Nina Shapiro
Registered Psychologist

Nina qualified as a psychologist 24 years ago. Since then she has worked in a variety of schools, childrens’ therapy centres and in private practice. She sees both children and adults, and has extensive experience with trauma, anxiety and transitions (divorce, bereavement, moving, becoming a parent etc).

When working with children/teenagers, Nina uses mostly play therapy, bibliotherapy, art, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy. With adults, she also uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy (particularly with trauma) as well as BWRT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and the more traditional Talking Therapies.  

Nina recently completed training in Cognitive Processing Therapy for Trauma and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She has also become a registered practioner in BWRT (Brain Working Recursive Therapy), a unique and relatively new therapy which uses knowledge of the structure and functioning on the brain to make lasting changes in a wide variety of psychological difficulties.
