I am an experienced therapist offering an exclusive setting for the provision of short and long term therapy for individuals and couples. Anger, anxiety and depression as well as fears, phobias and trauma are increasingly prevalant in today's world. I aim to work with you in ways that best suit your needs.
Short-term counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a solution-focused approach and is beneficial when addressing specific emotional and mental situations such as Anger Management, Anxiety and Panic disorders (including anticipatory anxieties such as agoraphobia and claustrophobia, flying, public speaking etc.) as well as Fears and Phobias; Bereavement and Loss; short-term Depression and the effects of Trauma. CBT looks at problems in a practical and systematic way that allows the client to look at their beliefs and thinking patterns and how these can be modified with the result that established patterns of behaviour are changed. You are helped to develop techniques to overcome your conflicts.
With longer term therapy we develop a close working relationship that aims to assist you in overcoming more deep seated problems such as Abuse, Eating disorders, Chronic Anxiety and Depression, Social and Behavioural difficulties, Relationship and Sexual issues; Chronic and debilitating Illnesses and many other situations.
