Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

(1 Review)
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests CBT for
  • Alcohol Dependence
  • Bipolar
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • OCD
  • Panic
  • PTSD
  • Binge Eating
  • Social Anxiety
Cognitive behavioural therapy concentrates on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your emotions and actions. It recognises and challenges negative thoughts that perpetuate the issues you encounter. The objective of CBT is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.


NICE suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what matter concerning your childhood or adult life you explore. The aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a difficulty and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you face. It explores your thoughts, emotions and relevant events in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find appropriate ways of coping.


  • Anger
  • Bereavement
  • Relationship Problems
  • Self Esteem

"She is very pleasant person and she helped me lots...very calm and she will listen what you have to say and then she will advise you and explain to you in the best way possible! After the first session I was feeling better and I feel I have done a big progress about myself with her help! We had 2 sessions but we ended as I was feeling ok and I am moving in London but anytime when I will feel anxious I won't hesitate to contact her again. Maria is very friendly and she will talk with you like a real friend and you will feel her very close and you wont hesitate to tell her everything about your feelings! Thank you so so much Maria!"
