What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a way of being able to talk about how you think about yourself, the world and other people. Taking into account a person’s previous life experiences, we look at how someone's feelings are influenced by how they think and what they do.

In contrast to other forms of psychotherapy, CBT is usually more focused on the present, more time-limited, and more problem-solving oriented.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence-based practice helping people who are experiencing common mental health difficulties such as

  • Stress/ Burnout

  • Depression

  • Self- esteem difficulties

  • Anxiety-based problems such as:

  • General Anxiety/Worry

  • Panic Attacks

  • Social Anxiety/Shyness

  • Health Anxiety

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • Specific Phobias

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

I also specialise in Perinatal Psychology, addressing mental health difficulties before and after birth

This could include:

  • Anxiety/ low mood during pregnancy

  • Postnatal anxiety or depression (in mother and/or father)

  • Adjustment difficulties to having a new baby

  • Fear of giving birth

  • Traumatic birth experiences

  • Miscarriage

  • Relationship difficulties

I am passionate about helping parents at any stage of their journey to build confidence in their parenting and can consult on behaviour management for children.
