I'M READY, LET'S DO THIS!

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 overwhelmed. But it doesn't need to stay that way.

I'm here to help you figure out your emotional stuff so that you can move forward with your life. Move forward to a place where you feel good about yourself, you're not endlessly worrying and overthinking, you're not stuck thinking about the past, and you can switch off and actually relax. A place where you can stress less and start living.

I've helped hundreds of clients using online CBT and I'm confident I can help you too. And what makes my approach unique is that I'm also able to draw on my other trainings in Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy to tailor the therapy so that it meets your unique needs. 

Working things through with me as your therapist to help you unpick everything and break down overwhelming problems into smaller more manageable goals will do wonders for your wellbeing and mental health. And I'll be there with you every step of the way, making you feel safe and supported, and allowing you to take things at your own pace.

YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH ANXIETY and depression, AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO WASTE A MINUTE LONGER FEELING RUBBISH.

what can CBT help with

TO MAKE SURE I'M THE BEST THERAPIST FOR YOU, I'VE LISTED THE DIFFICULTIES BELOW THAT I SPECIALISE IN.

AND YOU'LL BE PLEASED TO KNOW THAT COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY IS THE NO 1 RECOMMENDED TREATMENT FOR EACH OF THESE DIFFICULTIES.

DIFFICULTIES YOU MIGHT BE EXPERIENCING

Do you feel like you've failed if something isn't perfect? People with perfectionism tend to judge their self-worth based on their achievements, and relentlessly strive for extremely high standards even when there are personal negative consequences.

perfectionism

NEEDING TO BE PERFECT

Do you often feel like you're not good enough? People with low self-esteem often have a negative opinion of themselves and a lack of self-confidence, usually resulting in self-doubt, self-criticism and anxiety or low mood.

low self-esteem

NOT BELIEVING IN YOURSELF

Do you feel like you're unable to cope with all the demands and pressures in your life? People with burnout experience mental, emotional and physical exhaustion caused by prolonged or repeated stress, often leaving you feeling pessimistic and unmotivated.

FEELING STRESSED AND OVERWHELMED

Do you excessively worry about a number of different things? People with generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) find it hard to control their worry and have constant feelings of anxiety usually about something going wrong.

WORRYING AND FEELING ANXIOUS

Do you worry about something bad happening and it being your fault? People with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) experience unwanted intrusive thoughts (obsessions) that cause anxiety and lead to repetitive behaviours (compulsions) as a way of coping.

DISTRESSING OBSESSIONS AND COMPULSIONS

Do you worry about what others think of you and whether you've embarrassed yourself? People with social anxiety often worry before, during and after social situations, and sometimes avoid social events altogether because they're too anxiety provoking.

FEELING ANXIOUS IN SOCIAL SITUATIONS

Do you get sudden attacks of anxiety and fee like you might pass out or die? People with panic disorder experience frequent panic attacks characterised by intense physical symptoms that seem to come out of the blue, and sometimes happen even when sleeping.

HAVING REGULAR PANIC ATTACKS

Do you spend a lot of time worrying about possible flaws in your appearance? People with body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) often feel embarrassed, ashamed and anxious about their appearance and go to great lengths to cover up their perceived flaws.

PREOCCUPIED BY BODY IMAGE CONCERNS

Online CBT is very effective and studies have shown that online therapy is just as effective to face-to-face therapy. Ultimately online CBT is the same as face-to-face and delivers the same quality treatment.

I love that your geographic location isn't a barrier to working with me, because I believe people should be able to access the right treatment wherever they are in the country.

You can choose where you want to have your online CBT and it can be different each week depending on what you're up to, all you need is a laptop, phone or tablet to access Zoom.

I love the benefits online CBT brings - no travel time, no paying for parking, no waiting rooms, and convenient sessions that don't interfere with your day.

I'm based in Hertfordshire but I see all of my clients solely online because I believe there's something special about being able to access therapy from the comfort of your own home.

Online CBT sounds good, I'm in!

I'M IN, SIGN ME UP NOW!

In our first assessment session we'll discuss your current difficulties, and I'll gather information about you and your situation to make sure that CBT is the best therapeutic approach for you.

We'll create a written understanding of the difficulties, which will explain how these difficulties came about and exactly how they're being maintained in relation to beliefs and thoughts, emotions and bodily sensations, and patterns of behaviour. Clients often find this process extremely helpful and reassuring, as not only do you gain clarity on the difficulties but you also have a hopeful understanding of how to overcome them.

During the treatment phase of CBT we'll usually meet weekly to talk things through in a proactive way, and we'll agree therapeutic tasks for you to complete in between the sessions to put the things you learn into practice in real life. This is what makes CBT special - it's not just about talking, it's also about making changes to improve how you feel.

ONLINE CBT WITH ME IS COMPASSIONATE AND COLLABORATIVE, AND I'LL WORK WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY TO HELP YOU FIND SOLUTIONS TO YOUR DIFFICULTIES.

HOW DOES CBT WORK

At the start of our sessions I was very afraid to open up and was worried about the sessions but Natalie has helped me so much. Natalie was brilliant and I feel she has really helped me by guiding our sessions to suit my needs. She tailored my therapy to be what I needed - thank you!
