Many people struggle with feelings of Anxiety and not being good enough. In fact, those feelings are the reason I became a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist & Coach (PG, Dip).
Like many people, I had a difficult childhood, the effects of which continued throughout my life even as I grew into an adult. Rather than becoming a distant series of vaguely unpleasant memories, my childhood experiences manifested into a swirl of anxiety and worry.
Finally, I got tired of being trapped in the endless cycle of negativity and decided to take action. In a desperate attempt to find happiness and a healthier state of mind, I made the decision to educate myself. My logic was that if I could understand myself, I could help myself climb out of the emotional rut I was in. I came across Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and the more I learned about it, the more everything clicked into place.
CBT helps you to understand your mind in ways other methods don’t! It works with it instead of against it. Once you know how your thoughts and emotions develop and why you behave the way you do, it becomes easier to break the cycle of self-destructive negativity.
The proof of the success of CBT techniques is in how it improved my own mental health. After applying them to my life and finding success, I determined that I wanted to help others with similar struggles to mine find a clearer and more positive state of mind, so I trained as a therapist.
When I started my own therapy practice, however, I had another epiphany. I realised how inaccessible mental health therapy is for people who are on long waiting lists and can’t afford private therapy, or whose anxiety and fear is so overwhelming they can’t book an appointment. There had to be a better solution that would help more people.
Because of my own experiences with my mental health, I am very passionate and determined about helping others. I want to bring a positive change and reach more people who were looking for help., including those that can’t access therapy.
This passion and determination has led to the creation of the CBT Online Coaching Hub. The Hub is a simple and affordable way for people to access the same knowledge and techniques that they would in a CBT therapy session and is already changing the lives of many. I am proud to say that I have found a way to help many more to take control of their own mental health through the use of an online platform. See CBT HUB for more information.
My mission is to EDUCATE, INSPIRE and SUPPORT as many people as I can, so they can take control of their own mental health.
