CBT Therapist (Online & Telephone Sessions)
I am a qualified psychological wellbeing practitioner working in the NHS West Yorkshire region now offering guided self help therapy remotely across the UK. I am also an IAPT trained supervisor and currently offer this on a weekly basis within the NHS. I have recently completed training relating to long term health conditions (LTC) and the psychological tensions this can bring for individuals struggling to adjust and manage health conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and more.
EXPERIENCE AND SKILLS
I offer psychological therapies based on principles of Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT) which is an evidence based approach that aims to tackle a range of common mental health problems including depression, anxiety, panic, OCD (onset 6 months), Health anxiety and more. 4-8 sessions are recommended to see change and can be offered on a weekly or fortnightly basis with reviews of treatment mid way.
An initial first session will start of with a chance for us to get to know each other. It will involve establishing a shared understanding of your presenting problems, what symptoms you are experiencing and how your problem is affecting your life. We will establish the impact this is having on your ability to function on a day to day basis including the impact this has on sleep, eating and self care. Together we will identify practical ways to make helpful changes including developing a more balanced sense of self, challenging unhelpful assumptions or negative thoughts you have about yourself, others and the world. We will look at ways to boost your mood by encouraging routine, mood boosting activities, reducing rumination and problem solving. If you are struggling with physical symptoms of anxiety or panic we can work through a set of relaxation techniques to establish a calmer state of body and mind. With your new set of skills you can expect to feel more confident and more well equipped to tackle day to day life challenges.
