About me

I'm an experienced, accredited counsellor and psychotherapist specialising in problems with anxiety, depression, compulsions, OCD, phobias, stress, anger management, self-confidence and motivation.

Is the way you're feeling having a negative impact on you, your relationships, your health or your work?

Do you find yourself acting or reacting in ways you don't want to but can't seem to change?

For a confidential conversation about your situation and how I can help, please call me on 07956 283 702 or email me at owen@owennewman.co.uk.

My approach is based in the tradition of cognitive behavioural counselling and psychotherapy (or CBT), providing a supportive and focused framework for you to change how you feel, think and act in response to problems and challenges.

Issues I can help with include: generalised anxiety, anxiety about health, anxiety about social situations, performance anxiety, panic attacks, persistent feelings of sadness or low mood, depression, relationship and intimacy issues, work-related stress, problems with anger or resentment, dealing with conflict or confrontation, insomnia, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias including agoraphobia, procrastination or lack of motivation, self-esteem or self-confidence issues and compulsive or addictive behaviours.

For more details, please call me on 07956 283 702, email me at owen@owennewman.co.uk or visit my website at www.owennewman.co.uk.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at King's College London University and at The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies London. I hold a BA (Hons) in Philosophy, a Certificate in Counselling and three postgraduate diplomas in CBT: a Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Counselling and Psychotherapy, and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Counselling and Psychotherapy.

The types of CBT that I specialise in are: Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Therapy (CT) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MBCBT).

These approaches are practical and evidence-based, meaning that they have been extensively researched, tested and shown to be very effective, usually in a short period of time.

I work by integrating these approaches in ways that will suit your individual needs and preferences.

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and I am DBS certified. In addition to my private practice, I also work with a mental health charity.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
