Frequently Asked Questions:
Can you treat couples?
I am a trained cognitive behavioural couples therapist (CBCT) and can work with couples experiencing relationship difficulties as well as with individuals.
Can you help me if I have addiction or alcohol problems?
I have worked with addiction and alcohol problems, however if you are a heavy drinker or recreational drug user, you will get more benefit from the therapy I currently offer if you seek specialist treatment before you engage in CBT. I can help moderate users and can also help with referrals for specialist help.
