Psychology - CBT
BSc (Hons), MSc, PGDip, CPsychol
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and a Practitioner Psychologist, accredited with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I have been providing psychological therapy in both the private and NHS settings since 2008.
I work in an integrated way with an emphasis on cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT). I enhance traditional CBT, which means that therapy can be adapted around the needs of my clients.
The common theme within these approaches is to help my clients to recognize their thoughts and to explore whether they influence behaviours that may be keeping problems going.
My therapeutic approach aims to help my clients to enhance their strengths and inner resources so that they can move forward from many problem areas such as depression, anxiety, stress, poor confidence or self esteem, relationship problems, work related problems, eating disorders and other distressing emotional difficulties.
Alongside my private practice, I work in the NHS within an IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) setting, providing CBT to clients with mild to moderate mental health difficulties.
I am registered with the following private health care companies: AXA PPP, WPA and Simplyhealth.
The problems I can help with include:
Depression and Low mood.
Anxiety and Panic.
Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) or worry.
Phobias (including social phobia and agoraphobia) .
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Impulsive behaviours and Emotional distress.
Childhood Trauma (including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
Eating Disorders (Bulimia Nervosa and Anorexia Nervosa).
The therapeutic approaches I use include the following:
