Aylin Webb - CBT Psychotherapist, EMDR Therapist, Couple Counsellor, Life Coach
Corona virus update: I am still here to support you through the current pandemic restrictions with online video, real-time typing or phone appointments.
Life can get complicated at times, and leave us feeling depressed, anxious or even traumatised. We might feel overwhelmed with our negative thoughts and emotions. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help you acquire the skills to overcome emotional distress, work with your unhelpful thoughts & beliefs and feel happier, calmer, and more content.
I am a BABCP Accredited CBT Psychotherapist, EMDR Therapist (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), Couple Counsellor and clinical supervisor. I have been providing treatment for clients suffering from Depression, Anxiety & Worry, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic disorder, Childhood trauma, Phobias, Bereavement and relationship problems.
It is never too late to discover new perspectives that will help you have a more fulfilling life.
I am passionate about helping people and have been treating a huge variety of clients for many years. I am happy to cater for anybody in a safe and friendly environment, where together we can explore unhelpful thoughts and feelings in a confidential and non-judgemental manner.
Besides English, I also speak fluent Turkish and Danish.
I am a registered practitioner with AXA Health, Aviva, BUPA, Vitality Health, Cigna, Nuffield Health and WPA, and a member EMDR UK & Ireland as well as a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
At The Priory in Chelmsford, I specifically work with clients suffering from anxiety, trauma and depression.
"If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."- Wayne Dyer
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, also known as CBT, is an active psychotherapy that looks at the way our thoughts and feelings affect the way we behave.
There is a great deal of research evidence to show that CBT works effectively in treating depression. This research has been carefully reviewed by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
NICE provides independent, evidence-based guidance for the NHS on the most effective ways to treat disease and ill health. CBT is recommended by NICE for the treatment of anxiety disorders.
The number of CBT sessions you need depends on the difficulty you need help with. Often this will be between five and 20 weekly sessions lasting about 50-60 minutes each. CBT is mainly concerned with how you think and act now.
In the first couple of sessions, we will discuss your specific difficulties and set goals for you to achieve.
