Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a very practical talking therapy that teaches the link between our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.  During CBT, your therapist will work with you to identify your triggers and responses and how this may have created a habit or automatic response.  We will spend time looking at the physiological experience of the emotion and the automatic thoughts that have established and work to change them.  Work is set in between sessions to help strengthen these new thought processes and dilute the unhelpful ones.  

In clinic we often combine CBT with psychotherapy however it is possible to deliver CBT for some short term work on its own.  

CBT is particularly helpful for targeting negative thoughts, anxiety and unhelpful coping mechanisms but can be useful for any form of mental health work and change such as increasing confidence and self belief.
