Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is widely recognised as an effective treatment. Over recent years it has become the treatment of choice for many psychological disorders and is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence).

CBT is cost effective as it is a short term therapy with most people needing between 6 and 20 sessions. For some background information about CBT visit the What is CBT page. Information about me can be found on the About Me link.

I am also trained and accredited in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing ) and can provide this as part of a CBT programme or as a stand alone therapy to treat past distressing memories. This therapy is recommended in the NICE guidelined for trauma and can be used for many problems.  

 It is difficult to choose a therapist from a website and so I welcome  informal chats about how I may be able to help.Self referral  can be made either by email or telephone found by clicking on the contact me link. 

I work from a quiet private practice at Kirkburton Osteopathic Practice near Huddersfield and provide a professional and effective service see Directions

I welcome self referrals, referrals from GP's and other health professionals, family, solicitors, insurers and employers. All telephone assessments or informal chats about therapy are free of charge.
