Hello and thank you for visiting my page. You may be here because you are feeling stuck, fed up or things may not be working out as you would like. I would like to help you.
I am a qualified and experienced CBT therapist specialising 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 to make positive and lasting changes in your life.
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.
