I offer CBT, EMDR and ADHD coaching as my main services. Read more below.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a talking therapy based on research and recommended for many mental health problems by NICE (National Institure for Clinical Excellence).
In CBT therapy we will explore and develop an understanding of how your thoughts, behaviours and mood are impacting on each other. We then set a goal to work towards and create an individual plan to work towards that goal.
This is about you working toward regaining control of your emotional wellbeing and finding better coping strategies.

CBT FOR COUPLES
Are you having relationship difficulties where one partner may be experiencing mental health problems and this affects the relationship or have you been struggling to communicate and care for each other like you used to? Perhaps a partner has had an affair and you want to try and get back on track.
CBT for couples can be a very effective form of relationship therapy that focuses on building up communications again and meeting each others needs.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing
EMDR is unique therapy that focuses on eye movement to unblock and process Trauma. It was developed in the 1980s by a Clinical Psychologist called Francine Shapiro.
Initally used just for trauma and PTSD, it has also now shown to be effective for other common disorders such as anxiety and phobias.

Do you have ADHD/ADD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or think you may have it?
Having an ADHD mind can feel chaotic, overwhelming , demotivated, bored easily, frustrated and leave you feeling not good enough and having low self esteem.
It can also make you feel excited, motivated, creative, empathic and fun to be around.
Having ADHD is like being consistently inconsistent all of the time!
If you are struggling with organisation, feeling overwhelmed and stressed then ADHD coaching could be helpful in offering you strategies that suit you to manage the difficult parts of the ADHD mind.
You also may be wondering if you have ADHD – I can help you explore this and determine if an assessment by a psychiatrist is a worthwhile route for you.
ADHD Coaching could mean a one off session or a course of suited to your needs.
