About me

I have significant experience and interest in working with people who are finding it difficult to cope with life for a variety of reasons. We often do not talk enough about what is troubling us until our problems threaten to overwhelm us. I believe in the healing power of talking therapies and would recommend this approach to anyone who is experiencing stressful life events. I offer an empathetic, non judgemental approach and will guide and assist you to achieve a positive resolution to difficulties.

I am a trained and experienced in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which seeks to explore the links between negative thoughts and how this affects our behaviour. This type of therapy looks at your current problems, identifies core beliefs and offers practical ways to improve your state of mind.

How Counselling Can Help You

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been proven to be effective in treating a variety of conditions such as anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, sleep problems, panic disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, amongst others.

What to Expect in your First Session

During your initial session I will explore with you what brought you to therapy and what your goals are i.e. to be less anxious, to manage social situations, to decrease stress levels, improve confidence. This sets a focus for the following sessions and also ensures that we work together to achieve your goals, whatever they are.

Further information

We often take care of our physical health and ignore our emotional health without recognising that the two are closely linked. Ongoing research has shown very positive outcomes from this type of treatment and many GP's will refer patients as part of their overall treatment plan. Providing a safe, non judgemental space to talk about problems is something that I think is essential to overall health and wellbeing.

North American culture has embraced therapy as an approach of choice when personal difficulties arise and I am looking forward to seeing this develop here.
