COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Even though I specialise in Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), I am a believer that therapy is not a “one size fits all” activity, therefore I work with an collaborative approach. I am open with listening to your concerns and problems, as I offer you a safe, nurturing and confidential environment for you to explore your issues which may be affecting you. My clients control the pace of therapy, I can guide you across that path with the support you need. Taking the first step into therapy can be a daunting task but I will make that process as comfortable as necessary.
CBT as a therapy is a short term focused approach which is based on the idea that the way a person feels and thinks affects the way you behave. CBT explores the link between your thoughts, behaviours, feelings and physical experiences. The focus and goals of CBT is to change a person’s thought patterns in order to change responses to difficult situations.
CBT does not exclude your past because often the past will help me to understand how you feel now, however the main focus in CBT is on the present. Therefore, for your therapy to be effective, we will identify collaboratively the changes you want to make to help you to move forward positively.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like more information about my therapeutic style or wish to explore your specific requirements.
