CBT identifies Thoughts, Feelings and Behaviours as cogs which are responsible for the development and maintenance of our difficulties, such as depression and anxiety...

How CBT can help you...



What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidenced-based 'Talking Therapy' which has been proven to be effective in treating a wide range of mental health difficulties. 

How does CBT work?

How we think about things has a direct effect on how we feel and behave. When our thoughts become troublesome we often change our behaviour to help cope with how we feel. This in turn encourages the development and maintenance of debilitating symptoms, such as anxiety and depression.

Using evidenced-based treatment protocols, CBT seeks to break down these cycles of destructive thoughts and behaviours while supporting you to adopt alternative and more healthier ways of thinking and behaving, thus reducing symptoms while improving health and well-being.

What can CBT treat?

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends and endorses CBT for the treatment of a wide range of disorders including;

  • ​Depression

  • Low Self-esteem

  • Anxiety (including)

       - General

       - Social

       - Health

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

  • Panic

  • Phobias

  • Anger

  • Perfectionism

  • Sleep/Wake Disorders

  • Pain Management

What you can expect

CBT places great emphasis on therapy being a 'collaboration' between client and therapist.

We will work together to identify symptoms, disorders, maintaining factors and appropriate treatment interventions to help improve both mental and physical wellbeing. There is an expectation that any identified learning opportunities during session are tested out and reflected on outside of therapy as this learning will provide focus for treatment direction.
