CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive behavioural therapy is a psychotherapy which offers a unique category of psychological interventions derived from cognitive and behavioural psychological models.

It is a relatively short term, focused psychotherapy for a wide range of psychological issues.

The focus of therapy is on what you are thinking (cognitions), how you are behaving and feeling, and what symptoms you are experiencing. The therapist is a catalyst, helping you to find new solutions to old problems.

CBT is an evidence-based therapy, that is, it has a proven track record based on a large body of research.

CBT can help with many issues including the following:

• Depression
• Anxiety (including social anxiety)
• Panic attacks
• Low self-esteem
• Low confidence
• Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
• Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
• Travel anxiety and accident trauma
• Childhood abuse (sexual, physical or emotional)
• Phobias
• Fears e.g. public speaking

The first session is an assessment and will give some indication of the number of sessions required.

All age groups are welcome, including children and adolescents.
