Thomas T. Italiano, BABCP accredited CBT Therapist
I am a psychologist, trained to offer you a safe and confidential space where you can make sense of emotional difficulties and find a way forward.
A range of issues, either out of the blue or long-standing, can get in the way of a fulfilling life. Unfortunately you might not be able to discuss what is troubling you with family or friends and this can leave you in an uncomfortable, often lonely position.
Therapy can support you if you are feeling stuck or things feel too much for you. It can help you develop a better understanding of your feelings and how they interact with your thoughts and behaviours. As you gain awareness of unhelpful behavioural patterns, you can choose more effective ways of dealing with your feelings and your relationships.Therapy can also help you explore the way you feel and what really matters to you. For example, in your life everything might seem right, yet you feel disconnected.
For more than 10 years I have been offering support to clients struggling with a broad range of problems, such as low self-esteem and low confidence, anxiety, low mood, stress, excessive worrying, relational and personality difficulties.
I had an extensive training in different therapeutic models including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), systemic and psychodynamic therapy. I predominantly practice from a CBT perspective, however mine is a flexible approach and gives priority to your goals and expectations. These will also determine the pace and length of therapy.
