Therapist Profiles – Let’s Meet Kiera Benson

Welcome to the third therapist profile – this week we’re chatting to Kiera Benson from Ieso Digital Health!


Tell us about yourself!

My name is Kiera and I am based up in Scotland. I completed my CBT Diploma in 2014 and have been working both as a BABCP Accredited CBT therapist and Clinical supervisor since. As well as working within mental health services, my background has involved working in the voluntary sector supporting children and families recovering from domestic abuse and also helping individuals recovering from substance misuse. I am really passionate about making recovery personal to an individual’s needs and ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to gain access to support.

What is your current role and how long have you been in this role?

I have been working with Ieso Digital Health as an affiliate CBT therapist for over 4 years now and really love being part of the network there and helping patients access support.

What do you enjoy the most about your role?

I really love the flexibility and accessibility that Ieso Digital Health provides. I can pick what days and times I would like to offer sessions to patients. I also value the support I get from the team at Ieso, I have access to regular supervision, case management, as well as free CPD which ensures that I am able to continue to expand my knowledge on specific disorders / approaches and have space to reflect on my practice. Which in turn I feel helps me to ensure that I am offering the best possible support to patients.

What would you say to someone thinking of starting a talking therapy?

If an individual was thinking about starting typed CBT therapy here at Ieso, I would encourage them to take that first step and attend the first session. By engaging with treatment at Ieso you are able to attend sessions securely and privately from the comfort of your own home. I work with so many new mums, people that are working full time or attending university and often finding the time to access therapy can be hard. Being able to make space for yourself and attend to your needs at home really opens up an opportunity to start working on difficult symptoms and hopefully feeling better within yourself.


A big thank you to Kiera for chatting to us!
