Telephone Counselling & CBT
I was a telephone therapist in the NHS for 8 years offering help to people with Depression and Anxiety. I found it to be enormously effective in helping people manage their Anxiety and Low Mood as well as issues like OCD, Sleep Problems and so on.
Some forms of therapy are best suited to the therapy room. However, CBT (Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy) works just as well via the medium of the phone and video (like SKYPE, ZOOM and Fuze) as well as face to face. By its nature CBT is a very pragmatic approach using set of techniques that give you some real practical advice as to how you can start NOW to make those changes you aspire towards.
So how to I access this and what's the fee?
Simple, drop me an email, message me via the chat link on the bottom right or call me 07446094843. We can schedule in a time that suits you (I am available Weekends and Evenings). We can take it from there. Fees are £45 for an initial assessment (you would get a copy of this too of course) and then £40 per telephone session.
How does it work?
Your first session would be a 30 minute Assessment of which you will receive a copy. This would give you the opportunity to tell me exactly what it is that you would like help with. We can discuss things like you goals, how you experience the problems you're bringing and how they're affecting you in the wider parts of your life - like finances, relationships and so on. Despite being a really informal session I would gather the information I need to establish the best and most appropriate methods for you to start using right away to address your needs.
Is there a waiting list....how long before I am seen?
No, there is no waiting list. I could book you in for an assessment straight away and you wouldn't have to wait more than a few days to be 'seen'.
