Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think, feel and behave.
CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviours are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can keep you in a vicious cycle. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy focuses on changing our automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to emotional difficulties including depression, and anxiety.
CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts.
One of the greatest benefits of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is that it helps you to develop coping skills that can help you now, and in the future.
As a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, whilst working with my clients, in a safe confidential, and accepting environment, my approach is supportive and compassionate. I believe this will help my clients on their journey of self discovery, growth and change. To enable you to reach your aims, we will work together collaboratively, in a trusting, and non judgemental way, looking at your thoughts, emotions and behaviours.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a solution focused approach, with the aim of helping you to live a richer fuller life.
Getting help can often be the hardest part, especially when you are talking about sensitive information for the very first time. If you do decide to get in touch, your call will be received in a warm, welcoming, and sensitive manner.
