My name is Ben Warden and I am a BACP Registered cognitive behavioural therapist.
I have two years experience of practising with clients of all ages and from a wide variety of backgrounds
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is simply the study of how our thoughts influence our behaviour.
If you’re becoming overwhelmed with the effects of anxiety, depression or a whole host of other problems then I believe I can help, by offering relief in the short term and effective change in the long term. I offer a safe space to talk about whatever is concerning you and we’ll work together on whatever needs to be done.
We can deal with any present issue and any underlying past emotional pain, by feeling out the emotion behind the problems and understanding what’s behind the specific thoughts that are influencing problematic behaviour. We’ll increase self awareness to understand the past and affect relevant changes for the future.
The cognitive element of CBT is increasing self awareness of the automatic thoughts that are influencing daily problems and why they’re in your mind in the first place. The behavioural element is the implementation of small changes to feel better, which can change the perception of the past to affect the future.My past experience includes speaking to a wide range of age groups on varying issues. Regardless, this is a goal oriented type of therapy, even if you don’t necessarily have a specific one at the start. The reason for this is so that we’re both on the same wavelength throughout, so we both feel that the process is at least giving you small tangible results.
My fees are £45 for a face to face consultation, or £30 for a Skype or phone session. Most cards are accepted or you can pay by cash or bank transfer.
