What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy ?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a psychological intervention that aims to improve mental health.

Often the way we THINK affects how we feel and what we do.

How often have you thought something dreadful was about to happen? There has been no evidence for this, but you felt it anyway! How did you allow this FEELING to affect your day? Maybe you have avoided socialising or leaving your home because of how you felt?

Perhaps you feel compelled to carry out a very rigid and time-consuming ‘routine’ before leaving your home and this is starting to affect your life, your work or relationships? CBT can help you to address these common reactions to emotions and feelings.

CBT is essentially a treatment for depression and a range of anxiety disorders, such as: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Generalised Anxiety (chronic worry) and Social Anxiety.

 

CBT has a very strong evidence base and is the most researched form of psychotherapy.

CBT is collaborative and requires the client and therapist to work together to develop new strategies for change. These strategies are usually ‘tested out’ in between sessions.

My Approach

Although I use primarily Cognitive Behavioural techniques in treatment, I draw on elements of Compassion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness. I provide a non-judgemental, safe and comfortable space for clients to talk about their distress or anxiety and to tell me about what has gone on in their lives to bring them to therapy. READ MORE
