About me

Hello, my name is Kevin Reynolds and I'm a fully qualified and BABCP (British Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapies) accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I have extensive experience working with people with a wide range of difficulties, including Depression and all forms of Anxiety Disorders including:

- Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) - OCD - Phobias - Social Anxiety - Panic Attacks
- Health Anxiety

- Cogntive Behvioural Therapy for Couples

- Trauma / PTSD (CBT and/or EMDR)

-Acute and Chronic Depression.

(and other difficulties listed below)

I understand fully, how challenging therapy can be. It's a big step to contact a stranger and talk about personal difficulties. I have many years experience in this field and make every effort to help you to feel safe, respected, listened to, and understood. My client outcomes are very positive and satisfaction levels are very high. You can be assured of a professional service from a specialist CBT therapist. CBT can help you achieve your goals.

Feel free to call or email me. I offer a free telephone consultation at your convenience, with no obligation

If you're suffering with anxiety, depression, or any of the other difficulties I specialise in (listed below), CBT will give you the insight and skills to deal with this these problems. These are life skills, which help you to become your own therapist and not dependant on therapy. Most CBT is quite brief compared to other therapies and is the only therapy which is evidence based.

This means that there is a solid evidence base relating to the effectiveness of specialist CBT

I am a fully qualified and accredited CBT specialist. You will find me on the BABCP website, alongside other accredited CBT therapists. Always use a BABCP accredited CBT therapist to guarantee authentic training, experience and professional development.

Further information

How it works....

Free confidential consultation

You can access this free consultation to discuss your difficulties and I will answer any questions you may have. There is no obligation to enter therapy, this is purely to help you decide whether CBT may be right for you.

First session (assessment)

The first session of therapy will allow us to develop a shared understanding of the problem. This usually focuses on identifying how your thoughts, ideas, feelings, attitudes, and behaviours affect your day-to-day life. Together we can then decide on a treatment plan, with goals to work towards, and the number of sessions likely to be needed.

Ongoing sessions

Each session lasts 50 minutes. Typically, a session of therapy is once weekly to begin with, a course of CBT can be longer or shorter depending on the nature and severity of the condition. Some difficulties can be treated over 4 -6 sessions, other more complex issues may take longer.

Content and structure of therapy

You will be encouraged to take an active part in therapy, and will usually be given homework between sessions. If you have social anxiety, for example, you may be asked to keep a diary of your thoughts and behaviours which occur when you become anxious before, or during a social event. Further homework may be experimenting with alternative ways of coping which you have learned during therapy. The homework aspect of CBT is crucial in enabling us to understand what happens in real life situations and encourages you to experiment in between sessions, in order to get the most out of the therapeutic process and make the changes that are helpful for you.


No information discussed in therapy will be given to any other person or agency without consent from you. This includes information about whether or not you are using the service.
