I am a trained Human Givens Psychotherapist. Human Givens Therapy uses a wide range of different therapies, including CBT, to provide counselling and therapy in the minimal amount of sessions possible. I may see a client for up to 3 or 4 times, which is about as much additional resource required for them to move on effectively with their next life chapter. A bit more time is also fine, if it is found to be helpful, in order to get back to healthy living.
Below are some of the areas that I am trained to help a client who may be experiencing any of the following:
stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, trauma, OCD, phobias, self-harming issues and also relationship difficulties.
I also offer Life Coaching.
