Yvette Winstone BSc (hons) Psych,PG Dip Counselling (CBT), MBACP
Life is fast paced and can be stressful, many of us experience difficulties in which we may need help with, and by reading this you have taken that first step.
I like to work with people to overcome their difficulties and to start living life to the full again, focussing on well-being.
I have a range of experience working with children and adults and I have previously worked for five years in supported housing with service-users who have complex mental health problems. I also worked for one year working as a voluntary Counsellor for Mind, and successfully completed a three-year degree in psychology and counselling including researching and writing a dissertation on mental illness and stigma.
Couples therapy CBCT
Often a couple can face struggles and conflict. I can offer Cognitive Behavioural couples therapy, with the main focus being Intervention and prevention. Here I will help the couple to explore what is going on in their relationship and teach them new communication skills and techniques, to hopefully put their relationship back on track. (CBCT) is a highly efficacious approach for assisting couples experiencing relationship distress.
If you feel I can help you please contact me for a chat about your needs.
I work In the Bridgend and Swansea areas.
I am happy to answer any enquiries and questions you may have.
