A Guide to CBT Counselling

CBT Counselling

CBT Counselling can help adults, children and couples to deal with a range problems including:

Research indicates that CBT Counselling is currently the most effective talking therapy available and as such is recommended by the government body NICE for a range of mental health problems.

Your own attitude will also make a difference. If you go along determined to make the most of every session and be completely honest about yourself, it is more likely to work. If, as a result of what you learn about yourself, you are prepared to face your fears and risk making changes in your life, it is more likely to work.

Following an assessment (1-3 sessions depending on the type of problem) your Therapist will outline an individually tailored treatment plan which you will work on together over a number of sessions (see ‘How long does it take’). The principle aim of CBT Counselling is to help you to become your own therapist so sessions focus on teaching you a range a psychological and practical techniques to help you overcome your problem which you will practice in between sessions.
