Amanda Cofek CPsychol
Mind Garden Therapy
56 London Street
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist specialising in a short term focused approach to counselling and I also offer longer term therapy when appropriate.
We are all individuals and I believe that no one therapeutic approach fits all. For this reason I integrate the models of therapy in which I have been trained to suit the needs of the individual. I also offer a cognitive behavioural approach (CBT) for difficulties for which research has shown it is an effective treatment, for example for anxiety disorders.
Coming into therapy can feel daunting, and it is important that you feel at ease and are able to speak freely about what is troubling you. At a first appointment I aim to gain a clear understanding of your difficulties, what you would like from therapy and to discuss how I can help you.
I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, low mood, anger difficulties, social anxiety, travel anxiety, panic disorder, OCD, low self-esteem, assertiveness, loss, relationship difficulties, work-related problems and stress.
