Welcome, I am Guy. I am a highly qualified and experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), having worked in mental health for over 8 years and helped hundreds of people to make genuine changes in their lives.
By applying proven methodologies, we can work together on relieving anxiety, depression and low self-esteem, to create a lasting and tangible improvement in your quality of life. This is a safe space, where we can progress at a pace that meets your capacity and preferences.
I always listen with attunement and compassion to promote a positive therapeutic experience for each and every one of my patients, and to help them overcome their difficulties. With the latest academic research in mind, I aim to develop an idiosyncratic understanding of the problem, lead a personalised treatment plan, and support you in achieving your goals in treatment.
What is unique about CBT?
At its core, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an approach that focuses on current challenges, while taking into consideration past events and meaningful life experiences. CBT takes a practical approach, with the aim of achieving meaningful change in the life of the patient. CBT developed on the basis of both research and clinical practice while taking a modern perspective. CBT has been proven to actually produce change and lead to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life for those struggling with a myriad of Anxiety disorders and Depression. In this manner, CBT differs from many other forms of psychological treatment.
In therapy, a unique psychological model is developed and then used to specifically tailor the treatment plan to match the individual needs and goals of each patient, to ensure they maximize the benefits of CBT interventions.
My approach to treatment
I aim to develop a close and supportive therapeutic relationship with my patients, as I am professionally both empathetic and sincere. I view treatment as a space that is dedicated to you and your needs; using practical and empirically proven interventions, I strive to actively help you overcome emotional difficulties.
I offer a free initial phone or video consultation of up to 15 minutes, which is normally useful when considering starting treatment and before scheduling any further appointments.
For clinical sessions (assessments and treatment):
Telephone or video appointments (up to 60 minutes) are charged at £75.
Face-to-face appointments are charged at £90.
I am currently registered with the following health insurance providers: Aviva, AXA, Vitality, and Alliance Health Corporate. Sessions will be invoiced at the agreed insurer rates. Your insurance provider will be able to tell you if your policy will cover your treatment with me.
Therapy Services are available outside standard clinic hours and internationally.
