COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
CBT is a talking therapy that works with the impact that thoughts and behaviours have on the way you feel. In observing these relationships CBT can help you to alter your thinking and behavioural patterns in ways that lead to increased mental and physical well-being. It can be used as one of a range of approaches in coaching, to increase emotional intelligence and handle troublesome feelings and unhelpful behavioural patterns.
It is also one of the most effective treatments for:
- anxiety and stress
- chronic worrying
- social anxiety
- obsessive compulsive disorder
- health anxiety
- low self esteem
- panic attacks.
What does CBT involve?
CBT is a time-limited, solution-focused approach that emphasizes collaboration and active participation. Following an initial assessment session, during which we explore the problems you are facing and check that you are both able and willing to participate in this sort of treatment, you are invited to commit to a series of weekly to fortnightly sessions. Each session lasts 50 minutes, and there will be agreed tasks for you to do in between sessions. Each week you will be able to assess your progress using one or more questionnaires. The number of sessions will vary, depending on the nature of your problems, but most people require a minimum of eight to twelve sessions. Complex or long term issues may need up to twenty sessions.
