Therapy for Anxiety and Depression
Many of us suffer with anxiety and/ or depression at some point in our lives. Sometimes it can have a significant impact on our quality of life and affect our relationships with family, friends or at work. At this point, therapy can be a valuable tool to help us develop new skills to manage anxiety, improve our confidence and make positive changes. CBT is the best evidence based treatment for effectively treating anxiety and depression.
I work with children, adolescents and adults who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (e.g. following road accidents), anxiety disorders (panic, general anxiety (excessive uncontrolled worry), social anxiety, phobias, ocd, relationship issues, depression, anger, survivors of early abuse, confidence and low self esteem issues. I also work with children and young people who are on the autistic spectrum.
A Bit About My Background
I have more than 20 years in the field of mental health as a practitioner and lecturer. After graduating with a degree in Health Psychology, I worked for some years in mental health supporting people with severe psychosis and personality disorders. I then continued to pass on my love of psychology and interest in mental health to students taking A level Psychology at college. Later I trained in counselling and then more specifically in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for children and adults, working as a High Intensity CBT therapist for social care, charities and the NHS.
I have a specialist interest in Compassion Focused Therapy. This is a scientific evidence based form of therapy to help people develop courage, wisdom, kindness and warmth within themselves to make positive changes. This approach is an integral part of my therapeutic practice.
