WHAT IS CBT?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talk-based therapy which looks at how you think about yourself, the world around you and what the future may hold. It explores how your thoughts control how you feel and behave, and how they are all interlocked.
CBT combines cognitive therapy (analysing what you think) and behaviour therapy (analysing the things you do).
By breaking your problems down into smaller parts, CBT helps you to deal with what it is that you are finding overwhelming and shows you how to challenge any negative patterns which may be the cause of your problems. This results in improving the way you feel and enhances your state of mind.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM CBT
At your first session, I will take the time to fully explore what it is that's making you feel not at your best. We will look at the causes of the issue, what it is that's keeping it going and making you feel the way you do. I will then research treatment options to help you to reach your optimum.
All sessions are confidential and work only on what you feel comfortable with.
Treatment sessions then last 45 to 60 minutes, once a week or fortnightly. The length of treatment can vary, but it can be between 5 and 20 sessions.
