I am a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and I provide therapy in Guildford (and worldwide online) for the following issues:

THERAPY FOR ANXIETY

Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety, Health Anxiety, Phobias, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Panic Disorder

THERAPY FOR DEPRESSION

THERAPY FOR RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS

Domestic abuse, emotional abuse, marital affairs, breakdown in communication, marital separation, family issues, codependency

THERAPY FOR PERSONALITY DISORDERS

Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (formerly known as Borderline Personality Disorder), Narcissistic Personality Disorder

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) works faster than traditional Psychotherapy and deals more with the here-and-now (although the past is also significant). It’s not true, however, that CBT does not look at your history/background. If you are struggling to cope, need someone to talk to, and wish to explore your problems, I can help you to find direction and make sense of things.

You don’t have to cope – get in touch and start therapy/counselling to make positive changes in your life. Counselling offers a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental place for you to explore private issues. Sometimes you need someone to give you a fresh perspective.

Many of us behave and think in certain ways without even realising that we are self-sabotaging our chances and opportunities for success. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy improves self-awareness and increases resilience to stressful life events. It involves identifying what is causing the problems you face, what is triggering them, and what is maintaining your troubles.

 

Therapy for anxiety

Online therapy based in Guildford can be the change you have been looking for. Whether you’re suffering from panic attacks, obsessive thoughts, unrelenting worries, or an incapacitating phobia, it’s important to know that you don’t have to live with anxiety and fear. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help, and for many anxiety problems, therapy is often the most effective option. Anxiety therapy treats more than just the symptoms of the problem.

Therapy can help you uncover the underlying causes of your worries and fears; learn how to relax; look at situations in new, less frightening ways; and develop better coping and problem-solving skills. Therapy gives you the tools to overcome anxiety and teaches you how to use them.

While many different types of therapy are used to treat anxiety, the leading approaches are cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure therapy. Each anxiety therapy may be used alone, or combined with other types of therapy. The goal of therapy is  to lower your anxiety levels, calm your mind, and overcome your fears.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most widely-used therapy for anxiety disorders. Research has shown it to be effective in the treatment of panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder, among many other conditions.

CBT addresses negative patterns and distortions in the way we look at the world and ourselves. As the name suggests, this involves two main components:

Cognitive therapy examines how negative thoughts, or cognitions, contribute to anxiety.

Behavior therapy examines how you behave and react in situations that trigger anxiety.

The basic premise of CBT is that our thoughts—not external events—affect the way we feel. In other words, it’s not the situation you’re in that determines how you feel, but your perception of the situation. For example, imagine that you’ve just been invited to a big party. Consider three different ways of thinking about the invitation, and how those thoughts would affect your emotions.

The cost of a session is GBP70,00 for an hour. My success recovery rate is approximately 83% (verified by the NHS as I work part-time for them too).

Therapy in Guildford is available to adults and teenagers and some concessions are available for students or those on a low income.

I am accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies. (BABCP)
