Jill Paine - Psychological Therapy and Counselling
I am a Cognitive Analytic Therapist with many years experience working within NHS Psychological Therapy Services with a background in Occupational Therapy and relationship counselling.
I always offer an initial 30 minute appointment at no charge so that we can discuss what issues you would like to address, whether you feel comfortable talking to me, what the therapy or counselling will entail and the number of sessions likely to be helpful.
Cognitive Analytic Therapy is a well researched and evidence based talking therapy with excellent outcomes for a wide range of issues. It is fundamentally a relational model and looks at the patterns of thinking and behaving we develop as we progress through life and which can sometimes contribute to relationship difficulties and mental health problems.
My approach is to work alongside you to create a joint understanding of your difficulties and use your own strengths as well as the scaffold of therapy to make changes and find ways of getting your relationships, career and life back on track.
