About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my page. You may be here because you are feeling anxious or uncertain about the future right now? Maybe you feel a bit stuck, fed up or things may not be working out as you would like? I would like to help you.

As a qualified and experienced CBT therapist, I specialise in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). This therapy is grounded in the idea that people generally want to do well in life, however, sometimes irrational or unhelpful thinking can get in the way and stop us from achieving our goals. With this in mind, REBT is a practical and action-orientated approach to dealing with cognitive, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Working together, I will help you to identify the things you are unhappy with and help you to learn how to separate the stories you tell yourself from those that are genuine. I can help you find healthier coping strategies and learn new skills and techniques on how to manage changes in your life effectively.

By combining a variety of therapeutic approaches, I will help you to identify, challenge and change the unhelpful thoughts and behaviours you may have and I will support you in making positive and lasting changes in your life. You will learn new tools and skills on how to create a healthy life balance and essentially become your own therapist.

I offer you a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate space to explore different thoughts, behaviours and emotions. For individuals, I can help with anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, and more.

Choosing the right therapist for you is an important decision. I offer an initial telephone conversation to get an understanding of the problem you wish to work on. After this, we can both decide if we are a good fit and discuss how we could work together. If you are happy to proceed, regular sessions will be arranged.

Accessibility

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.
