CBT helps us to understand our lives better, and teaches us techniques to challenge and change old patterns, relieving distress and building resilience. It can help us break out of the vicious cycles that keep us where we don’t want to be.

CBT involves:-

 

Working in a focused and problem-solving way  The therapy aims to be time-limited, with an end in sight. This can keep the cost down.

Working together to understand your difficulties  I work alongside you, focusing on your goals for change.  I do not impose interpretations or judgements but help you come to a better understanding of your life, actively looking for solutions to your problems and/or working towards acceptance.

Challenging negative thoughts and behaviour, helping you to replace them with new and more helpful ways of being  I will help you understand why you think and behave as you do and support you in working towards a happier self.

A flexible approach to your needs  Whilst working in a focused way for day-to-day problems, CBT can take time to look at the roots of your distress, often from your childhood and/or family of origin. This increased understanding can help you to break free from the power of the past, giving you new choices.
