What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced based treatment that is recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) for the treatment of a range of disorders including anxiety and depression.

For more information please go to the “What is CBT?” page.

How often should I attend appointments?

This can be agreed following your assessment session. Generally I would recommend having sessions weekly or fortnightly and I would generally offer somewhere between 6-20 sessions. However, this may change depending on the problem that you are presenting with.  This will always be agreed between us. It is important to note that you can stop sessions at any time regardless of how many sessions we initially contracted.

Where do sessions take place?

I work at locations in the centre of St Albans (St Peters Street), Markyate and in Apsley, Hemel Hempstead. Parking is available at the location in St Albans and Markyate but unfortunately there is no parking on site in Hemel Hempstead.

What safeguards are in place?

In order to remain an accredited member of the BABCP (British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists) and to ensure safe and effective practice, I am required to seek regular clinical supervision and to attend regular training in order to keep my knowledge and skills up to date. Any discussions between myself and my supervisor will also remain confidential.

I adhere to the BABCP code of ethics.
