Adele Burdon-Bailey qualified as a lawyer and practiced law in both private practice and industry for around 20 years before retraining as a therapist following a particularly difficult period in her own life.
She has been qualified for over 12 years and joined Priory in October 2020, where she worked closely with other therapists and consultant psychiatrists to ensure she continued to provide the best support possible for those in my care. Prior to this, Adele worked in the NHS at a local hospital and then a GP practice in a deprived area, and before that at the University of Manchester Counselling Service where she worked with students and staff. Throughout her work Adele has been privileged to support clients across the social and economic spectrum.
Adele Burdon-Bailey is a member of BACP, BABCP and ACAT.
Adele attended Keele University to do a Diploma and then a Masters’ degree in Counselling Psychology in 2010 and gained a distinction.
She really enjoys learning new things and broadening her practice and has attended various post-qualification training courses, including the DBT skills, ‘regulating emotions the DBT way’ and courses on mindfulness, anger and suicide prevention.
In 2022 she starts training in CBT (PGDip) and will be able to offer CBT from July 2022.
