About me


Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy.

Have you been referred for or recommended to have CBT by your GP or by a Health Care Professional?

Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy is an evidenced based approach to psychological and physical health problems.

It is recommended in the NICE guidelines (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) for psychological and physical health problems.

It is important to ensure your CBT Practitioner is appropriately trained, qualified and practicing in CBT.

At CBT Peak and Dales I will offer you an assessment appointment in the first instance.

From there I will recommend the number of treatment sessions required- based on the evidence base for the treatment of the problems identified.

Sessions can be delivered face to face in the private clinic room or in some cases it can be conducted on-line or telephone options as well.

I will work together with you - collaboratively in a planned, structured and time limited approach. Generally appointments would be once per week.

CBT is a very practical approach and there will be things to do between sessions during the week -agreed upon together in the treatment session.

Please contact me via the CBT Peak and Dales website;

or by phone number there if you want to have a chat about any of the above or ask any further questions.
