About me

CBT and Therapy Hub Birmingham

I offer evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with components of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) in treating common mental health problems such as low mood, anxiety and trauma specialising in treating children, adolescents and adults.

Therapies we offer

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on recognising how thoughts and feelings can influence behaviour. Our physiological state is also linked to our emotions and our thoughts.

Within therapy Individuals learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on their behaviour enabling them to feel more satisfied with their lives.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) is an evidence-based treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Psychological difficulties may be present as a result of difficult life experiences not being stored in the memory properly and therefore being blocked or not having been processed. These experiences may present themselves as either flashbacks or nightmares.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) processes can alter the way these traumatic memories are stored within the brain, making them easier to manage and causing you less distress.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT uses three approaches for individuals to learn how to notice their thoughts, feelings, physiological sensations and memories that have been feared or avoided.

Mindfulness – Being in the present moment and diffusion techniques.

Acceptance - Accepting the thoughts as a thought, an acknowledgement and willingness to allow experiences to be there.

Values – identifying the importance of what gives our life meaning and purpose.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) For Children and Adolescents

Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT) for adolescents and young people has developed over the last few years, the aim of CBT with adolescents and young people is to challenge unhelpful behavioural patterns by identifying negative thought processes and replacing this with alternative helpful thoughts and positive changes in behaviour.

Children and adolescents learn self-help techniques, increasing their self esteem resulting to improved performance at school, home and in social situations.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in Schools

Would you feel your school benefit from having a service that helps manage with pupils anxiety?

I currently work as a CBT therapist contracted to work within a school and has her own private practice where she provides one to one therapy to children, adolescents and adults.

The role in schools involves working alongside the Headmaster and pastoral care services supporting children with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, anger and defiant behaviour. Evidence based interventions are used offering flexibility to each child’s needs.

If you believe you school could benefit from this service, please do contact us.
