Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of short term (6 to 20 sessions) talking therapy recommended by the government’s National Institute for clinical excellence (NICE) for the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression.

I support clients in understanding the relationship between the way they think, their feelings and their behaviours and I teach them practical skills and techniques in order to help them manage their mood and anxiety level.

One of the latest development of CBT is called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I use this model of therapy with my clients and it seems to be very effective.

Please read more information about this model of therapy on the link below:

Mindfulness is another key component of my therapeutic work; my clients find this practise very beneficial.
