What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

CBT treatment looks at your cognitions (how you think and process things) and your behaviours (how you may act or react in certain situations). There is however a very important third aspect, and that is our feelings and emotions. What we do in this treatment is look at these three aspects both separately and together, observing how feelings, thoughts and behaviours interact with one another. Are these helpful cycles, or unhelpful? And if these are unhelpful, how might we look at modifying this.


CBT is a structured, focused, and practical treatment which looks at identifying specific parts of your life that you want to explore. This treatment often involves homework or home practices to keep you in that therapy mindset both inside and outside of sessions. CBT can be short or longer term and aims to provide you with tools and techniques to better identify, understand and overcome your difficulties. 

What is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy?

ACT is a newer approach stemming from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Through this approach we work towards building acceptance for our inner struggles and emotions, rather than trying to avoid, suppress or 'fix' them. We identify how this inner conflict may be preventing us from living life the way that we want to, or may be increasing our distress. 


ACT helps us to establish an understanding of our personal values, and then uses these to guide us in taking committed action towards them.  We develop skills such as mindfulness, cognitive defusion, and being present. 


ACT can be worked with as a single approach, or can be used alongside other methods such as CBT or counselling. It can be applied to any mental health conditions, and is especially useful for those facing particularly challenging life circumstances or experiences.

What is Integrative Counselling?

Integrative Counselling provides a safe and confidential space for you to explore your difficulties and concerns, allowing you to better develop an understanding of yourself and others. As your Counsellor I will not offer my own opinions as the aim is to help you to reach your own understanding of your experience, so that you feel confident to make the changes that matter most to you.

This form of Counselling can have various approaches, such as Person-Centered theory of Carl Rogers, Gestalt Psychology and Eric Berne’s theory of Transactional Analysis. Your sessions may take the form of general discussions about how you’re feeling, or might involve more specific exercises to help you explore your problems. Counselling is typically medium to long-term, taking place weekly or bi-weekly.
