Teaching as well as listening
I'm a therapist who specialises in Cognitive therapy. This means I focus on showing you how your mind works, the roots of your thoughts, and feelings and why you’re experiencing your negativity.
Once you fully understand your problem, I’ll teach you strategies to help you combat negative issues that are affecting your life, meaning that once you are finished, you will become your own therapist, knowing how to deal with your issues in your own way rather than someone else’s!
