With more than two decades of mental health experience (and nine years of studying), offering therapy to clients with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and many more mental health issues is something I take a lot of pride in. Whether you just need someone to listen to you or want to make amazing changes, counselling can be the pivotal turning point where good things start to happen. We’ll be a team focusing on what’s in your best interests. I practise what I preach and after my own difficult childhood, chronic illness and many other challenges, I live a productive life and have clear priorities. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve when you put your mind to it. Mandy Kloppers X

Face-to-face / Online therapy

“Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise” – Victor Hugo

Hi! I’m Mandy and I offer face-to-face and online therapy from Guildford.  I have more than two decades of experience offering therapy to clients with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, and many more mental health issues. I possess a BA Degree with double majors in Psychology and Sociology. Studying has so far, taken a total of 10 years and my most recent qualification was completed in 2017 – a Post-Graduate CBT degree course from the New Buckinghamshire University in the UK. I’m also a published author, fluent in three languages, and enjoy researching human behaviour.

I’d be more than happy to help you resolve any problems you face in a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space.

The benefits of therapy include improved self-awareness, understanding your triggers, and gaining insight into reducing unhelpful behavioural patterns. It can also vastly improve your quality of life.

What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders, and severe mental illness. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life. In many studies, CBT has been demonstrated to be as effective as, or more effective than, other forms of psychological therapy or psychiatric medications.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an approach for which there is ample scientific evidence that the methods that have been developed actually produce change. In this manner, CBT differs from many other forms of psychological treatment.

CBT counseling usually involves efforts to change thinking patterns. These strategies might include:

  • Learning to recognize one’s distortions in thinking that are creating problems, and then to reevaluate them in light of reality.
  • Gaining a better understanding of the behavior and motivation of others.
  • Using problem-solving skills to cope with difficult situations.
  • Learning to develop a greater sense of confidence in one’s own abilities.

CBT counseling also usually involves efforts to change behavioral patterns. These strategies might include:

  • Facing one’s fears instead of avoiding them.
  • Using role playing to prepare for potentially problematic interactions with others.
  • Learning to calm one’s mind and relax one’s body.

Not all Cognitive Behavioural Therapy will use all of these strategies. Rather, the psychotherapist and patient/client work together, in a collaborative fashion, to develop an understanding of the problem and to develop a treatment strategy.
CBT places an emphasis on helping individuals learn to be their own therapists. Through exercises in the session as well as “homework” exercises outside of sessions, patients/clients are helped to develop coping skills, whereby they can learn to change their own thinking, problematic emotions, and behavior.

CBT therapists emphasize what is going on in the person’s current life, rather than what has led up to their difficulties. A certain amount of information about one’s history is needed, but the focus is primarily on moving forward in time to develop more effective ways of coping with life.
