Smart CBT was established in 2016 by Sarah Gibbs, a fully qualified and BABCP accredited CBT psychotherapist, with more than 12 years of clinical expertise in health and social care and leadership.

Sarah currently works for the NHS and privately with adolescents, adults and older adults. Specialist interest and experience includes PTSD, eating disorders, personality disorders and people with Asperger Syndrome or learning disabilities.

Smart CBT is the result of Sarah’s passion to support mental health in her community and the wider area in a fresh, flexible way. Through the practice, Sarah and her team of associate psychotherapists share the tools people need to understand their individual internal world and build resilience.
