My passion is to help clients figure their emotional stuff out and move forwards with their lives. Move forwards to a place where they feel good about themselves, they're not worrying about needing to be perfect, they're not stuck thinking about the past, they can switch off and stop overthinking, and they can stress less and start living. I've helped hundreds of clients using CBT, and I also draw on other approaches such as Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy.
The key idea behind CBT is that what you think (cognitive) and what you do (behavioural) affects the way you feel. Sometimes we can find ourselves stuck in vicious cycles, where our thinking patterns and the things we're doing to try and solve an issue are inadvertently keeping the problem going, leaving us continuing to feel down and anxious.
But it doesn't need to stay that way. Working things through with a therapist to help you unpick everything and break down overwhelming problems into smaller more manageable parts works like magic. And I'm there with you every step of the way, making you feel safe and supported, and allowing you to take things at your own pace.
