Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based talking therapy developed in the 1960’s and widely used today. It has been well researched and measured and is proven effective, often being the treatment style of choice in both public and private health sectors.
CBT is a more dynamic and practical approach than counselling. It is helpful for issues such as anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, interview, exam and public speaking nerves, stress, anger issues, relationship issues and low confidence.
It works by helping you to make sense of problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. The therapist will work with you to look first at the situation, then at how you are responding to it through your thinking, feeling, actions and emotions.
CBT is a solution-focused therapy, creating a set of tools that you will use in the future for many different situations. In other words, priming you for a realistically happier and calmer way of being.
Best results are gained from having 6-8 sessions, one or two weeks apart.
