Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT is generally a short term psychological treatment which helps people to understand and change the links between their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Generally between 6 and 20 sessions are needed but some people may only need a few sessions to help resolve their difficulties. CBT involves gaining an understanding of the difficulty through the client and therapist working together in a collaborative way.


Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy 

ye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing was developed by Francine Shapiro in 1987. It is now recommended in the NICE guidelines and is used in particular for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder but also for many other difficulties.


 

I work  online using confidential encrypted  video conferencing ( Microsoft Teams and Zoom). I am also able to provide therapy by telephone.
