Over 4 Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Welcome. I am Geoff Baxter. I'm an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist - I support individuals and couples with their mental wellbeing. I have private sector experience as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist.

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment meeting helps you to discover if you are comfortable with me, discuss what troubles you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy may help you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an initial assessment session in Hitchin or Marylebone, London.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and commitment therapy centres on your reactions to your emotions. It encourages your acceptance of your bodily sensations. ACT seeks to help you dedicate yourself to positive action.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your feelings and actions. It identifies and challenges unhelpful ideas which maintain the problems you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests CBT for alcohol dependence, anorexia nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder (BED), bipolar disorder, Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), bulimia nervosa, depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and substance dependence.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you confront. It explores your ideas, emotions and relevant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you change or discover appropriate ways of managing.
