With more than a decade of experience working with NHS mental health services in the West Midland and London, she can assist you with a variety of therapeutic treatments.
Negative thinking can have a destructive impact on your personal life, your career, as well as your mental and physical health. Regaining control of your thoughts, feelings and behaviour using cognitive behavioural therapy can significantly increase your life satisfaction and overall quality of life.
Our affordable CBT therapy service can help children and adolescents adopt self-help techniques resulting in higher self-esteem, better performance at school and increased confidence in interactions at home and in social situations.
Implementing ACT approaches to help CBT patients identify the thoughts and memories that trigger negative behavioural patterns. The three most common elements are:
If you are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), blocked or unprocessed memories can manifest themselves as nightmares and flashbacks. Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) can help you manage these traumatic memories and reduce the negative experiences associated with them.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), is a type of talking therapy that helps you effectively manage your emotions and physical health problems by actively adapting the way you think and behave. The aim of CBT is to help you identify and break negative behavioural patterns stemming from bad thoughts by encouraging positive thinking.
At Midland Health, we regularly help adults, teenagers and children who are suffering from anxiety, depression, eating disorders and other mental health problems.
Cognitive behavioural therapy is designed to help you understand what you think, how it makes you feel and what behaviour it triggers. It all begins with analysing a given situation.
For example, if a loved one has not called you when you expected them to, you may think that something terrible has happened to them or that they don’t care about you enough to call. This can cause you to feel anxiety, stress or extreme sadness. Those feelings can lead to certain behaviour such as crying, excessively calling the person, acting aggressively (slamming doors, throwing things).
Once a pattern of unhelpful thoughts and related harmful behaviours is identified, your therapist will work with you to implement CBT management techniques to prevent it from affecting you.
Cognitive behavioural therapy is the leading therapeutic approach in the UK as scientific evidence shows that this approach helps people who are struggling with one of the following problems:
