Are you looking for a licensed, friendly, and educated therapist? Then you are in the right place!

My credentials

My name is Shannon Leigh Cross, and I am a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with a 2.1 Bachelors degree with an honours in Psychology and a Masters in 3rd Generation Cognitive Behavioural Therapy including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Positive Psychology, Mindfulness and Psychotherapy, and more. I am accredited by the British Psychological Society. I also have 3-4 years experience working in the field of therapy and working with others to learn how to cope with certain life problems such as, motivation and procrastication, depression, high levels of anxiety, and others. I also work with those that want to improve aspects of their lives for instance, improve their already good relationship, have a better relationship with work, and more.

My approach

My approach to therapy is empathetic, supportive and solution focused so that you leave the sessions feeling slightly lighter and that you feel able take a deep breath. Due to the experience that I have with different therapies, I also work with an individual-based approach. This means I observe the clients wants and needs and apply a therapy and process that would suit them, rather than the other way around.

I use my experience in CBT to have 30-60 minute sessions with my clients to talk through their problems, try to find and narrow down what the cause is, overcome the problems by allowing you to gain a different perspective/way of responding, create better long-lasting habits, and find a way of preparing you for any other occasion something like this comes in life. Basically, I will teach you the basics so that you can be your own therapist! I do this through video calls, including video and audio, or through therapy chat.

Confidentially is an important factor in my session so all of my sessions are not recorded and are completely private in that any information shared stays completely between me and you. After our first session, I will give you three documents; 1 is an ‘Intake sheet’ with general information about your health and contact details, a ‘Therapy Goals’ sheet in which you will be able to express to me the direction that you would like to go on your journey, and a confidentiality agreement.

About me

I grew up in Spain but I am English. During my childhood, I was brought up nicknamed by my parents as the ‘air fresher’ of the family! Meaning that I always somehow came with a new look and positive perspective of situations and always had a smile on my face which reflected on to others. I guess I have continued this narrative in to my adult life and into my career too and it is now my full time job! When i’m not working I love doing yoga, meditation, contortion exercises and being in nature. I also love extreme sports such as, skiing, parachuting and skydiving with my other half.

Summary:

I am an english-speaking therapist from England and currently living in Spain with a specialty in therapy for couples, teens and adults.
