Many people can benefit from CBT though some don't find it helpful. It's important that you find therapy that feels right, suits you and meets your needs.
If you are looking for therapy that focuses on solutions, works towards specific goals, using practical techniques - then we can work together on tackling unhelpful thinking and behaviour patterns you might have.
I will encourage you to focus on your thoughts and feelings. You will actively be making decisions about content and structure of your sessions. There will be a fair amount of self-reflection and home practice, so at the end of your treatment you will feel well equipped to deal with future upsets in life confidently, as if you are your own therapist.
CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and is based on the idea that the way we think about situations can affect the way we feel and behave.
CBT focuses on the present and looks ahead to the future. The way you feel now may well be the result of negative thinking about the past or the future. Your feelings may even be caused by the way you react to everyday situations. CBT will help you to understand and deal with negative thoughts and emotions as they arise.
There is significant clinical evidence proving effectiveness of CBT in a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions.
