed gender inpatient accommodation on the care of female survivors of trauma.
Jennie enjoyed her inpatient career and was promoted to ward sister. She maintained a special interest in service development for the benefit of survivors of trauma and the implementation of evidence based psychological interventions.
In 2008 Jennie took the opportunity to become a senior community nurse in an Early Intervention Team where her interest in evidence based psychological therapies was further inspired and she began her post graduate diploma in Cognitve Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
Since qualifying in 2009 Jennie has been employed as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist in a NHS Primary Care therapy team. She is a fully accredited BABCP therapist. Her completion of all parts of the Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) training and her Cognitive Behavioural Analysis Sysytem of Psychotherapy training (for chronic depression) has complimented her practice in her NHS and her private therapy.
Jennie enjoys working alongside clients with a range of anxiety disorders and depression. Her special area of interest is individual and group psychotherapy with clients experiencing traumatic stress.
Jennie was elected as a trustee to the Bristish Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) board in 2012. She enjoys her role as board lead for accreditation issues and has become a volunteer on the course accreditation team. She feels privileged to have the opportunity to contribute to the promotion of the science and practice of CBT and she is particularly dedicated to the maintenance of high standards in clinical practice.
In her free time Jennie likes running and cooking.
