Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a short-term therapy, between 6 and 12 weekly sessions, for those experiencing mild to moderate anxiety and depression. Working together with a CBT therapist clients can identify patterns of thinking and belief which are linked to feelings that may be contributing to emotional distress and troubling behaviour.
CBT can benefit people by developing new ways of thinking and behaving which have a helpful effect on mood and the ability to cope with life’s challenges.
CBT is suitable for issues such as:
- exams – studying
- health anxiety
- lack of assertiveness
- panic attacks
- work issues, such as role change, new job, redundancy, retirement and promotion
Fees are calculated on a sliding scale depending on income. There is an initial in-depth consultation and the fee is between £70 and £160. The fee for CBT is calculated according to income bands with a minimum of £45 and a maximum of £90.
Note: missed or cancelled sessions are charged for, except for those cancelled by the therapist.
How we helped Josie
Josie came for therapy for help her with anxiety and depression. She was a high achiever, but had begun to find it impossible to reach her potential. Josie was helped to discover how she was using controlling mechanisms to manage her anxiety. A shift occurred when we considered this repeating pattern of thinking and behaviour and its causes. As a result, Josie was freed to think and behave differently.
