These are all common experiences and get in the way of us living the life we want.
Talking to a professional can help provide strategies for managing thoughts and feelings, overcome avoidance and reclaim our lives.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a practical, problem-solving approach, which is recommended by the NHS and NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines.
I have 14 years' experience providing therapy and teaching within the NHS, universities and in private practice. I have experience working with a broad range of issues including: depression; anxiety; panic attacks; phobias; health anxiety; social anxiety; Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
I believe therapy depends on a therapist's ability to really listen and be empathic, understanding, genuine and non-judgemental.
I have a broad range of techniques and strategies for overcoming different issues. However, empathic understanding is important to identify the most relevant techniques for you and help support you in trying them out.
“I’ve tried a few different treatments but my time with Kate has been kinder and more beneficial for me than anyone else.
Almost everything I continue to use in my daily life I learnt from our sessions which always felt tailor made to me and always left me feeling rather hopeful that maybe I can actually get through all this.”
“I started therapy with Kate during a very low point in University when my OCD and social anxiety was making life very tough.
Over a series of sessions Kate helped me through my final year at university and helped me to get my life back on track through targeted OCD treatment and more general wellbeing advice.
Her sessions have helped me to approach my mental health in a much more healthy way - I would simply not be where I am today without her help.”
"I was very sceptical of CBT as I had tried other therapies and had not found any benefit. I was made to feel very welcome and at ease.
Kate explained the approach and helped show progression which was really helpful to reflect on how I was improving.
If you are having difficulties I would strongly recommend you see how Kate could help you get back to being you."
