About me and my therapy practice
CBT is a type of 'talking' psychotherapy that research continues to show to be effective in the treatment of a wide range of difficulties. CBT is based on the idea that the way we feel is affected by our thoughts and beliefs and how we behave. In sessions we aim to identify and change unhelpful, self-defeating patterns of behaviour and thinking.
CBT is also a collaborative type of therapy where sessions are enhanced by exercises and strategies the client can learn and use daily to help combat dysfunctional thinking leading to problems. Clients often feedback that they enjoy feeling 'in control' again and this type of counselling facilitates that sense of being able to 'cope' and problem solve effectively.
As well as working one to one with clients from a wide range of backgrounds, I have experience Lecturing in Psychology and Counselling across different therapeutic approaches and Organisations. I am an approved tutor for the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body.
I also develop specifically designed training and education packages for community organisations and groups. I recently helped integrate CBT strategies into a new programme for Faith Based Counselling which was awarded by the United Millennium Award Scheme in 2011.
