6+ Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Hi. I'm Christine. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist and an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist - I assist individuals and couples with their mental health. I have private and public sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist and a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist. My interest includes sexual problems, as well as the particular issues encountered by women.

What to Expect

An introductory assessment meeting helps you to see if you are comfortable with me, share what troubles you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and assess if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an initial assessment appointment in Tottenham, London.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and actions. It recognises and addresses negative ideas which maintain the issues you encounter. The objective of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests CBT for alcohol dependence, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and social anxiety disorder.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine what issue concerning your childhood and/or adult life you explore. An objective of counselling is to help you to talk about a problem and discover a solution that is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy combines therapies to fit your preferences and the problems you experience. It explores your subjective experience and choices. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you develop your self-understanding.

Psychosexual Therapy

Psychosexual therapy concentrates on understanding the sexual difficulties you encounter. When appropriate, you complete treatment activities privately at your home. Psychosexual therapy aims to help you overcome sexual difficulties.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It considers your ideas, emotions and relevant moments in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or find appropriate methods of managing.

Thoughts on Mental Health

One aspect of OCD that might be experienced is intrusive thoughts of causing harm to someone. These kind of thoughts are actually quite common, but where others might dismiss or forget about such thoughts, OCD might develop when a particular significance is attached to them. For example, you might have an argument with your partner and think 'I could kill them', or feel anger at someone you work with and think about hitting them. With OCD, you may confuse the thought with the action, for example by believing that having the thought means you are likely to carry out the action. To reduce your anxiety about this, you might then try to avoid triggers for having that thought, e.g. being in meetings with your colleague, seeing newspaper reports about domestic violence, or situations where you believe the action could take place, such as being near knives or being alone with colleagues. However, these avoidance patterns are actually likely to increase how often you have the intrusive thoughts and the anxiety you feel when you have them.
