Key Worker CounsellingMates in Mind

The reason I have trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist is because I have benefit immensely from receiving CBT therapy and I want to pass that on.
I am authentic in my approach and I place great importance on compassion and self acceptance.

I've found that most people who come to see me are struggling with some form of anxiety or stress, low self worth and/or depression (which they quite often don't recognise until we complete an inventory!) Worrying about what people think about them, anxious about social events, stressed at work, struggling to juggle everything and taking it out on family members, angry at the injustice of it all, feeling worthless and a lack of hope and teary. These are just some of the things that are creating problems in their lives until they come to see me and we create a shift by developing a rational, helpful mindset! Changing the beliefs.
