Barbara Morgan
Counsellor & Psychotherapist, specialising in CBT

Barbara Morgan

Barbara Morgan is an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist specialising in CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). She has vast experience of providing one-to-one counselling to adults, young people and children. Barbara has offered psychological therapy to clients for 15 years, each presenting with a variety of clinical difficulties including addictions, anxiety, abuse, anger, depression, eating disorders, grief, low self-esteem, deliberate self-harm, trauma, etc. Some of the clients who have been referred to her have also been diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder. 

She works with clients whose ability to learn is hindered due to emotional, interpersonal and behavioural difficulties. Barbara is competent in addressing the more severe psychological issues including eating disorders, deliberate self-harm, PTSD and severe depression.

Barbara works using an integrated model incorporating CBT and person-centred concepts within her work. She aims to engender change and challenge thought processes and to address the mental, emotional, interpersonal and spiritual aspects.

Her approach focuses on the issues clients may bring and on opportunities they may be unaware of. This process may help to tap into unused potential. Various techniques like relaxation and stress management can help with coping strategies.
