I offer private CBT based counselling from a safe office in a central Bangor location (BT20). Assessment sessions are available at short notice and I work hours that will hopefully suit you, offering both weekend and evening appointments.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is highly effective for the treatment of low mood and anxiety and I believe the skills CBT teaches can help anybody solve problems, achieve goals and improve their quality of life.
I aim to help people better understand their current situation, why they think and act as they do so we can collaboratively plan a better way in which to deal with situations in the future. I am very passionate about educating people on the symptoms of anxiety or mood disorders and simplifying things that you may currently be experiencing that are causing great upset.
