About me

I am a qualified and accredited Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapist and counsellor, offering cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and counselling.

I offer CBT and counselling with adult individuals, couples and young people age 14+ irrespective of their background. I have over 10 years of experience supporting adults, couples and young in school, community, youth justice, as a Relate Counsellor and treating individual experiencing symptoms of depression and symptoms of an anxiety disorder. I also work with individuals experiencing self-esteem  challenges as a result of  their symptoms of depression and anxiety presentations.

I work with clients experiencing symptoms of depression and or symptoms of an anxiety disorder such as; Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), Social anxiety, Health anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Trauma Symptoms (PTSD) and Panic disorder.

The difference between CBT and counselling is, in CBT treatment we will work to help you develop and acquire new skills to help you feel better. We will plan and agree some task for you to do between sessions to develop the skills we learn in sessions. you will be offered reading material to help you understand and solve your problems, counselling might involve the client speaking and the therapist listening each session for you to find you own answers to your distress.

Talking therapy, especially Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy (CBT), is effective and useful for its problem-solving techniques and reputation as a tool for overcoming anxiety, depression and worries. Therapy is also a way to establish better emotional wellness for themselves, others and improve relationships.

Couple Counselling

Cognitive Behavioural Couples Therapy is a highly-structured approach for identifying, understanding and resolving unhealthy patterns of conflict, communication and emotional distress in close personal relationships. Unlike other forms of relationship therapy, provides an active problem solving approach to managing individual differences and developing a flexible, emotionally resilient and fulfilling partnership for the future.

Young people counselling age(14+)Children and Young People's counselling is for any young person who's having problems. Whether it is depression anxiety, other mental health concerns or issues with parents, peers or people at school. Many young clients report that they feel happier after they have engaged with counselling and that are better able to deal with their problems. In some cases, they were better able to concentrate at school or college, and get on better with their friends and family and engage better in social settings.
