Hi, I'm Beverley, a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and EMDR Practitioner
I provide CBT and EMDR services for people in Nottingham
I help people who are struggling with with anxiety, worry, stress, self-criticism and low mood feel more confident in their ability to manage the challenges that life can bring. Through non-judgmental understanding, I provide a space where you can be deeply listened to without judgement & learn strategies that work in the long-term.
Together, we'll explore how to get to a place where you have the freedom to live life without your worry, anxiety & your inner critic running the show.
If you feel anxious, stressed & fed up of beating yourself up all the time, you are not alone & it doesn't have to be this way
There are so many standards to judge ourselves against these days. You start each day with the best of intentions but life feels overwhelming when you try as hard as you do. You wonder why other people don't get as stressed about things and wish things were easier for you.
Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed right now with all that's going on. You may be feeling:
- Tired of giving yourself such a hard time
- Getting 'stuck' in the same patterns of behaviour that feel 'safe' but are not helping you
- So stressed that you end up cancelling arrangements
- Exhausted from constant anxiety & trying so hard
- Trapped in a constant spiral of worrying
- Alarming yourself with the worst case scenario
If these difficulties are affecting your ability to live your life, then it maybe time to reach out for help.
It’s possible to start feeling more resilient & able to cope
As your therapist, I will take a non-judgmental, empathetic approach to working with your difficulties. Together we can break down problems into manageable chunks and help you feel better. Therapy will focus on practical, doable things that won't expect you to go way beyond your comfort zone.
Like lots of people, I've had challenges in my life. Early in my working life, I found myself stuck in a career that made me very unhappy. I became anxious, stressed out and lost confidence in my ability to cope. Committing to having CBT therapy helped changed that. I was so inspired by the results that I decided to change career direction entirely & trained as a Mental Health Nurse. I especially enjoyed helping people overcome anxiety and depression, so completed further training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, EMDR Mindfulness.
I sincerely believe that CBT & EMDR is helpful for lots of people and greatly benefit from using the strategies and tools I've learnt in my own life. I am a firm believer in the concept of using these approaches 'from the inside out' so that I am the best therapist I can be & understand better what it's like to be in a client's shoes. I will therefore never ask you to work on tasks I would not be prepared to do myself.
There are many benefits to cognitive behavioural therapy and EMDR
Therapy can help you look after your mental health & well being.
It can help you:
- Gain confidence that you can manage what life throws your way & trust yourself more
- Notice when you are at risk of getting caught in old habits that re-activate downward spirals
- Improve the relationship you have with yourself & take care of your own well being
- Feel interested in social situations instead of avoiding them
- Improve relationships with those around you
- Feel an enormous sense of achievement in how far you have come
These are just a few of the ways therapy can help
But don't just take my word for it, come over to the Testimonals Page to see what other people I have worked with have gained from this service.
