About me

About Me

I am a qualified and accredited CBT Therapist with over 10 years experience working within specialist mental health services. I am also a qualified and accredited DBT Therapist working within the NHS, where I support individuals who are experiencing severe mental health problems.

I am passionate about helping people to manage their own difficulties using Cognitive and Behavioural approaches. I seek to develop empowering relationships based upon empathy and acceptance, and teach people the necessary skills to manage difficult emotions and move forward with their lives. I specialise in treating depression, PTSD, generalised anxiety, social anxiety, health anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, OCD, and Bipolar Disorder. 

About CBT

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, is one of the most research-based approaches and is ideal for those looking for a more structured approach. It has proven to be the most effective treatment for depression and a variety of anxiety issues such as excessive worry, panic attacks, social anxiety, health anxiety, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

CBT seeks to help you to understand your difficulties through examining the way you think about your difficulties (the cognitive part) and how you respond to your situation (the behavioural part). Your therapist will then teach you the skills to manage your situation and move forward.

About Valued Living

We are a team of NHS trained and experienced mental health professionals who believe that doing therapy the right way shouldn't include long waiting lists and restricted session amounts. We are passionate about delivering the highest quality of mental healthcare at affordable prices, which can be easily accessed around your existing commitments. 

We understand that it's difficult to know what type of therapy will be most helpful for your current difficulties. To make this easier, we rely upon our extensive knowledge and training to guide you through the process from your first point of contact. Get in touch to discuss how we can help you, today.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.
