THERAPY I PROVIDE

I provide CBT therapy and EMDR both remotely via Zoom and face-to-face at a clinic in Congleton, ensuring accessibility and flexibility in treatment options. 

During our sessions, we embark on a collaborative journey, where we delve into understanding your current challenges and the factors that perpetuate them. Together, we formulate a tailored treatment plan aligned with your goals for positive change.

I provide therapy through various insurance companies including AXA, Aviva and BUPA, so please do get in touch if you have private health insurance.


ABOUT ME

With over 14 years of dedicated experience in the healthcare field, I bring a wealth of expertise to Resilient Therapies. Specializing in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), I am committed to empowering individuals like you to navigate life's challenges with clarity and resilience.

What sets me apart is my passion for demystifying emotions and providing practical, understandable solutions. In my practice, I leverage the intuitive wisdom of common sense alongside evidence-based techniques to help you understand and connect with your emotions on a profound level.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy forms the cornerstone of my approach, offering a diverse toolkit to address and transform unhelpful thoughts and behaviours. While our sessions primarily focus on the present moment, I recognize the importance of exploring past experiences to illuminate triggers and pave the way for a more adaptive response in the future.

At Resilient Therapies, your journey is my priority. I craft personalized treatment plans tailored specifically to your needs, drawing upon the most effective strategies to alleviate your symptoms and foster lasting resilience. Together, we'll embark on a transformative path toward emotional well-being and fulfilment.

 

My dedication to mental health has been recognized through nominations for a Reach award for my contributions within the NHS, as well as through my involvement in contributing to the book "Helping Children with their Anxieties" by Ann Cox.

What is CBT?

WHAT IS CBT?

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the connection between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. It is a goal-oriented and evidence-based approach to treating a wide range of mental health conditions and psychological challenges. CBT operates on the principle that our thoughts influence our feelings and actions, and by identifying and changing unhelpful or distorted thinking patterns, we can create positive changes in our behaviour and emotional well-being.

In CBT, individuals work collaboratively with a therapist to identify and challenge negative or irrational beliefs, also known as cognitive distortions. These distorted thoughts often contribute to emotional distress and unhealthy behaviours. By examining the evidence for and against these thoughts, individuals can gain insight into their thinking patterns and replace them with more accurate and constructive beliefs.

CBT is a structured therapy that typically involves a set number of weekly sessions, usually ranging from 6 to 20, although the exact number can vary depending on the individual's needs. The therapy is time-limited, meaning it focuses on achieving specific goals within a defined period. Sessions are typically held on a weekly basis and involve active participation from the individual.

During CBT sessions, therapists and clients work together to develop strategies and skills to manage and overcome challenges. These strategies may include behavioural experiments, where individuals test their beliefs through real-life experiences, as well as cognitive restructuring, which involves challenging and reframing negative thoughts. Clients are often encouraged to practice new skills and techniques outside of therapy sessions to reinforce learning and foster lasting change.

CBT has been extensively researched and has demonstrated effectiveness in treating various mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, and substance abuse, among others. It is a versatile approach that can be adapted to different populations, age groups, and cultural backgrounds. CBT can be delivered in individual therapy, group therapy, or even self-help formats, making it widely accessible to individuals seeking support and personal growth.
