Aaron Shalan-Webb

CBT and DBT therapist


Using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), which is a scientifically proven treatment, Aaron takes a person-centred approach, working together with his clients to treat a range of conditions and optimise wellbeing. These include depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), autism, addiction and personality disorders. Aaron’s approach as an evidence-based practitioner incorporates other scientifically backed therapies such as dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), schema therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and compassion-focused therapy (CFT).

CBT involves looking at our thoughts, emotions, physical symptoms and behaviours, which occur when we’re triggered by an internal or external event. Through looking at our experiences in this way, we can reach a greater understanding of ourselves and what maintains our problems, and look at ways to achieve a desired change. Taking a person-centred approach to understanding and treating any difficulty you may be experiencing, Aaron works together to develop and achieve goals for your treatment.
