I am a cognitive behavioural therapist and counsellor with an independent practice working from my home in Motherwell.
I offer a safe, non-judgemental, compassionate and confidential space to talk about your problems, issues or challenges. I will work with you to set goals and provide you with the tools and techniques to help you achieve them.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking based therapy which is recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) to help treat depression, anxiety disorders and other mental, emotional and physical health issues. Although CBT is my main approach, elements of other types of psychotherapy may be incorporated to suit your individual needs.
CBT involves working together to identify what is keeping you ‘stuck’ in unhelpful thinking or behaviour patterns and then agreeing on strategies to change these in order to improve the way you feel and meet your goals. It focuses on your current problems and equips you with tools and techniques to cope with them both now and in the future.
I work within the ethical framework of COSCA and BABCP.
