Personal statement:

As a CBT therapist, Maureen’s approach is to show clients how to identify any irrational thinking and behaviour behind their emotional problems.  Clients are encouraged to manage their thoughts and behaviour in a more rational way, so that the resulting outcome has a positive impact on their lives.  Maureen deals with a wide range of issues such as work-place stress, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, anger management, fertility issues and pain management.
