6+ Years Post-Chartership Experience

Welcome. I'm George. I'm a chartered psychologist and an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist - I support individuals with their mental health. I hold private sector experience as a psychologist and a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist. My focus involves Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), depression and Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), as well as the specific obstacles experienced by men, transgender people and women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment meeting allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what worries you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy may assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an introductory assessment session in Ealing, London.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts influence your emotions and actions. It recognises and challenges unhelpful thoughts which maintain the problems you encounter. The aim 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) indicates CBT for depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and self harm.

Psychology

Psychology is interested in you and your mind, emotions and actions. It offers you psychological interventions and mental health support. An intention of psychological therapy is to help you ease symptoms.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you face. It considers your ideas, emotions and relevant events in your life. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or discover suitable ways of coping.

Thoughts on Mental Health

DBT as a psychotherapeutic approach has an evidence-based reputation in the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). The approach was developed specifically for BPD, especially for clients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following sexual abuse. Taking the example of sexual abuse and BPD, the outcomes you could expect from DBT are to be assisted against your faulty appraisals or perceptions, including suspiciousness of others, core beliefs - such as that you are to blame for what took place in your life, fear of perceived threats and danger, avoidant behaviours towards others, who you may think of as ?potential perpetrators? or ?sneaking accomplices?, and fear that the traumatic event of sexual abuse could happen again.

Anxiety is regarded as a condition that is caused by lack of communication and interaction with others. You may have low self-esteem and lack self-confidence in the face of everyday situations that involve engaging with others to plan and make decisions. As an interpersonal problem, anxiety may be experienced in your personal life, but can also include difficulties finding work and going to interviews, cooperating with others or meeting deadlines.
