Amy Taylor - Calmer Minds Psychotherapy
You may have come across my profile looking to make some changes in your life perhaps? If so, maybe I can help you?
My name is Amy Taylor and I specialise in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, commonly known as CBT. It consists of looking at connections in our lives that are made with our thinking, moods and behaviour.
CBT is a rapidly expanding new source of therapy that encourages positive changes by learning new cognitive skills to tackle emotional and behavioural difficulties.
As your therapist, I can offer you myself, a warm, genuine, kind and easy person to talk to. For me, every relationship in therapy is really important in having the space and freedom to be yourself and is an important aspect of my work in building trust and openness.
Together, we will be able to understand what changed for you and work together in finding solutions. Exploring our experiences, good and bad, learning new skills can help you to continue building positive change in other areas your life in future during and after therapy.
