Psychological difficulties 

Many people experience difficulties with their mood, emotional wellbeing that affect their day to day functioning. Psychological therapy is recommended by National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) as an effective treatment for the following difficulties:

  • Anxiety - worry, overthinking, making negative predictions, often leads to avoidance of situations

  • Depression - low mood, lack of enjoyment or pleasure, problems with motivation, withdrawal 

  • Low self-esteem - negative self-perception, low confidence and self-critical thinking. 

  • Social anxiety - fear of social situations which involve interacting with others. Characterised by fear of being negatively judged or evaluated and this leads to avoidance and withdrawal. 

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder - an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, images, and sensations (obsessions) and repeat certain behaviours to manage this anxiety. 

  • Trauma - can be a single traumatic event (e.g. accident, victim of crime) or multiple traumatic and adverse experiences (e.g. abuse). 

  • Phobias - debilitating fear of a specific object or situation which leads to avoidance.

  • Adjustment to changes in life circumstances, relationships or health issues. 

I am experienced in providing psychological assessment and treatment for these difficulties, mainly using a CBT approach.
