Welcome to my Practice
I am immensely proud of being a BABCP accredited CBT therapist, as this is the Gold Standard for my profession. I have worked in private practice for a number of years. During this time I have successfully and collaboratively worked with a vast number of clients with emotional difficulties. Therefore, I believe I possess a deep understanding of the intricacies of various psychological issues that people unfortunately face in their day to day lives.
My therapeutic work revolves involves being caring, empathic and organized, but also adaptive and flexible. I would like to consider I enable my clients to help them resolve the emotional issues of their past and the present, and to also help them to push open the door to a brighter and more confident future.
Stephen's skill, patience and understanding enabled me to recognise what was driving my problems, and the strategies we dicussed have made an incredible difference to my life. For this, I am eternally grateful to him.M.S.
What is CBT?
CBT or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is an evidence based treatment recommended by NICE for a variety of emotional problems.
What can I expect in the first session?
An initial assessment is carried out, which can take up to 2 sessions dependent on the presenting issue.
A note of caution re CBT
Unfortunately, until such times as the profession of psychotherapy and CBT is effectively regulated, any person can set themselves up as being a CBT therapist. A consequence of this is a number of people within the locality are claiming to offer CBT, who if you look closely at their qualifications are untrained and unqualified to do so!! Please think about the serious implications of this...
