If you change Nothing....Nothing will change....CBT and EMDR are about change....changes to the way we think/perceive our-self, others, the world and changes to our reactions. if you think you could benefit from change and need some help, then I am more than happy to lend a caring hand...so contact me...
I am a qualified and registered Cognitive Behaviour Therapist and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)Therapist. I work in private practice and in the NHS and provide therapy to adults 17+ years. I have been a therapist since 2009. Prior to this I worked as a registered mental health nurse in adult psychiatry.
My areas of interest are childhood trauma and PTSD but I am also skilled to work with patients who struggle with OCD, Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Health Anxiety, Long-term Health Conditions and Depression.
I can provide CBT/EMDR in German and Polish language and via Skype if desired. I am registered and accredited by the BABCP.
A little about me: I have been described as approachable, honest and very caring. I have over the years collected a lot of life experiences some good some not so good.
The therapy I provide is structured and very goal orientated without lacking warmth and empathy, but it is about change and teamwork, us working together for you to reach your full potential with simple strategies.
Availability: Saturday mornings, in the week from 5pm until 8pm.
To get started: Just contact me via phone or email so that we can have a quick chat and get a sense of each other and to decide if we want to work together.
If yes...then we will book the assessment appointment which will be a full hour.
From this then we can both decide if we want to meet for regular sessions or to leave it at this session
To me the quality of the relationship is the most important part of therapy. If that is not right nothing will work. Therefore contact me so that we can find out how we get along.

What is CBT? Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.
What is EMDR? Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a fairly new, nontraditional type of psychotherapy. It's growing in popularity, particularly for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD often occurs after experiences such as military combat, physical assault, rape, or car accidents.
