What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a psycho-social intervention that aims to improve mental health. CBT focuses on challenging and changing unhelpful cognitive distortions and behaviours, improving emotional regulation, and the development of personal coping strategies that target solving current problems CBT is a problem-focused and action – orientated form of therapy. When individuals feel worried or distressed it is easy to fall into negative thinking or behavioural patterns, CBT can make people aware when this is happening and change the negative patterns into a more positive way of thinking.

Free 20 minute chat

You can arrange a free 20 -minute consultation chat via telephone with one of our therapists. All you have to do is complete the Contact Us section and a message stating you would like a telephone consultation and one of our team will respond within 48 hours, and will be able to answer any questions that you have regarding therapy.

First Session

What to expect in your first session is always a much asked question. You would have already had a free consultation via the telephone with your therapist if you requested one or have had contact via email.

Your therapist will have emailed you over documentation required to sign and bring back on your first appointment which consists of contract and COVID-19 safety precautions (don’t worry if you don’t have a printer we have spare copies of them in the therapy room).

We appreciate the first session can be a bit daunting, however your therapist will welcome you and will make you feel at ease. You have already taken the first step by contacting us and booking an appointment and are ready to go on the journey of dealing with any problems that are affecting your life. You will have a chance to talk over what your hopes and goals are that you would like to gain from therapy and a collaborative plan will be agreed between your therapist and yourself.

What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives, we need to stretch our minds.
