COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY equips you with powerful tools to change the way you think and feel and talking about your problems in a warm professional setting is the first step in feeling better. The type of CBT I offer is called ACT and helps us change our attitude towards our thoughts and feelings.
Cognitive behavioural therapy is the therapy of choice within the NHS because it has a strong base of evidence proving that it works. CBT can work much more quickly than some more traditional forms of therapy.
CBT is shown to be as effective as medication in helping many conditions, furthermore the changes last, I couple this with Mindfulness and NLP to help you change and start enjoying your life

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
