Welcome to my website

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based psychological therapy which is the treatment of choice for a range of difficulties. It has been extensively researched and is the most frequently recommended form of psychotherapy by the National Institute of Health & Clinical  Excellence (NICE) because of its effectiveness, the  comprehensive research carried out on CBT on the basis of what works, and the fact that it is COST EFFECTIVE.

A course of CBT therapy averages about 8 to 16 sessions, and is aimed at alleviating current distress and delivering change for the longer term.

A Personal Approach

CBT is  tailor-made to the unique circumstances of each individual client via an agreed “formulation”. This is a detailed map highlighting the factors that have given rise to and maintain psychological difficulties and forms the basis of an agreed treatment plan.

Progress is monitored throughout therapy by the use of well established psychological questionnaires and by the setting of treatment goals agreed between therapist and client.

The aim of CBT is to deliver improvement quickly and to monitor and build on that progress.

All treatment protocols are evidence based and have shown to be beneficial for the following type of difficulties:

    • Chronic  Worry
    • Depression
    • Panic & Anxiety
    • Phobias
    • Anger Management
    • Weight Loss
    • Health Anxiety
