About me

I am an accredited and very experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT Therapist) and Supervisor, having worked in a range of settings and locations. I provide online therapy sessions available to clients worldwide.  

As well as practicing as a CBT therapist myself,  I also have an online therapy service with a growing number of therapists who are highly experienced in therapies such as EMDR, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Counselling, Mindfulness, Long Term Health conditions, Perinatal CBT and Health Psychology. We are proud to have award winning and published therapists within our team and I feel confident that as a team we have the right therapist to meet your therapeutic needs.

When you make contact, we will assess which therapist best meets your needs in terms of specialisms / expertise and availability and we will then arrange a complimentary call or a full initial assessment with your therapist to make sure you feel happy and confident to go ahead with therapy. 

Our is to create a warm and inviting space where people feel safe to explore and work on difficulties. We believe therapy is a very personal experience and whilst we draw on evidence based approaches to inform the work we do with clients, we also tailor this to the individual to ensure you get the very most out of therapy and achieve your goals.

We work with a wide range of difficulties with a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach, including Anxiety, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety, Health Anxiety, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Trauma, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder / Attacks, Agoraphobia, Specific Phobias, Depression, Low self-esteem, Assertiveness issues, Chronic Pain, Long-term health conditions (including Long Covid), Sleep issues and Stress. We are experienced at assessing for a wide range of issues and using research driven models to work to help people effectively recover and go on to live lives without the constraints of these difficulties. Whether you already know what you are struggling with or are unsure we can work this out together and find  a path to a happier healthier life for you.

Finding the right therapist for you is key, and this can be overwhelming with so many people to choose from, so we offer a free introductory call to ensure you feel completely comfortable that we are the right fit for you. 

We also offer supervision to qualified CBT Therapists as well as Trainee's, and will soon be able to offer EMDR supervision also.

I really invite you to get in touch and we can talk through your difficulties, ensure you are happy to proceed and ideally start working to improve things for the better straight away. We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you soon.

Further information

I work online via microsoft teams and get great feedback about this way of working - it can be a lot more personal than you may imagine and people find it very convenient and easy to access from anywhere in the world. 

I really like to share resources with clients and work together on creating a resource pack which you can then use for years to come to help you on your journey. 

I am very flexible with ongoing support for clients and want this to feel like a therapy which fits into your life and is adapted to your needs now and in the future.
