What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help people address difficulties feelings and challenging situations. CBT focuses on thoughts and behaviours. It's based on the concept that our thoughts,  emotions, behaviours and physical sensations are connected. In CBT therapy sessions the therapist helps the individual identify negative thinking patterns and behaviours that can keep you stuck in a vicious cycle. The first step to changing a problem is developing an awareness of it and CBT helps you to understand what might be keeping difficult feelings going. The ultimate aim in CBT is to teach you tools to empower you to become your own therapist. 

What problems can I address in therapy?

I help people address the following difficulties:

  • Low self-esteem and poor body image

  • Depression

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder 

  • Panic attacks

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder 

  • Specific Phobias

  • Social anxiety

  • Health anxiety

  • Body dysmorphia

  • Managing a long term health condition with mental health difficulties

  • Generalised anxiety disorder and worry

  • Work stress 

CBT sessions £80 for a 60 minute session and are delivered using skype/zoom. I don't believe that price should be a barrier to therapy. I have offer a sliding scale if you are on a low income.
