Psychology and CBT therapy
I work with young people 16+, Adults and couples using a combination of CBT, Mindfulness and ACT.
You can expect a therapy that is both reflective and active. Aimed at moving forward in life by identifying unhelpful behavioral and cognitive patterns, letting go of what no longer serves you and changing what is stopping you from living a full and meaningful life.
We will address any issue in an open, direct and supportive way.
I am empathic, compassionate and non judgmental. I firmly believe in the power of a good therapeutic relationship to maximise the benefits of specific psychological techniques.
I work with:
DEPRESSION, LOW SELF ESTEEM, IDENTITY ISSUES, ASSERTIVENESS, LIFE CRISIS;
anxiety disorders such as: WORRY, GENERAL ANXIETY, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), PTSD (Trauma), PANIC, PHOBIA, SOCIAL ANXIETY, HEALTH ANXIETY, PERFORMANCE ANXIETY, SEXUAL DIFFICULTIES, SLEEP ISSUES;
ANGER MANAGEMENT. and CHILDHOOD ISSUES (abuse, neglect, abandonment)

When I started I was feeling hopeless about completing my degree and anxious about my future. I didn’t want to get up, didn’t want to do anything. I was trying everything I could to help with these feeling. I had tried self help books and counseling, but it was maybe 10% helpful. So I contacted my insurance to try a psychologist and particularly CBT. I was very anxious on the first session, but that was the norm for me at the time.
Now I have the tools to manage my anxiety and to solve the problems that makes me anxious in the first place. Rather than criticise myself for what I didn’t do, I am grateful for the small things I am able to do and I reward myself for it. I learnt that honesty makes me happier with myself, that I don’t need to be perfect and that people will not judge me negatively for it. Online therapy is similar to face to face. I did both, but Online is easier as I can do it from home, or from different offices around the UK. We can share resources on the screen and I can save them on my computer, or we can look at documents together.
I would chose Online over face to face.
