Therapy CBT

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Frank Baker

At the moment due to Covid-19, I can only offer online sessions. Face to face sessions will become available again once the situation has changed.

I’m a cognitive behavioural therapist and I work from my private practice in Islington, North London. I specialise in working with depression, low self-esteem and anxiety disorders. In the CBT sessions I like to create a welcoming and informal environment in which you will feel comfortable to speak about the problems that you may be facing. Once these problems have been identified, we can then agree on the appropriate CBT techniques to help you manage and overcome these difficulties.

I offer a confidential service to adults aged 18 and over, who may be experiencing any of the following problems:

Depression or low mood
Generalised anxiety (excessive and uncontrollable worrying)
Panic attacks
Social Anxiety and Shyness
Low Self-Esteem

Please look through the pages of my website to find out more about CBT and the conditions it can help.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a short-term therapy that focuses on the way our thoughts influence our behaviours and our moods. During therapy you will learn to identify and understand the unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that maintain your difficulties. By using CBT techniques and interventions you will begin to make the relevant changes that will help you to achieve your desired goals and take your life forward in the direction that you want. Once therapy is finished the benefits are ongoing and this is partly due to the educational aspect of CBT. During treatment you will learn to acquire the skills that you can then use throughout your life. There has been extensive research into CBT and there is overwhelming evidence it is a highly effective therapy. The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends CBT as the preferred form of treatment for anxiety and depression. More detailed information can be found on the What is CBT? page.

Location

Near Newington Green with easy access from most areas in North and Central London, including Angel, Canonbury, Camden, Dalston, Finsbury Park, Hackney, Highbury, Hoxton, Stoke Newington and Tottenham.

Online sessions

Sessions are normally face to face, but I also offer online appointments via FaceTime or Skype. It would be helpful if we could meet face to face for one of the early sessions (preferably the initial consultation) but I do understand this may not always be possible.

Times

I offer daytime and evening appointments.
