It is likely you are looking for support at a difficult time. I'm passionate about helping you if you have any kind of body image issues or anxiety. I also understand the need for supporting families in difficult times. I offer a warm therapeutic relationship which is thoughtfully tailored to your needs. I believe that therapy should be sensitive and boldly creative. I often include a variety of experiences into therapy sessions: things that I have found helpful myself. We all want to have a balance in our lives and to learn to calm the sometimes stormy waters of our mind. I hope to share ways of learning to do this with you.

Hello, my name is Cathy and I work with people who are experiencing problems sleeping. The odd night of sleeplessness is something we probably have all experienced, but chronic sleep disturbance is where sleep is regularly disrupted, and you can be left feeling irritable and exhausted during the day. Sometimes sleep disruption can be linked to underlying life experiences that are proving difficult to deal with, but it can also be the cause of depression and anxiety.

Sometimes life just feels difficult, we don’t always understand it and it may bring many different emotions that we’re not comfortable or happy with. This can lead to anxiety and depression, self esteem and confidence issues that aren’t addressed and manifest into fears and worries we feel we can’t control. I work with different models of counselling to help you find the underlying cause to your worries and anxieties which may be taking over aspects of your life that you are unhappy with. I offer a non-judgemental, safe, supportive and confidential space for you to openly express and explore your feelings

I am warm and friendly and offer clients a safe space to explore their thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental way. Life can get in the way. Often there doesn’t seem time to absorb what has happened or how it has affected us.. Dealing with anxiety, stress, grief and loss are always hard, dealing with them in a pandemic is even harder. Finding the right counsellor with whom you feel safe secure and listen to is the most important ingredient to enable you to explore and manage overwhelming thoughts and feelings. I can help you face these feelings.

A warm, calm safe place to help clients move life from beige back into colour with coping mechanisms for the short term and create mind space to work out the longer term issues, solutions that last a life time. Therapy needs to be, genuine, practicable and comfortable for the relationship between client and therapist to have value or efficacy.

It can feel hard enough in 'normal times', dealing with anxiety, stress and things we find difficult. Right now the pandemic is effecting all areas of life and its impact may be central to your concerns or dilemmas. The idea of seeing a therapist may seem daunting, but doing so allows you to explore and reflect on those aspects of life you're worried or unhappy about, rather than trying to work it all out on your own, in confusion, overwhelm or isolation. Let me support you with low cost online therapy available via Zoom, helping you find ways to be more connected to your inner resilience and potential.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Brentwood are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Brentwood then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Brentwood, or Child Psychologists in Brentwood.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Brentwood psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Brentwood specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
