Efficacy announce return of junior therapist, Dr Anita Goraya, after extended CBT training in Complex Cases at Oxford University
Experienced former GP, Anita Goraya is now developing specialist expertise in dealing with psychological trauma. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can develop following a stressful life event or catastrophic situation which has involved fear, helplessness or horror. It is common to experience PTSD like symptoms if you’ve experienced or witnessed an event(s) that involved actual or threatened death, serious injury or a physical threat to yourself or others.
People living with PTSD (and complex PTSD) often suffer for months or years before finding treatment. Other disorders may be associated with PTSD, including depression, drug or alcohol problems, social anxiety, panic and generalised anxiety symptoms.
How can CBT Therapy help me with PTSD?
CBT is the treatment of choice for PTSD, and trauma-focused CBT is recommended by NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) for treatment of those with severe symptoms. CBT has the best evidence for the treatment of PTSD. NICE also identify that Eye Movement Desenitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) has an emerging and increasing evidence base in the treatment of PTSD.

Client testimonial from June 2019:
Dr Anita has been brilliant - first and foremost attentive and kind but also intensely practical. She has helped me identify how I feel and how I can change negative patterns of thought and behaviour. I would recommend her to anyone looking into CBT.
