About CBT

CBT consistently shows itself to be amongst the most effective therapies for anxiety-based problems and is cited by The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) as the therapy of choice for many of these disorders. It is used daily throughout the NHS psychological services.

CBT is a talking therapy but is composed of techniques and strategies which can help to maintain your mental health over time. If you prefer the idea of a more structured therapy, then this is for you. The number of sessions will vary from person to person, but over time you will build your knowledge, allowing you to understand how some of your thoughts and actions are keeping you trapped in an unhappy, threatening or turbulent place.

You will learn both cognitive and behavioural strategies (such as helping you to spot and address your unhelpful thinking and techniques addressing anxiety management) as well as more targeted strategies which help in the treatment of diagnoses such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Post Traumatic Disorder (PTSD). Being an accredited member of the BABCP means that you can trust that any intervention is evidence based and tailored for what you need. The number of sessions will vary depending on your diagnosis and how you progress, but on average range from between 6-20.
