Hello, my name is Rosie Beck (she/her). I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist from The University of Liverpool in 2013, and have worked in client facing clinical roles in NHS mental health services for the last 15 years. My current NHS role is Senior Clinical Psychologist in a Community Mental Health Team (CMHT). In this setting I typically work directly and indirectly with adults who have experienced complex trauma. This is done through 1:1 therapy, group therapies, family therapies and by strengthening the psychologically informed care they may be receiving from other professionals.
I have undertaken post-qualification training in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Behavioural Family Therapy (BFT). Other approaches I draw on in practice include Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Psychosis (CBT; CBTp), Polyvagal Theory, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
The focus of work will vary from person to person, but common areas people choose to work on with me tend to be: managing emotions, making sense of trauma, building awareness of personal patterns in relationships, and improving self-esteem and self-compassion in order to live a meaningful, authentic and valued life.
I am passionate about inclusivity in mental health. I feel therapy should be accessible, that every person seeking therapy should have an experience of being understood, and should not be disadvantaged in any way. I am an affirmative therapist in working with LGBTQ+, gender, sex and relationship diversity clients, clients who may identify as belonging to alternative subcultures, and clients who self-identify or are pursuing diagnoses of neurodivergent conditions, such as ASD and ADHD.
