How I can help
You may be struggling with anxiety, feeling stressed or depressed. You might have problems with your relationships or at work. You may have a difficult relationship with food or other substances. Or you might just feel lost or that life has little meaning. For most people suffering from these problems, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is the best approach. This proven, evidence-based therapy has helped millions of people around the world – and I have helped hundreds of people get their lives back on track using CBT.
Alternatively, you may have had problems for years or even decades – and it's hard to remember a time when you weren't struggling. You might have tried a number of things to help yourself, perhaps including different kinds of therapy – but it hasn't worked. That's where schema therapy comes in. This highly effective approach is based on CBT, but has been enriched and expanded to make it one of the most transformative styles of therapy currently available. Schema therapy can often help even the most stubborn, hard-to-treat, longstanding problems that other approaches cannot shift. It is a warm, compassionate, creative approach that can heal deep hurts and trauma, whatever you may have been through in your life.
There is a huge amount of information, available for free, on my site. I write a Healthy Adult Blog, covering all aspects of mental health and wellbeing; there are also pages explaining what cognitive and schema therapy are and how they work, as well as resources on mindfulness and compassion. You can also read articles on common psychological difficulties like anxiety, depression, problematic anger, harsh self-criticism and low self-esteem.
As well as providing and writing about therapy, I also teach CBT, schema therapy and mindfulness to groups ranging from schoolchildren to mental health practitioners. You can read all about my teaching here and do get in touch if you would like me to teach for your organisation.
As a Cognitive Therapist and Advanced Accredited Schema Therapist, I am trained to help people with a wide range of difficulties. I see people at my office in East Finchley, North London.
