Hi my name is Pam Fitzpatrick and I am a fully qualified and professional psychotherapist in the branch of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). At the core of my work is warmth, empathy, and helping people feel fully supported throughout their individual therapy process.
My clinics are predominantly based around South Wales however with current internet technology I work with people situated all across the UK, and Worldwide.
I am experienced in working with the following difficulties: chronic anxiety and depression disorders including social anxiety, panic attacks, generalised anxiety, OCD, pure obsessional thoughts, PTSD, and all types of depression and stress related issues.
In addition to working with these difficulties, I am also a CBT specialist who is very passionate in supporting people with chronic fatigue and chronic pain conditions such as CFS/M.E, Fatigue, Vestibular Dysfunctions, and Chronic Pain Conditions such as Fibromyalgia and Migraine. I have very specialised training in rehabilitation strategies that are proven to be very effective for the management of these types of chronic health conditions.
Generally counselling is designed to help you explore the things in life that have, or are currently causing you distress. There is no issue too big or too small and I offer a very safe, confidential, and warm environment to explore these current difficulties.
We will usually start with an initial assessment session that lasts around 80 minutes where we gain a deeper understanding of the issues and difficulties that you are currently experiencing. We will then look at your therapy goals which might look at coping and management of your current difficulties. We will also explore the potential for your recovery, and during this session I will also fully explain Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and how I would plan to support you moving forward.
After this initial assessment session, we will normally meet weekly and agree a number of sessions that would be required to help you reach your therapy goals or recovery.
If you would like to call me for a chat about the potential for therapy you can contact me on 07960552669. Please leave me a message if required, and I will return your call as soon as I can. Alternatively you can email me on email@example.com. or if you enquiry is of an urgent nature and would like to book an initial appointment ASAP, then you can call Cyncoed Consulting Rooms and book directly in to my Wednesday clinic on 029 2076 4611.
