What is CBT

CBT focusses on how our thinking and behaviours influence the way we feel. CBT sessions provide you with a toolkit to help you understand what is going on for you in all aspects of your emotional difficulties. During sessions our therapists work collaboratively with their clients to help them identify those feelings and work out why they are in a difficult place at the moment. They will then work with their clients and take time to explore how this has developed, what maintains their difficulties and how they can move forward and make positive changes in their lives. We offer a confidential service in a therapeutic private setting. Our therapists can also provide telephone consultations when needed.

Why should I choose CBT?

 

There is a great deal of research evidence to show that CBT has worked effectively in treating a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions. This research has been carefully reviewed by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), which provides independent, evidence based guidance for the NHS on the most effective ways to treat disease and ill health for the NHS. CBT is recommended by NICE as a treatment in the NHS for many different conditions. Some of these include:

  • Depressive symptoms

  • Generalised Anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Self Esteem and Confidence Issues

  • Stress, both daily and work related stress
