About me

My name is Christabel and I am a CBT and EMDR Therapist. I have worked with people from every walk of life and it is my mission to improve lives as much as I can and hope I can help you too.

There is a lot of stigma about mental health problems; many people are ashamed, afraid and confused. The resulting effect is that people often feel guilty, angry and ultimately worsen and prolong the problem by staying silent. I provide a safe, regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings, and enable you to feel empowered and learn that you have the capacity to succeed and recover.

I have 10 years of extensive NHS experience of understanding and helping individuals manage their emotional distress, challenging life events, and complex psychological issues. I have developed a depth of knowledge and a passion to help and support people with mental health difficulties.

I do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach and view each individual as an expert of their own experiences. I approach each session with genuine care, warmth and curiosity and ensure that therapy is a collaborative process. I draw from various conceptual models and therapeutic approaches and explore both present and past difficulties. I usually start by helping people to learn ways of improving their lives in the ‘here and now’. This is followed by helping people connect their current problems to their past.
