What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?

When you feel low or upset, do you often spiral into a series of unhelpful thinking patterns that can worsen how you feel? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help you notice and change your thinking patterns and behaviours so that you can break the cycle and feel better by working on the basis that our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours are all connected and influence each other. By changing one of these, we can adapt to the others.

What can CBT help with?

CBT is an evidence-based therapy and is proven to help in many areas.

Anxiety
Phobias
OCD
Depression
Panic

Research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life because it aims to break down overwhelming problems into smaller sections making them easier to manage and helping you get out of negative cycles.

Understanding that our thoughts are not necessarily the truth can be liberating!

How is CBT delivered?

After an initial consultation, you will be offered a series of 50-minute individual sessions. The number of sessions you require is individual-based and will vary based on the severity and need of your circumstances. These sessions work through setting goals, talking about the issues, working on techniques, understanding our triggers, and how we can prevent the cycle.
