CBT therapist UK
Dr Trudi Edginton is an outstanding clinician and researcher who is a Senior Lecturer in Cognitive Neuroscience and Co-Director of the Centre of Excellence in Mindfulness Research at City, University of London in the UK. Trudi has worked in the medical field working in a range of clinical, educational, organisational and community settings. She has a profound understanding of psychological distress, trauma and neurobiology and she has inspired us in terms of content creation. As a Clinical Psychologist and Mindfulness Teacher, she supports Clare in terms of emotional intelligence, be it perspective taking, mindfulness and being empathetic. She also supports the team in terms of content creation as well as novel topic ideas, finding solutions on how to combine CBT, mindfulness and compassion in order to reduce physical and emotional tension and pain and restore inner calm.
“With the complex demands on our everyday lives and the impact on our physical and mental health, ideally everyone should be able to access affordable, accessible, and tailored psychological therapy. However, this is not the world we currently live in, resulting in many people who are suffering alone. The unique features of Clare make you feel like you are talking to a person and that can help to improve our mental health and wellbeing”.
Prof. Dr. med Anxiety
Prof. Dr. Stephan Köhler is the top-notch senior researcher and Professor of Psychotherapy in the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at Charité University Medicine Berlin, Germany. He has his eyes on scientific evidence and credibility, advising us on how to make Clare to be “backed by science”. His in-depth knowledge and practical experience in the field, as well as genuine interest for mHealth solutions ensures that we combine scientific evidence with innovation. Stephan keeps track of Clare drawing on CBT techniques that are scientifically proven and supports us in the creation of an AI solution that is credible and effective. Stephan also supported the team in integrating “security systems” and “escalation workflows”, making sure Clare knows their limits and links users to an actual community based psycho-social support system if needed.
“We know that CBT works - solutions that are easily accessible and not expensive are needed. AI is becoming increasingly valuable in the medical field. I am excited to support Clare&me to help them build an AI voice bot that allows people to speak freely, seeking psychological support”.
