Adult Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Ashford & Egerton
My name is Lynn Garbutt an experienced therapist based at both CBT and Counselling Kent Ashford and Egerton practices. I am qualified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for adults, specialising in Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT) which comes under the CBT therapy umbrella. I undertook my diploma at ‘The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy’- Regents University, London.
At cognitive behavioural therapy Ashford I pride myself on offering a confidential, warm and supportive environment, to help you explore your concerns and to establish what might be stopping you moving forward. I consider myself sincere, practical and encouraging and will help you understand the relationship between beliefs, feelings and thoughts and the effect these may be having on your emotional well-being.
I take an active role in helping people with their particular concerns and my approach is based on empathy and understanding and the belief that you are the person who knows the most about your own experiences. I believe that it is important to consider you as a whole person in order to properly understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I will work with you to help you make sense of any overwhelming problems you might have by breaking them down into smaller parts to bring about positive change.
My career began as a tutor within Adult Education and the prison service where I taught literacy, numeracy and English language. It was here that I gained valuable experience teaching both young adults and mature students. I soon realised that her students often needed further support to overcome barriers which prevented them learning effectively such as – anger, low self-esteem, stress and/or a lack of confidence. It was during that time that I became interested in CBT and that this type therapy could help students with their barriers to learning,
In addition to the above, I have also gained experience working on a voluntary basis with The ‘Silver Line’ charity – a befriending service helping people to combat loneliness. I have supported people of different ages and walks of life who found themselves lonely and isolated for a variety of reasons but particularly when they had a significant life change. I was also a ‘Silver Line’ trainer and have worked with new volunteers in order for them to become ‘Silver Line’ befrienders like myself
