Anneliese Lloyd - Thrive CBT (Registered MBACP) MSc, PgDip (CBT)
I provide a confidential counselling service based in Merthyr Tydfil. I am a fully qualified BACP accredited CBT therapist (level 7). I gained accreditation in 2016 and have worked in a range of mental health and support settings for 15 years, including the NHS.
My approach is underpinned with empathy, understanding and warmth. We can work together to identify the problems you have been facing, discuss strategies for addressing them and find solutions. We do this mainly by working on the beliefs you hold about yourself and the situations you find problematic.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an effective approach to issues involving all types of anxiety and depression. It can also be an effective aid to managing stressful life events, every day stresses and can facilitate growth and motivation.
I work with a wide range of issues including depression, low self esteem, stress, anxiety, obsessions, obsessive compulsive disorder, body dysmorphia, phobias, health/chronic illness concerns, insomnia, relationship problems, work related issues, bereavement and identity issues.
Everyone is different, therefore my approach is tailored specifically to you, your needs, strengths and issues.
CBT is considered to be a short term and cost effective therapy. In the first session, we will talk about you, the issues you have been experiencing and how I can help. During the sessions, you will learn to become your own therapist and learn techniques that you can use long after the therapy has ended. Sessions last an hour and are usually on a weekly basis at first. Usually, after 6 sessions we review whether you'd like to continue therapy and the frequency of sessions. However if there are any issues or you'd like to leave therapy, we can talk about this at any time and I will help with this as much as possible.
