I am a qualified and accredited Psychotherapist (BABCP and IPT UK accred.), specializing in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT).
I have 15 years experience treating common mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, PTSD, phobias, health anxiety, social anxiety, OCD, low self-esteem and abuse.
My aim is to give you the best support and guidance on your journey to recovery.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a treatment intervention that uses a wide range of evidence based techniques and focuses on challenging and changing cognitive distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems. It can be used in the treatment of a number of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety disorders such as GAD, OCD, PTSD and Social Phobia, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, and eating disorders.
CBT can be used as a short-term treatment option and also a longer term treatment plan.
The Nice guidelines recommend around 16 to 20 sessions for the treatment of depression and 12 to 15 sessions for anxiety disorders, or more if the disorder is more complex.
Interpersonal psychotherapy is a brief, attachment-focused psychotherapy that centers on resolving interpersonal problems and symptomatic recovery. It is an empirically supported treatment that focuses on 1 of 4 main areas in treatment. These focal areas are, Role Transition, Role Dispute, complicated grief and interpersonal sensitivities.
IPT seeks to improve the client's depressive symptoms by addressing interpersonal difficulties that are causing or are caused by the depression.
IPT sessions are very structured and run for 16 sessions.
