I am Cambridge based and my specialism is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence based practical approach which focuses on changing problematic thinking styles and behavior patterns through the use of solutions, tools and techniques. Over the past 10 years, I have worked in a variety of NHS based and private settings across the UK working with a wide variety of difficulties and presenting problems such as anxiety, depression and low self esteem. I work with adults and adolescents. I am able offer insight into working with people with long-term health conditions and also individuals who may identify as LGBTQIA.
I incorporate third wave approaches such as Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, Distress intolerance and Narrative Therapy into my work at Cambridge CBT. These approaches are particularly effective in working with painful emotions and processes such as guilt, shame, rumination, anger and an intolerance of uncertainty.
I am warm and approachable. I work collaboratively, centring clients as experts in their lives. I believe in tailoring therapy to each individuals unique needs. I will help you reconnect with your values and provide you with effective tools and techniques that allow you to become your own therapist. Please feel free to contact me regarding CBT in Cambridge.
