Hi, I am an integrative therapist which means that I use different modalities of counselling depending on the clients needs, specialising in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) in the treatment of;
- Relationship Problems
- Low Self-Esteem
- and many more.
In a safe, secure and confidential environment I will facilitate you in gaining an understanding of your problems through identifying your thoughts,moods, behaviours, and physical reactions in small situations as well as during major events in your life. You will learn to test the meaning and usefulness of different thoughts you have during the day and change the thinking patterns that keep you locked into dysfunctional moods, behaviours or relationship interactions that are not serving you. In addition you will learn how to make changes in your life when your thoughts are alerting you to problems that need to be solved, in the hope that at the end of your therapy you will go on to become your own therapist.
