My Therapies

CBT, Cognitive behavioural therapy CBT is effective in reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression. It focuses on how your thoughts (cognition's) influence your feelings and behaviour. It recognises and addresses negative thoughts that maintain the problems you encounter. The aim of CBT is for you to have healthier thoughts feelings and behaviours, working mainly on present issues, but acknowledging they may be related to past experiences also.  This therapy usually requires working with 8-20 sessions depending on the issues.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends cognitive behavioural therapy for Binge Eating Disorder (BED), bulimia, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

EMDR, Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing. EMDR Is recommended by The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) for the treatment of trauma and is gathering more evidence for the use in a variety of other anxiety disorders. This usually involves working within 12- 24 sessions.

Integrative counselling/Psychotherapy combines therapies to suit your preferences and the issues you encounter. Counselling is a more supportive therapy that may be needed while going through a difficult time in your life. It considers your personal experiences and choices. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you advance your self-understanding, focusing on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It considers your ideas, feelings and relevant moments in your life and how past issues may be affecting your  present situation. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or discover suitable ways of managing. This therapy usually involves more open ended sessions or longer term therapy to work on issues and may integrate CBT & EMDR.
