Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

We currently run fully funded Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) groups for ten weeks, to help towards improving wellbeing.

The CBT groups are short term and can help you learn to manage symptoms you are currently experiencing.

CBT has been shown to be effective in the treatment of many emotional difficulties, for example the treatment of anxiety disorders (such as panic, agoraphobia and social anxiety). They can also help in the treatment of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar disorder.

During the programme you will discover a great deal about yourself. In particular about how you think and act when you feel negative or down. With help from your therapist, you will understand how your problems and worries can be helped. You will learn and apply some straight-forward techniques for resolution.

There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in the group because CBT doesn’t look at things in this way. CBT is an ‘active’ form of therapy so it means you’ll be working with your therapist and other group members in the group, but also completing activities yourself in between sessions.  It should be interesting, collaborative and supportive.

The therapist will take you through a course and look at specific areas of your life each week. It should help you understand what is going on and find practical ways of dealing with problematic thoughts and behaviours.

Please call us on 01223 357221 to come in for an initial meeting.

What is CBT?

The term 'CBT' is thrown around a lot and sometimes it is difficult to understand exactly what it means. 

One of our therapists, Juliette Walsh, features in the below video to discuss what CBT is and how it can help you. She uses the 'hot cross bun' to explain the ideas underpinning CBT. It also gives you a chance to hear from one of our therapists about what goes on in group therapy. 

But please do feel free to get in touch. if you have any questions at all.
