Seth Jackson BABCP - focussed, engaging, individualised CBT.
Hi I’m Seth. I’m an experienced therapist with over ten years work in the NHS. I have an excellent track record of helping clients from all walks of life with a wide variety of issues. My main therapeutic approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but I also draw on training in Interpersonal Therapy and Mindfulness.
I specialise in working with anxiety in the form of excessive worry (sometimes called Generalised Anxiety Disorder), anxiety about social situations, panic attacks, health anxiety, phobias, body image and post-traumatic stress. I also specialise in working with depression and themes which can underpin it like perfectionism, low self-esteem, problems in relationships and past traumas.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a brief but also highly effective treatment for a number of psychological problems and there is strong research evidence to support its use. CBT helps us to understand and then change our problems through identifying unhelpful patterns which involve our thoughts, behaviour, physical sensations and feelings. Some of these may have developed recently due to changes in life circumstances, whereas others may be a result of old patterns which are no longer helpful.
There is also a lot of good research evidence for Interpersonal Therapy. This approach is especially helpful if you are experiencing difficulties within relationships such as grief, conflict, isolation or big changes such as a break up.
As a therapist I will tailor treatment to suit your needs using a warm, engaging and collaborative approach . We would initially work together to understand the cycles that you have led you to feel distressed and to confirm that the therapy is suitable for you. Once we have made sense of your difficulties together we will draw on the research evidence, our experience and your strengths to find lasting solutions.
Treatment will also help you to become your own therapist by gaining new skills and the knowledge of when to apply them, and at the end of therapy we will find ways to keep what you have learned in place so you can continue to thrive.
I work within ethical guidelines and have regular supervision to ensure the best care. I offer a brief free phone consultation prior to in-person meetings. You are welcome to get in touch on the email above to find out more about how I can help.
