About me

Do you struggle with Anxiety, Depression, or Low Self-Esteem?

Hi, I'm Tom, a CBT Therapist specializing in helping individuals overcome anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. With 9 years of experience, I understand the common challenges many face and provide a supportive, non-judgmental space for you to navigate them.

Feeling stuck? Many individuals experience:

  • Fear of Rejection: This can hinder taking risks, connecting with others, and achieving goals.
  • Fear of Failure: The constant worry about failing can prevent trying new things and reaching full potential.
  • Avoiding Challenges: Stepping outside your comfort zone can feel overwhelming, but it's crucial for growth.
  • Trouble Communicating Needs: This can lead to frustration and misunderstandings in relationships.

CBT therapy can help you:

  • Develop Confidence: Learn to challenge negative thoughts and build a strong sense of self-worth.
  • Improve Relationships: Develop healthier communication skills and build stronger connections.
  • Back Yourself: Gain the courage to take risks and pursue your goals.
  • Stop Letting Fear Hold You Back: Learn anxiety management tools to overcome obstacles.


Are you ready to break free from feeling stuck and discover the person you were meant to be?

I'm a CBT therapist who empowers individuals to overcome fear of change, embrace their authentic selves, and build unshakeable confidence. Together, we'll navigate creating genuine friendships and lasting connections where you can truly be yourself. It's time to stop just existing and start thriving – let's unlock your full potential!
