You are browsing this website because you are considering therapy for yourself or a loved one. Unfortunately many of us put this off or are hesitant for a number of reasons and try to “just get on with it”. This can be a strategy that works for a limited time only. It is “normal” and helpful to talk about how we are feeling, so don’t put it off.
I offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with an integrative approach in a safe environment and will work collaboratively with you to develop strategies, tools and techniques to help you manage your difficulties and improve your life.
CBT works from the perspective that our thoughts, behaviour, mood and physical symptoms are connected. Sometimes we can fall into unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving, trapping us in an unhelpful cycle. CBT can be helpful in the management of mood difficulties by exploring and changing the way we think about a situation and the way we behave.
I chose to become a CBT Therapist because of the clear evidence that it works. I am available for individual CBT for the treatment of a variety of difficulties including general anxiety, social anxiety, health anxiety, depression, panic, phobias, trauma and low self esteem.
