Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) is an effective and proven form of talking therapy that is commonly used in the workplace to help employees.

Manage Thoughts and Actions

With the help of a fully trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, the process can help free people from unhelpful thought patterns. The therapy works by helping you understand, manage and change your thoughts and actions. It can work well for people suffering with problems like:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder)
  • Panic attacks
  • Phobias
  • Eating disorders
  • Physical pain
  • Fatigue
  • Low self-esteem
  • And a range of other issues

How CBT Works

A Cognitive Behavioural Therapist will use a range of effective techniques to help you analyse your patterns of thought, feelings and behaviours. As you examine your thoughts, feelings and triggers, you will be able to find negative cycles. Your therapist will work to help you break these cycles, allowing you to lead a more positive life.

CBT works by:

  • Identifying your negative thoughts – you will identify your negative thinking and your triggers using diaries, notes and discussions
  • Challenging unhelpful thoughts and feelings – you will challenge, question and test your negative thoughts, feelings and actions. These could be thoughts about yourself, others or the world around you
  • Relaxing – your therapist will help you to focus on positive things and teach you ways to relax
  • Managing problems – your therapist will help you to effectively manage your problems in your daily life
  • Focusing on the here and now – you will focus on and deal with your problems now, rather than concentrating on exploring your past

How Long Will CBT Take To Work?

Every patient is different, so no two people will need exactly the same amount of therapy. Generally, patients will see their therapist for an hour a week for around 12 – 16 sessions. Freedom from your symptoms may be gradual at first, but many people find the therapy creates long-term improvements to the quality of their lives.
