Who I help
My clients tend to be individuals who are aged 18 years and over.
I am an accredited CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist – see link for more information on CBT) with 20 years’ experience working in mental health, 12 of these within the NHS.
I have extensive experience of working with a range of problems and disorders, and have a special interest in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Although CBT is my main therapeutic approach in exploring difficult, and often painful, emotions and experiences, I also work in an integrative way to meet clients’ needs. I use elements of systemic and interpersonal therapeutic approaches to help you achieve an increased self-awareness and understanding.
I am based in Cumbria and provide therapy at my garden room in Wigton which is easily accessed from Carlisle, Penrith and West Cumbria. (Please see attached photos of the therapy room). Usually I see clients face to face but because of Covid-19 I am exclusively providing sessions remotely either by Zoom, Skype or telephone.
My clients can either self-refer or are referred through agencies. I am a registered provider of CBT therapy with occupational health and insurance agencies such as CBT Clinics, Validium, Moving Minds, Psycholegal, etc. and private health insurers BUPA, AVIVA and AXA. .
If you have any further queries or you feel CBT might help and you would like an appointment, then please contact me.
