Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Overcoming problems using a structured and empowering approach

Judith Argent 



I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist accredited by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).


Having initially trained as a general and mental health nurse, I managed an NHS behavioural psychotherapy in-patient unit at St Luke's Hospital in Muswell Hill.


20 years ago I undertook further training at Goldsmiths University leading to a diploma in CBT and since then have completed training courses in using compassionate mind therapy, EMDR and mindfulness to treat trauma and also a wide range of other disorders.


In the past ten years I have worked both within my private practice and also at the Priory Hospital North London as part of a small specialist team providing CBT for young people and adults with severe OCD, BDD and other obsessional disorders. I also work with clients with eating disorders and work alongside a nutritionist to provide a specialist treatment package.


I am qualified and experienced in working with young people who I feel greatly benefit from being taught to use compassionate mind and mindfulness skills to enable them to manage and control distressing emotions.


I have regular clinical supervision and attend frequent professional development courses/workshops.
