Jasmin Patel, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist- BABCP accredited, Psychologist
Sometimes things come up in life that can be difficult to manage and it can feel stressful and overwhelming. Being able to have someone to talk to can help with resolving difficulties and feeling better.
I provide a safe, confidential, warm and approachable space for children, teenagers and their families to help alleviate distressing feelings.

Getting started with therapy...
Sometimes it can feel a bit overwhelming especially if it's your first time, so here are a few simple steps to help get you started:
Give me a call or send an email. We can then set up an initial session to talk about what you would like to get out of therapy.
Next, if you're happy to continue we'll set up a second session, and arrange to see each other weekly/fortnightly.
