About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and trained CBT therapist and counsellor. I have worked for the NHS and also private services with adults who are suffering from the following problems: depression, general anxiety disorder, social anxiety, health anxiety, OCD, panic disorder, PTSD, stress, ADHD, autism, LTC, low self-esteem and specific phobias. I use a combination of CBT and counselling skills to treat these issues but also offer the space in sessions for clients to explore their current difficulties and emotional problems. I treat each client as a unique individual and unlike other services I tailor the treatment and number of sessions to suit the client.

Practice description

I practice CBT therapy alongside counselling which is based on the person centred approach. I look at a client's cognitive processes (thoughts, images, memories, assumptions, beliefs and memories), avoidant/safety behaviour and the distressing emotional reactions which can occur as a result of negative core beliefs developed in our earlier life which can contribute to current difficulties. I work collaboratively with my clients to set about changing this through the use of CBT tools/ interventions and counselling. I accept self payments but I am also signed up with the following private health insurers: aviva, vitality and AXA ppp.

My first session

In our first session I will carry out an assessment to get an overview of the current situation and problem. This includes looking at mood and anxiety levels. If I feel it might be of benefit to the client I will carry out some questionnaires to understand in more detail what is happening for the client. Additionally telling you a bit about myself and also beginning to build our therapeutic alliance. I aim to always be warm, empathic and approachable with my clients.
