CBT therapist specialising in Anxiety Low Self-Esteem & OCD

About me

Hi, are you stressed or anxious, are you feeling overwhelmed, are you unable to sleep through worry, would you like to make sense of it all, then I can help you. I am a female fully qualified CBT Counsellor/Therapist offering friendly and confidential support through difficult times in a safe, non-judgemental space where you can talk freely, be heard and explore. I am also an experienced Global work/life coach, an Agile Coach/trainer and mentor, I am also an approved Therapist with Anxiety UK. I use Zoom,  telephone and face to face in the Chichester area.

I care deeply that we suffer when our life isn't working as we'd wish, but don't know how to change or do things differently. I'm here to help if this is you, and I believe we all have the ability to change if we want to do so.

We work together to develop a deeper understanding of your issue, how the problem is maintained and how it impacts your life. I then share insight, skills and techniques you can use to empower and maintain your change and achieve your goal.

With my core training being CBT, I view issues from a starting point of how you think and behave. I then look to address recurring and unhelpful thought and behaviour patterns.

I offer are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT), Solution Focus Therapy, Compassionate Focused Therapy (CFT) and Work/Life and Leadership Coaching.

We can work within just one approach or incorporate others. As I always work on a personal level with you, I can combine and integrate approaches in a tailor-made way that is cost effective and dynamic.

My specialist areas are:

  • Overcoming Anxiety, Stress management
  • Building Self Confidence, Self Acceptance & Self Compassion
  • Fighting Depression & Low Mood
  • Anger Management
  • Leadership Coaching
  • Life Coaching

Prior to training as a counsellor and coach, I worked in demanding, high-stress environments in the corporate world and understand work-related stress and pressures of chasing work-life balance. In addition to my therapeutic and counselling skills, I am an experienced mentor, coach and trainer, trained in and utilised these skills in a variety of roles.
