I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (BABCP). Since 2011 I have worked in NHS primary care services and universities with people struggling with depression and anxiety problems.
In my private work, I work in a relaxed setting near the city centre together with you in a warm and collaborative way using strategies that are evidence-based to promote wellbeing. This means that together we will gain insight into your problems and help you make changes using therapeutic interventions that have been found in research studies to be effective at helping people overcome their problems and distress. As well as CBT, I am also trained in solution-focused and compassion focused therapy to promote wellbeing and use these in my CBT sessions.
If you have hit a point in your life where you've found yourself overwhelmed and stressed or feeling down, depressed and hopeless or you suspect you might have an anxiety related problem such as panic, procrastination, OCD, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or just feel that you are struggling to live the life you hoped to, then please do get in touch with me for an initial free consultation.
