About me

Welcome to my page!

I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural therapist, specialized in Rational Emotive Behaviour therapy (REBT), which is a leading CBT approach.

During this type of therapy you will learn how to change your unhelpful feelings and behaviours through exploring your thinking about past, present or future life events.

Rather than focusing on what is outside your control you will learn valuable tools and techniques on how to help yourself by changing what is within your control.

We can work together on relationship issues, self-esteem/confidence issues and emotions such as depression, anxiety, stress, anger, shame and guilt, jealousy and so on.

CBT is a time-limited therapy and often within 6-8 sessions you will see significant results.

My goal as a therapist is for you to leave therapy having built a tool-kit for life and having the confidence and know how to help yourself in the future and cope effectively with life's challenges. Ultimately, you will become your own CBT therapist.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
