Therapies I Offer
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
£80 per session.
CBT can help with anxiety, OCD, depression, eating disorders and trauma. It is a talking and doing therapy based on the theory that thoughts, feelings, what we do and how our body feels are connected. We will explore new insights and techniques to begin to face your fears and overcome the difficulties which get in the way of living your best life. CBT includes between-session practice to consolidate new skills learnt in session. I also integrate compassion focused therapy into my practice.
Emotionally Focused Couples Counselling
£80 per session
We will explore the negative cycles you get stuck in in order to reconnect at a deeper emotional level. Love is vital for our happiness and rediscovering that you can rely on your partner for your emotional needs is key to physical and mental wellbeing.
EFT usually takes between 12 and 20 sessions but sometimes couples feel better sooner. The number of sessions very much depends on you and your individual needs.
