Dr Anna Brooks

Princess of Wales Hospital Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan Wales.

My name is Dr Anna Brooks. I am a Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered Principle Psychologist with a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology. I am accredited as a supervisor with the British Association of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), and I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS). I work in South Wales and I am trained in a range of therapeutic approaches including Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). I have worked in NHS Services for thirteen years and specialised in working with older people with a range of mental health presentations including cognitive functioning difficulties.  I have also worked with people children and adolescents who have experienced a wide range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), fluctuating moods/emotional instability, trauma based difficulties, personality disorders, relationship difficulties and low self-worth/shame.

In my professional experiences so far, I am always struck by the theme of self-criticism and shame that many people experience.  Using CFT in particular is always powerful in being able to help people to develop a compassionate mind to help strengthen their compassion skills to help facilitate positive change in their lives.
