About me

Stressed? Anxious? Depressed? Feeling stuck?

My name is Owen Newman. I'm an experienced, accredited counsellor and psychotherapist specialising in cognitive behavioural therapy - a practical, solution focused approach to relationship, work, family and personal problems, and to overcoming the effects of stress, anxiety, frustration and depression.

If there is something about yourself, your relationships or your circumstances that you're struggling with, therapy can help you:

* Overcome negative cycles of thinking, feeling and behaviour.

* Navigate difficulties with other people in your personal, family or working relationships.

* Keep a healthy perspective in challenging situations.

* Focus on doing the things you really want instead of getting caught up in things that hold you back.

If you would like more information, I will be happy to talk to you or correspond with you in detail before you decide to book a session.

My way of working is proactive, collaborative and focused on you as an individual. Here you will find a supportive, accepting environment where we can work through your thoughts and feelings at your own pace and in a way that feels right for you. I will also take you through evidence based techniques that you can use to respond to problems and challenges in helpful ways.

I trained at King's College London University and at The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies London. I hold an honours degree in Philosophy, a Certificate in Counselling and three postgraduate diplomas in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: Diploma in CBT, Advanced Diploma in Integrative CBT, Advanced Diploma in RECBT with Distinction.

There are different types of CBT which can help you deal with problems in different ways. These include Rational Emotive Cognitve Behavioural Therapy (RECBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MBCBT), Cognitive Therapy (CT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). My approach is to integrate these different types of CBT in a way that suits your individual needs and preferences, and works for you.

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and I am DBS certified.
