Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. When life is stressful human beings often feel anxious, panicky, angry or depressed. We may develop ways of coping with these difficult feelings such as: avoiding people or situations, being argumentative, cleaning or checking things excessively, trying to keep the peace by saying yes when we mean no, worrying about how we look or what others think of us, needing things to be perfect or just right, eating too little or too much and so on and so forth.
Talking things through is very important so we have a shared understanding of what you are struggling with. Then we can use CBT to help figure out what may be keeping the problem going and tackle these one by one. Working together in a respectful and compassionate environment, we can increase understanding and bring about helpful change.
CBT is a talking therapy with a practical approach and can be applied to us all because psychological problems can happen to anyone; they are often simply exaggerated versions of normal processes.If you wish to discuss whether CBT is the right way forward for you, I would be happy to do so with an initial telephone call free of charge.

I have over 15 years experience of working as a counsellor and CBT therapist for the NHS and private practice. Having previously worked as a Registered Nurse for 12 years, I also have a broad knowledge of medical conditions.
Over time, I have developed a special interest in low self-esteem. Low self-esteem can cause us to have negative opinions of ourselves and can cause us to worry excessively about how others perceive us. As such it can affect our whole lives. I am lucky enough to have facilitated an Improving Self-Esteem course as part of my NHS work for over 5 years. If you are often self-critical or left feeling bad about yourself, you may have low self-esteem and could benefit from CBT.
Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy are third wave CBT therapies and are proving highly effective in helping people manage psychological problems. Over the last couple of years, I have recently completed extensive training in both of these approaches and if helpful, can weave aspects into therapy.
