About me and my therapy practice
I'm a qualified CBT Therapist (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Integrative Counsellor and I help adults and adolescents to get out of stuck, negative emotional states such as Anxiety, Depression or Low mood, Anger and low self-confidence. I'm trained to work with a broad range of psychological health challenges including; Anxiety, Panic attacks, Depression, Insomnia, Agoraphobia, overwhelming feelings, Phobias, OCD, IBS, low self-worth and confidence, to name but a few. My approach is both adaptive and solution orientated and works best for people who want to change how they are feeling, thinking and behaving using a range of CBT models.
My approach is compassionate and gentle, but also active and interventionist to empower you with knowledge, tools and strategies to identify and change destructive mindsets that impact so greatly on our wellbeing. After a thorough assessment, I will teach you tools and strategies that you can use for life to manage difficult emotions.
I currently work with clients using Zoom, Skype or telephone which works really well for this type of therapy. Face to face appointments can be arranged if this is preferred. We will work at your own pace and I will adapt to you, bringing in a range of different CBT approaches depending on what will be most helpful for you (including EMDR for trauma).
I have a private practice which I run 2 days a week and the remaining time I work freelance as a Sessional CBT Therapist for the Priory.
For my private practice, I am currently working online mainly using Zoom, Skype, Microsoft Teams but face to face sessions can be arranged if needed (private room in Deal, Kent).
My first session
I offer a 20 minute free consultation so that you can find out more about how I work and I can find out more about you and the issue(s) you want to work on. From there you can decide if you feel we are a good fit.
In our first session I will explain more about how the therapy works, confidentiality and other important boundaries and we will form a working agreement. From there I will ask a range of questions so that I can get a full picture of you (your background, any previous counselling/therapy, any medication, the current challenges you are facing etc) to enable a thorough assessment. And then together we will come up with a problem list and agree which one to work on first.
