Hi and welcome. I know how daunting it can be to start therapy but we can work together to explore your current difficulties, looking at them through a new lens so you have greater insight and perspective. By building a warm & trusting relationship with you I can enable you to feel heard and understood, make sense of your feelings or maybe understand why you are not feeling, gain greater insight into your inner emotional world, accept those parts of yourself you may not like, help you to manage difficult people and teach you how to turn off your inner 'critical voice' so you become more forgiving and kinder to yourself and others.

Clients have CBT for a variety or reasons: it could be to help a specific mental health problem such as anxiety, OCD, depression, trauma, an eating disorder or addiction. Others are going through major life events such as divorce or bereavement, and may be suffering from stress, insomnia and guilt. Perhaps you are not coping with relationship issues, or are finding your life is badly effected by anger issues, perfectionism or low self-esteem. CBT is evidence-based, effective and the therapy of choice for the NHS, NICE and WHO.

I see individual and couple clients with a wide range of issues. They include problems within relationships, parenting issues, bereavement, stress at work, low self-confidence and more. Often a client might feel a loss of hope and meaning in their life; they might have problems regulating their moods or coming to terms with aspects of themselves and decisions they have made. By coming into therapy, they seek to build a trusting relationship in which they open up, explore, let go of difficult emotions and complex thinking and beliefs.

The people I work with come from dysfunctional families where their needs, physical or emotional, were neglected or abused. This may result in addictions, and relationships difficulties. Codependents might try to support another or others while lacking the support they themselves need.

I didn't know how much I needed this till I made a breakthrough and things made sense. I feel much better, with a clearer vision of my future."
