Debbie Boomer

Cognitive Analytic Therapist
 

About

I am Debbie Boomer a Cognitive Analytic Therapist based in Lincolnshire. I have worked within mental health in the NHS for over 20 years having first qualified as a Mental Health nurse BSC(Hons) in 1995. I have worked in a number of clinical settings ranging from forensic inpatient to the community and have also been a teacher in the mental health field. For many years now I have worked with individuals and groups with complex needs delivering a number of specialist therapeutic interventions, including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT). 

Making the decision to engage in therapy can be a difficult one and it is important that you feel confident and comfortable with your choice of therapist and trust they have the appropriate qualifications, experience and clinical supervision. I have extensive training and experience in working with people with a wide range of problems and diagnoses including emotional difficulties, relational problems, issues of loss, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, OCD, trauma and abuse related difficulties including PTSD and psychosis. I ensure I keep up to date with clinical devleopments and receive regular private supervision for my private practice.   

I am a qualified CAT practitioner and member of ACAT and British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) registered, and have training and experience using EMDR, DBT, and Interpersonal therapy.
