Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change" Albert Einstein

My Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) practice is specifically adapted to be effective for individuals with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Condition or Demand Avoidant Behaviours, or those awaiting assessment. It can be particularly useful for those experiencing OCD, anxiety, low mood, anger and frustration, and difficulties with self-esteem and low confidence. 

 

CBT is a talking therapy designed to help us recognise and understand how our thoughts, feelings and actions are connected. Because of the logical and practical approaches to identifying goals, CBT can be particularly effective in working with an individual’s strengths and needs.
