Welcome to Clear Mind CBT. I hope this website will give you an overview of what I can offer and how I can help you to overcome some of the challenges you may be facing. I understand that taking that first step to exploring and talking about your difficulties can be challenging but I hope that by taking this step, you can begin to see a path towards a happier future.
If you’re experiencing depression, anxiety, or other intense emotions then speaking to a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist may be beneficial to you. You may notice a feeling of dread at the day ahead or that you’re held back from achieving the things you want to in life. You may feel shy or nervous, notice changes in your body or struggle with sleep. You may be self-critical or notice difficulties with motivation or energy levels. You might have a phobia that you wish to work on or to lose weight. These are just some of the areas that CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) can help with.
My name is Andrew Kemp, I’m a fully qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, accredited with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I have been practising CBT for over 10 years and worked with thousands of clients, within the NHS, through charities and privately.
I aim to work in a way that helps you to feel comfortable yet challenged. I speak in plain English and don’t overcomplicate things. It’s about finding the style and techniques that work for the individual and everyone is exactly that, individual.
I believe that the key to effective therapy is to have a strong, trusting relationship and for client and therapist to work together, as equals. I work hard to achieve that therapeutic relationship and find a style that works for the individual. I offer a free consultation and should you feel that I am not the right fit for you or your needs then I would be happy to direct you towards other therapists in the local area.
