Sandra Willett BABCP accredited
I am a qualified, accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) registered with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I have 10 years’ experience in the delivery of CBT in the NHS and private practice with adult clients treating panic disorder, social phobia, OCD, health anxiety, excessive worry (GAD) depression, trauma, low self-esteem and anger.
Life brings a constant process of growth, change and challenges sometimes when we least expect them and when we are least prepared for them. Many people can experience difficulties at some stage in their life. Sometimes these challenges may appear to be overwhelming, upsetting to a point where they interfere with our enjoyment in life. Impacting on everyday events, situations, relationships.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings ,physical sensations and actions are interconnected. Often becoming trapped in a vicious circle of distress impacting on functioning. CBT aims to identify how problems are maintained exploring the impact this has on our thinking, emotions, behaviour and physical response. CBT involves individuals taking an active part in therapy particularly in between sessions. This process gets you actively involved in your own treatment so that you can become your own therapist by applying new skills and techniques to make changes to ones well being.
What to expect
Choosing the right therapist and therapy is important to recovery. I welcome any questions you may have regarding my training and professional background. CBT is a short-term therapy between 6 -20 sessions, we will review progress at regular intervals. I am passionate about helping individuals improve their health and well-being. To move forward in life with reduction in distress and gain life back.
I offer a free 10-minute telephone consultation to assess your needs and help you decide if you would like to engage in therapy with no obligation to continue with the process.
Making that first step to change can often be daunting and change can mean different things to each of us.
Emphasis is placed on the therapeutic relationship, a safe environment to enable you to feel comfortable throughout the therapy journey. CBT is a collaborative experience where we will work towards your aims and goals. If you are considering CBT and want to know more, what it involves, why not give me a call or email. So that you can decide firstly if CBT approach is suitable for you and whether you would like us to work together.
