Are you one of the 1 in 4 adults who suffers with anxiety and depression every year? Anxiety is a normal emotion that can become problematic. Depression can be closely linked to this.
Do you tend to worry excessively about anything and everything?
Do you experience heart palpitations, sweating and nausea when faced with crowds or social situations?
Are you bothered by intrusive thoughts or memories that pop into your mind and cannot be ignored?
Is perfectionism causing a problem in your day to day life?
Do you lack confidence and constantly put yourself down?
Do you feel a lack of motivation is stopping you from enjoying life?
These are all symptoms of common anxiety disorders and depression that I can help with.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidenced based, structured approach to managing anxiety and depression. By looking at the connections between the way you think, feel and behave we aim to understand what is maintaining the problem and find new more helpful ways of thinking and behaving that will reduce distress.
I bring to our sessions a warm and empathic style that includes a level of professionalism and realism that helps you to work towards your therapy goals.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked in mental health services both within the NHS and charity sector since completing my degree in Psychology and Social Anthropology in 2008.
In 2011 I began to specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. My focus has largely been working with clients with anxiety and depression. Further to my formal qualifications, I have completed a number of continuing professional development trainings.
