I work as a psychological therapist, practising cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). CBT has become one of the most popular forms of talking therapy. It looks to help patients manage problems by enabling them to recognise how their thoughts can affect feelings and behaviours. CBT combines a cognitive approach (examining your thoughts) with a behavioural approach (the things you do). It aims to break overwhelming problems down into smaller parts, making them easier to manage.
I have extensive experience working with individuals experiencing many mental health concerns, helping them focus on the ‘here and now’ and using evidenced-based interventions. I support patients by actively listening and helping them to learn skills and techniques, which enables them to overcome their current concerns.
I understand the difficulties people experience with mental health problems. I adopt a caring, friendly approach to help individuals better their self-awareness, achieve goals and improve mental wellbeing
