Why CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based psychological treatment that is recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Evidence (NICE) for the effective treatment of Depression and the Anxiety Disorders.

CBT has been clinically proven to help with a range of conditions including: Depression; Seasonal Affective Disorder; Generalised Anxiety and Panic Attacks;Agoraphobia;Social Anxiety; Low self-confidence/ self-esteem; ;Health Anxiety; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder;Abuse; Body Dysmorphic Disorder/Poor Self-Image; Obsessional Compulsive Disorder(OCD); Specific Phobias( such as dentist, hospital, vomit);Weight problems;Occupational problems; Hypochondriasis; Trichotillomania( Hair pulling); Dermatillomania ( Skin-picking)

CBT helps clients explore alternative, more helpful ways of thinking and reacting to life's difficulties and to develop coping strategies and more positive attitude to the present and future.

Personal Approach

I use a modern approach to CBT by incorporating elements of Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT) to best meet the specific needs of the individual.
