What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - CBT?
CBT refers to a range of techniques to help you change the way you think (cognitive) and what you do (behaviour). Rather than looking at past causes, it focuses on current problems and practical solutions to help you feel better now.
The way we think about situations affects the way we feel and behave. If we view a situation negatively, we may experience negative emotions and feelings which lead us to behave in an unhelpful way. Your therapist will help you identify and challenge any negative thinking so you can deal with situations better and behave in a more positive way

My clinic sessions are designed to help reduce anxiety and provide a calm space for you to move positively forward. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy uses clinically proven, evidence based techniques of Hypnotherapy, NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming and CBT - Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, tailored to meet your needs. In a relatively short space of time, this approach can make significant life changes to resolve unwelcome habits and create positive thought patterns at a subconscious level.
I am a senior Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist covering the South Glos and North Bristol area. I am married with three grown up children. I first became interested in hypnotherapy when I visited a local hypnotherapist regarding weight loss some years ago and was absolutely blown away by the results that were achieved. I was inspired to find out more, and after much research, I decided to take a change in direction and train to become a hypnotherapist myself.
I have over 12 years' experience of working in NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services as a Senior CAMHS Mental Health Specialist with Children and Young People aged between 5 - 18 years, presenting with wide-ranging emotional and behavioural difficulties, including anxiety, low mood, OCD, as well as within specialist eating disorders and family therapy clinics. I have also worked within specialist CAMHS services specialising in Looked After and Adopted Children and Young People mental health. I am also a qualified Child EMDR Therapist. My approach is integrative, incorporating age-appropriate CBT as well as creativity, nature-based interaction and mindfulness where helpful. I am also qualified in ADOS 2 autism assessment protocol and have extensive experience of supporting children and young people identified with autism spectrum condition and other neurodiverse conditions.
