We currently run fully funded Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) groups between 8 and 13 weeks to help towards improving wellbeing.

The CBT groups are short term and can help you to deal with symptoms you are currently experiencing.

CBT is a short-term therapy which 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, bipolar disorder and psychosis.

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. It should be interesting, collaborative and supportive.

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