Welcome to Room Psychotherapy

Specifically qualified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), We offer a Counselling service in Holywood, County Down, BT18 and also offer remote therapy online. We can offer weekday and weekend appointments and assessment sessions are usually available at short notice. We currently offer therapy for indiviudals over 18 and also couples following a CBT approach. (CBCT).

​CBT is a form of talking therapy that has been empirically proven to work effectively with symptoms of Anxiety and Depression. It is goal orientated, collaborative and focused on helping you with the problems you face in the present moment. CBT teaches skills that challenge your thoughts and behaviours to find realistic, helpful alternatives.  Longer-term work can help you understand your perspective on yourself, others and the world. Therapy can also be undertaken as a preventative measure to maintain wellbeing.

CBT is the NICE guidelines choice treatment for Depression (mild to moderate) and anxiety disorders. Critically, all interventions are informed by the research.


​​Room Psychotherapy has expanded to offer a team of associate CBT therapists that are all passionate about therapy, mental health awareness, breaking the barriers of mental health stigma, breeding positive attitudes and motivating healthy change. We are also trained in other modalities and look to utilise this knowledge to work collaboratively with you to find what works and what helps. I hope you feel Room Psychotherapy offers the right people, expertise, care and ideas to work with you as you seek to make room for your mental health, whether finding Room in Holywood or online.
