I offer a safe space to talk about anything which may be of concern in your life, which we can then explore at your own pace, to make sense of things, resolve difficult feelings and make positive change. It can sometimes be difficult to talk to family and friends, and having someone to listen without judgement can make all the difference. Counselling can help us to understand how the past has affected our present life and relationships, helping us to connect to who we really are and to be happier as our true self, which is our human birthright. Counselling can also enable a secure attachment which can help to heal past wounds.

The clients who attend CBT tend to have difficulty in mood or/and high levels of anxiety. The aim of therapy is to assist the client in establishing how their mood and anxiety are linked to their negative thoughts and/or behaviours. I am always aware that the person is an expert in their own life and my role is to help them navigate this by offering the space to look at alternative perspectives. As a BABCP Accredited CBT therapist, I believe my role is to help the person become their own therapist. In assisting in the treatment of lowered mood and anxiety, my role is to help establish and build upon coping strategies.

When life gets tough it can be so hard to know just what to do to put things right. Feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, difficulties within our relationships - these things are not always easy to change on our own, especially for the longer-term. I understand that. As a professional Counsellor and Psychotherapist I believe that counselling can help you to make sense of things. It can make a real difference to how you feel, how you act, and is a big step forward. Counselling is there for you, no matter what the problem. Simply put, it is a practical way to make your life better.

Dialectical Behaviour (DBT) Counsellors
If you're looking to find dialectical behaviour counselling in Belfast or for a Belfast DBT psychologist, you can find Belfast dialectical behaviour therapists who use DBT therapy to provide clients with new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships.

What is DBT Counselling?
DBT was originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder. However, research shows that DBT therapy in Belfast has also been used successfully to treat people experiencing depression, bulimia, binge-eating, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic-stress disorder, and substance abuse. DBT skills are thought to have the capability of helping those who wish to improve their ability to regulate emotions, tolerate distress and negative emotion, be mindful and present in the given moment, and communicate and interact effectively with others.

How do I find a Belfast DBT therapist?
DBT assumes that effective treatment must pay as much attention to the behavior and experience of providers working with clients as it does to clients’ behavior and experience. Thus, treatment of the providers is an important part of any Belfast DBT counselling program, and therapists should practice the skills themselves. They need to know basic behavior therapy techniques and DBT treatment strategies. Look for a Belfast DBT counsellor or therapist with specialized training and experience in DBT.

Who are the best Belfast DBT Psychologists?
The best DBT treatment typically consists of individual therapy sessions and DBT skills groups. Find the best DBT therapists in Belfast who offer individual therapy sessions, ensuring that all therapeutic needs are being addressed. The best DBT counsellors in Belfast will help the patient stay motivated, apply the DBT skills within daily life, and address obstacles that might arise over the course of treatment.
