Sometimes those around us cannot help as they are too close or simply don't understand the issues or difficulties we are experiencing.

I practice Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which focuses on the connections between the way we think, feel and behave/avoid taking action. People often have unrealistic expectations/beliefs about themselves, others and how life should be which can lead to poor self-esteem, distress and depression.

A central concept of CBT is that you feel the way you think and works on the principle that you can live more happily if you think in more healthy ways.

The aim of CBT is to help you to actively work to find a more realistic and appropriate way of coping with the demands of life and to break the cycle of negative thoughts and self-defeating behaviour.

CBT can help with: Depression, stress, anxiety & panic, anger management, trauma, confidence/self-esteem guilt/shame, addictions and relationships
