A confidential, tailor-made approach to your needs

About CBT

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Involves changing the way you think (cognitive) and how you respond to these thoughts (behaviour). CBT focuses on the 'here and now' and breaks overwhelming problems into smaller parts, making them easier to deal with.


It also empowers you to develop strategies to deal with problems. It is possible for the therapy to take place on a one to one basis, with family members, or even as a group, depending on the issue. Because of the nature of CBT, it has a long term success rate.


The client normally has an initial consultation, followed by a six week programme. After this programme, an assessment is performed to see whether the client requires a further period of consultation.

Therapy areas

Bereavement

When we lose a close family member or a friend, it can be hard. Although other family members and friends have lost the same person, each relationship with that person is unique and so it can help to talk to a counsellor about those feelings and to understand the stages of bereavement.

Stress

When experiencing acute stress it can be difficult to see the wood for the trees and to make rational decisions. CBT lends itself to stress management by helping the client focus upon manageable goals and strategies.

Relationship issues

Close relationships can be the source of pleasure and pain. CBT helps the individual to build resilience and look at the issues from different perspectives.

Anxiety

Feelings of dread, apprehension and distress which may result in panic attacks can be frightening and can effect everyday life. By talking to an independent person the individual can develop coping strategies which can be applied to all areas of life.

Adolescent issues

Adolescence is a time of 'storm and stress' and can be difficult for all involved. Exam stress, relationship problems and body image can result in low self-esteem. I have a vast experience of working with and using CBT with young adults.

Divorce

This is one of the most stressful life events. CBT helps the client to gain perspective and to develop coping strategies to deal with both the emotional and practical fallout that divorce brings.

Depression

Depression may result in feelings of inadequacy, despondency and lethargy. Counselling, provides a confidential setting for the person to begin to understand their feelings in order to develop coping strategies and to begin to change negative thoughts.

Low self-esteem

Poor self image will have an effect on every decision and action that an individual makes. CBT helps to empower the individual to make more positive decisions and in turn raise their self-esteem.

Post-natal depression

Post-natal depression may follow in the first year following childbirth. It may be due to hormonal imbalance, the shock of the change of lifestyle, or both. I have run groups for women experiencing post-natal depression and used CBT with individuals.

Children's behavioural problems

Dealing with a disruptive child can be emotionally draining. I have used CBT with parents and children to develop strategies to change behaviour.
