Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Sometimes a greater level of support is needed, so you may have a further assessment with a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. They can help you to identify and understand your difficulties in terms of the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviour, to enable you to bring about change. Cognitive Behavioural Therapist’s usually offer 6 – 16 sessions of individual face to face therapy and can also introduce you to additional services.

Introduction to CBT Course

Our Cognitive Behaviour Therapists run an Introduction to CBT course. This is something you can access before you receive one to one sessions and is designed to prepare you for CBT. The course provides useful information about common psychological difficulties and self-help strategies that you will then be able to take away from the course and use in your daily life.

There are four sessions within the course:

  • Introduction to CBT
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress

This course runs for 12 weeks and covers a broad range of emotional difficulties, including depression, anxiety, stress, managing guilt, shame and anger and interpersonal difficulties revolving around relationships. This course focuses on a broad skills approach to managing mood and wellbeing.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) Course

Our six-week Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) course is designed to help people who have recognised they have problematic worry, usually about a range of themes. Generalised worry can be uncontrollable, persistent and cause significant distress.

It will help you distinguish between a hypothetical worry and a problem and introduce skills and strategies to address worry.
