Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a short-term, solution-focused therapy that helps us to reflect more consciously on our thinking and behaviour in order to help us to think more clearly, make more conscious choices about our lives and to feel more positive about who we are and the choices we make. CBT will not help us to make deep psychological transformations at a personality level, but it will help us to be more conscious of why we behave the way we do and how we might consciously influence our own behaviour.

A course of CBT typically lasts up to 12 sessions during which time we will develop insights into our ways of thinking about ourselves, other people and our beliefs about how the world operates. By making adjustments to our previously unconscious belief systems – or our Life Script – we will start to make new and healthier decisions about ourselves and our lives.

CBT is as effective as antidepressants for many types of depression – The Royal College of Psychiatrists

CBT can be a very effective therapy for problems that stem from a known cause. Problems that stem from deeper parts of our unconscious will usually require a combination of CBT and Depth Psychotherapy.

All of our CBT practitioners are also qualified psychotherapists and will usually use a combination of Relational and CBT techniques.
