Steve Gibbin - Cognitive Behavioural Therapist
DipCBT, Mental Health Nurse.
Hello, my name is Steve Gibbin. I am an experienced CBT therapist and a Registered Mental Health Nurse with over 30 years’ experience.
In 2017 I trained as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, completing my postgraduate diploma in CBT at The University of Salford.
I am particularly experienced and skilled in working with people suffering from anxiety, depression and trauma related problems.
Additionally, I have specific experience of helping adults with ADHD who need help to manage symptoms such as problems with organisation, time management, organisation and planning. Also short-term memory problems and anger management issues.
What is CBT?
CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behaviour that are behind people’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel. It is used to help treat a wide range of issues such as anxiety and depression.
How does CBT work?
CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. In your sessions you are shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.
What Conditions Can CBT Help With?
CBT has been shown to help with many different types of problems. These include:
Sleep or Insomnia
Social anxiety and specific phobias
Trauma and PTSD
In my practice I can support those who struggle with any of the difficulties listed above. I can offer you a confidential, caring and non-judgemental therapeutic environment and assist you in finding a positive way forward for your mental health.
My main focus is working with adults with anxiety & depression and I have a special interest & experience in ADHD.
I also offer a welcoming space for the LGBTQ+ community.
