Personal statement

Using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is a scientifically proven treatment, Aaron takes a person-centred approach so you can work together to treat a range of conditions and optimise wellbeing. These include depression, Bipolar Affective Disorder, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, autism spectrum disorder, addiction and personality disorders.

Aaron’s approach as an evidence-based practitioner incorporates other scientifically backed therapies such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Schema Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy involves looking at our thoughts, emotions, physical symptoms and behaviours which occur when we are triggered by an internal or external event. Through looking at one’s experiences in this way we can reach a greater understanding of ourselves, what maintains our problems and look at ways to achieve the desired change.

Taking a person-centred approach to understanding and treating any difficulty you may be experiencing; together you can work together to develop and achieve goals for your treatment.
