About Avy Joseph
Cognitive Behavioural Therapist in London
Avy Joseph is an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and co-founder of the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. He is a registered and accredited therapist with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and a board member of The Association of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapists (AREBT).
Avy believes that an action oriented and compassionate approach to emotional problems, personal development and growth is important when working with clients. A person’s potential is often blocked by old patterns of thinking and behaviours which are learned either in childhood; or in later life, but usually maintained with or without awareness, in the present. Such beliefs and patterns are at the heart of emotions like anxiety, depression, guilt, hurt, jealousy, anger, embarrassment and envy as well as unhelpful behaviours, thoughts and symptoms.
Avy began working as a counsellor in 1992, developing and running workshops on Relationship Problems, Phobias, Hypnosis in Dentistry, Panic Disorders as well as Goal Achievement. It was when lecturing both nationally and internationally that his interest in evidence based cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) grew. In 2001 he gained an MSc in rational-emotive behavioural therapy from Goldsmiths College, University of London (one of the main schools of cognitive and behavioural therapy).
He has published Confidence and Success with CBT and Visual CBT with Maggie Chapman. Other published works include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - your route out of perfectionism, self sabotage and other every day habits.
The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CCBT) was established to train adult learners, therapists, hypnotherapists and health-care professionals in the theory, practice, ethics and therapeutic applications of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies.
