CBT Online

Online therapy is a convenient and effective way to access support. From the comfort of your own space, you can conveniently schedule sessions that suit you. Online treatment offers advantages like reduced transportation costs and increased privacy. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is well-suited for online therapy. CBT uses techniques such as thought challenging, exposure therapy and behavioural experiments, which can be adapted for online sessions. With digital tools and resources, I can provide quality care and build a positive therapeutic relationship, just like in traditional in-person therapy.

Group Workshops

If you're looking to empower yourself by learning more about the psychology of different problems, CBT workshops can be very effective. Through group activities and discussions, you can learn about the causes and symptoms of your issues and techniques for managing anxiety-related behaviours. Group workshops can also provide a space for you to share your experiences, gain support from others, build self-confidence and develop healthier relationships. I guide you every step of the way and explain various strategies to help you grow through challenges that many people can relate to.

As a CBT therapist, the professional offers guidance and support to help individuals effectively manage their anxiety, providing tools and insights from evidence-based techniques to promote mental well-being and resilience.

Managing Anxiety

Worrying is exhausting. The same thoughts circle your head; you crave quiet from the constant cloud of fear. It is hard to sleep, concentrate and motivate yourself to do things because of the continuous noise in your mind. Anxiety can be a debilitating experience, and it can be hard to know the route to calm. Through Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), you can acquire the skills to recognise the thoughts and behaviours that fuel your anxiety, and you can discover more constructive methods to manage and alleviate your symptoms.

Overcoming Depression

Sometimes our lives can become profoundly unfulfilling, painful and demanding, and we don't even know why things are so tough. Perhaps we've become trapped by past events or can't imagine a better tomorrow because today feels futile. Faced with this, we can turn to coping strategies that may have helped initially but are now making things more challenging. I can help bring attention to your deepest feelings, explore how your past affects your life today and release the burden of the past that you may be bearing, perhaps without even realising it. By becoming more mindful of your thoughts and behaviour patterns, you can shine a light through the fog to a clear path forward.

As a CBT therapist, the professional assists individuals in developing a positive self-image, cultivating healthy thought patterns, and building resilience. Through evidence-based techniques, the therapist empowers individuals to enhance their self-esteem and embrace their unique worth and capabilities.

Building Self-Esteem

Investing in yourself can sometimes feel challenging; you can always persuade yourself that other people or things are more deserving, but investing in psychotherapy will be the most meaningful gift you can give yourself, and it can transform your life. Low self-esteem can manifest in several ways, including feelings of worthlessness, helplessness, insecurity and pessimism. Symptoms of low self-confidence include difficulty making decisions, asserting yourself, accepting compliments and trusting your own judgement. CBT enables you to develop healthier ways of thinking and behaving so that you can start to feel more confident and empowered. If you are struggling with low self-esteem, I can help you develop healthier thought patterns and improve your confidence.

"You have considerable power to construct self-helping thoughts, feelings and actions."​
- Albert Ellis
