Dr Thomas T. Italiano, Clinical Psychologist & Cognitive Behavioural Therapist
Room 42, Cannon Drive
People seek therapy for different reasons. Work related stress, relationship difficulties, losses, anxiety and depression can hinder our mental as well as our physical wellbeing. At times it is difficult to discuss our feelings with family or friends and we find ourselves stuck in an uncomfortable place.
I am a chartered clinical psychologist, trained to deliver a safe, reliable and effective psychological therapy. With an extensive experience in using talking therapy, I offer clients a safe space to reflect on what troubles them and find a way forward.
I predomintly work from a CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) perspective. This is a collaborative and flexible approach, tailored on clients’ needs, pace and circumstances Therapy can help people develop an understanding of their difficult feelings and how these might be maintained by unhelpful thinking and behavioural patterns. Collaboratively, the client and I then find alternative ways to relate to his or her thoughts and feelings, choosing and practicing more helpful and fulfilling behaviours.
Psychological therapy can also help clients achieve a better understanding of themselves and explore why, even when things seem to be in the right place, they might feel unsatisfied or disconnected.
Our First Session
We will use the first session to discuss your current difficulties and your expectations for therapy. It will be an opportunity to assess whether we can work well together and whether my approach suits your needs for therapy. If you are not happy or sure, there is no obligation to take treatment forward any further.
