About me

I am a fully qualified, experienced CBT Counsellor. My therapy is personalised to each individuals needs in order to attain goals and find solutions to presenting issues that may be affecting how you feel and behave in your life and relationships. I believe building trust in a safe environment is essential and lies at the heart of my therapy.  I believe that whatever the issue is, counselling can help you achieve greater balance and perspective in life.

I have worked with clients from teenage to senior citizens and from all different backgrounds and ethnicity.  I'm particularly experienced with Mental Health issues, Bereavement and Post Traumatic Stress.  However I still work with a range of different problems which you can see at the bottom of the page.

If you would like to talk to me and have an initial telephone consultation this can be made without charge.

What is CBT

CBT is a talking therapy which focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and behaviour. This helps to develop personal coping strategies that will target solving current problems and looks at practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis. CBT can also help with past issues if it is affecting your present problem. The concept of CBT is that your thoughts, emotions and actions are interconnected, causing you to get trapped in a cycle of negative thoughts and feelings making things worse.

Research shows that CBT can help amend a variety of psychological problems such as:

  • Anxiety Disorder
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Panic Disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
  • Insomnia
  • Eating disorders
  • Self Harming

CBT can also be affective with other difficulties such as low self-esteem, worry and anger.

What To Expect

CBT is a collaborative approach where we work together to discover the current problems and identify the goals you would like to work towards. In each session we will set an agenda and work together on the presenting issue (s) and i will help you to identify and challenge any unhelpful or negative thinking pattens and behaviour which maybe causing you difficulties. I work using the CBT model, but also integrate person-centred therapy and mindfullness, to provide a nurturing and caring setting to help you on your journey towards finding the answers to your questions and ultimately helping you to reach a successful outcome.
