Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Sometimes, through no fault of our own, the thoughts and behaviours we rely upon to help us cope with problems can actually maintain the problem.
The aim of CBT is to help you explore how you think about your life and break free from those unhelpful patterns of behaviour
In this way, you can be introduced to techniques that aim to build variation to thoughts that may be distorted or polarised and help explore the possibilities for gaining more adaptive responses and behaviours. This combined approach is highly effective in managing anxious feelings or low-mood symptoms and is one of the reasons CBT can be said to be the Gold Standard approach adopted by the NHS.
Using CBT I will help you to set clear goals and develop new, positive ways of coping with the problems you may be experiencing in your life right now.
