About me

I am a qualified Counsellor/Psychotherapist also specialising in CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) and Supervisor for trainee and qualified counsellors' clinical work.

I understand that there are times in our life when we need emotional support and help from others as life is demanding due to a crisis thrown at us, or life changes through divorce, bereavement, redundancy and much more.

When we ask for support and it is judgmental, offering little or no empathy, we can feel even more lost and unheard. We can become out of touch with ourselves and feel unable to truly explore our feelings so that we can make positive changes in our lives.

Drawing upon my professional and life experience, I aim to empower you to help resolve your issues by helping you explore your concerns in a safe and confidential counselling relationship to provide support that is suitable to your particular life circumstance.

Please call me for an initial free chat about how counselling can work for you.

Anxiety; Generalised Anxiety Disorder (where anxiety has continued for 6 months and over), Panic, Stress, Anxiety, Depression; Obsessive Compulsive Behaviours (OCD) (e.g. excessive cleaning, social media, Addiction: substance-misuse, social media, smoking/alcohol).

CBT works with negative thought processes to make them positive, lowers and/or manages anxiety and depression, helps be in touch with thoughts and feelings and undesired behavioural patterns to help make positive, desired life changes.

As my approach is integrative, according to your individual needs, I also use CBT with other therapies; Person Centred, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, Transactional analysis. I also use creative exercises such as role plays, writing down experiences thoughts and feelings, along with mindfulness exercises, relaxation techniques, meditation and visualization.

For beneficial therapy outcome the number of CBT sessions taken will depend upon individual needs. However an initial 6 sessions are recommended for positive changes to take place. This involves CBT tasks which I will introduce to give you tools to, for example manage anxiety symptoms, work with negative thought processes, be in touch with feelings and behavioural patterns to help make positive life changes.
