Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

"By correcting erroneous beliefs, we can lower excessive reactions"

CBT focuses on the relationship between our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. CBT proposes that the way we think about ourselves, others and the world influences how we feel and behave.


It is a practical therapy that is designed to teach you a variety of techniques that will help you to change the way you think and behave to improve your well-being. You will be expected to practice these techniques between sessions.

CBT is a well known therapy with an impressive empirical research base. It has found to be effective for a range of difficulties, including anxiety, low-mood, trauma, phobias and obsessive compulsive disorder.

If you like structure, advice and practical tips, this may be the therapy for you.

 Person Centred Therapy (PCT)

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” 
― Carl R. Rogers

PCT is a non-directive therapy that focuses on what you want to discuss each session. This will help you to get in touch with your self-worth and inner values.


I will listen with empathy and curiosity to understand your experience from your point of view.

PCT was developed by Carl Rogers in the 1940s and since then it has been used to help people with a variety of difficulties. It is one of the recommended therapies for depression (The Matrix, 2015) and is widely used to help people with grief and stress.

If you like flexibility and the freedom to ​ explore your feelings, this may be the therapy for you.
