Wendy Thompson

Independent Living Nurse

I am a Registered Mental Health Nurse with a keen interest in Psychological therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and associated therapeutic interventions. I have been involved in successful Anxiety management, exposure to phobias and OCD workshops of which I truly believe we all could benefit from at some stage in our lives. I have a keen interest in Buddhism and the Zen foundation which are the fundamentals of CBT, I also try to promote and practice Mindfulness. Historically I practised Midwifery and previous to this worked in Physiotherapy and Podiatry Clinics, therefore have a wide range of knowledge and experiences to bring to HomeCareDirect.

I have a family of my own of whom are all adults now and have 2 cats at home which welcome me at the end of my day. My hobbies are gardening, Macramé and recently Hypnotherapy of which I am to start a training course in the near future of which I am hoping will widen my horizons.
