I provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to students, teachers and parents who need to access such support (see endorsements below). CBT is shown to be an extremely beneficial therapeutic intervention for those experiencing stress, anxiety, depression and other mental health difficulties. In CBT the person explores how their thoughts and actions are impacting on how they are feeling. Through a process of discovering the person’s unique thought and behaviour patterns, changes can be made to alter what is frequently a negative cycle. This form of therapy also incorporates a large educational component too as the individual learns ways to help themselves.
While referral through a doctor is preferred people can contact me directly to arrange a consultation. My area of special interest is anxiety disorders and depression in children and adults.
