About me

Screen%20shot%202012-09-11%20at%2011.35.As a professionally qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, I understand that making the decision to attend for counselling can be a challenging one and I, therefore, provide my service in a discrete setting that ensures complete confidentiality and privacy.

I offer confidential counselling to clients experiencing conditions ranging from depression and severe anxiety to phobias and low self-esteem, from OCD and addictions to difficulties socialising with friends, from workplace stresses and unhappiness to anger.
Difficulties in relationships is an area that responds particularly well to CBT interventions and talking about your difficulties is the first step to improving the quality of life for yourself and those you are close to.
Couples who attend for counselling find the problem solving and task orientated emphasis of the CBT approach particularly helpful.
Please see below a full list of the conditions and problems with which I can help and treat.

I understand how, at times, problems can appear overwhelming and solutions difficult to find. Help is at hand. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a proven success based therapy which can be applied to many conditions and problems. Research has shown that CBT is the treatment of choice in many areas from depression and anxiety to phobias and substance abuse.

Solutions to many of these conditions and problems lie within us all; CBT is a highly effective therapy which will provide you with the tools and skills necessary to find and maintain your personal solution.

As a cognitive behavioural therapist, I have helped many clients gain the self-confidence and beliefs necessary to enable them to overcome the negative self-defeating behaviours that have caused much of their personal difficulties and distress. With 15 years working experience in the Health Service, I bring a wide range of knowledge and skills to my private practice.

Why Choose CBT?

Cognitive behavioural therapy identifies and lets you change your own unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour.

It will help you gain greater control over your moods and behaviour.

It will provide you with new skills to help face and deal with present and future difficult challenges in your life

Who can benefit from CBT?Screen%20shot%202012-09-11%20at%2011.41.

Anyone can benefit from cognitive behavioural therapy
as it is easily applied to many everyday situations.

Most importantly, you do not have to have been diagnosed with a particular condition to gain help from this form of counselling.

CBT is a results-based therapy and successful outcomes can be reached in 6-8 weeks of treatment. Some clients may require a longer period of treatment.

Both Adolescents and Adults respond particularly well to CBT and I provide confidential services to both these groups.

Cross Professional and Counselling Supervision

I provide counselling supervision for recently qualified counsellors and students.
I also provide supervision for individuals working in community, voluntary and Church-based organisations.

My aim as a supervisor is to provide a safe environment which will promote improved effectiveness as a professional and develop personal growth and self-care.

One to one and group supervision is available.
