Dr Nicholas Cook
Overcome addiction, stress, anxiety and depression.
Right now you might find it almost impossible to believe life will work out for the best. Sometimes change just comes along but most of the time it's up to us to get started. That's tough at the best of times. Maybe staying as you are just seems easier or, perhaps, you've now reached a point where you want to change but don't know how to go about it. Starting out can seem daunting, a risk even. That's where therapy comes in.
I have helped many people cope with stress, overcome anxiety, beat depression and reduce their drinking before it took over their lives completely. Indeed, I've helped those who have lost everything family, friends, health and jobs to take back control and begin the journey of recovery.
I use proven CBT techniques that will help you achieve renewed health; they are not overnight cures but well tested paths to recovery. Importantly, you'll no longer have to struggle alone. We will work side by side to overcome your stress, anxiety, depression or alcohol problems.
