Counseling MSc UKRCP Accredited
Hello, I am a counsellor and psychotherapist experienced working with a diverse range of clients and presenting difficulties. I take a professional yet down-to-earth approach to therapy offered in a non-judgmental environment. Taking that step to find someone to discuss your personal issues with can seem daunting. That is why I believe it is important to find a therapist that you feel comfortable working with. I strive to work very collaboratively with clients from the outset, establishing a sincere and trusting therapeutic relationship. From this relational basis we are then best placed to pursue and realize your goals for therapy.
Give us a call at: 07446179973 and make an appointment today.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
CBT is based on the principle that individuals learn unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving over a long period of time. However, identifying these thoughts and how they can be problematic to feelings and behaviours can enable individuals to challenge negative ways of thinking, leading to positive feelings and behavioural changes. It is possible for the therapy to take place on a one-to-one basis, with family members or even as a group depending on the issue and how the individual feels most comfortable.
CBT can be useful for dealing with issues such as:
• drug or alcohol problems
• eating disorders
• obsessive-compulsive disorder
• post-traumatic stress disorder
• Sexual and relationship problems
The emphasis on cognitive or behaviour aspects of therapy can vary depending on the issue. For example, the emphasis may be more towards cognitive therapy when treating depression, or the emphasis may be more towards behaviour therapy when treating obsessive compulsive disorder.
CBT is a practical therapy, which is likely to work best treating a specific issue as it focuses on particular problems and how to overcome them.
CBT sessions may consist of a number of activities, including:
• Coping skills
• Challenging certain thoughts
• Thought stopping
• Homework projects
• Training in communication
