Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based psychological treatment which is effective for a wide range of emotional or physical problems, including anxiety and depression. CBT focuses on how we think and behave in response to a situation or experience, and explores how such thinking and behaviour influences how we feel emotionally and vice-versa.

CBT is often concerned with how a specific problem affects us in the ‘here and now’. It is a structured, problem-focused and time-limited therapy which is usually delivered on a 1:1, weekly, basis. CBT involves setting goals and working with a therapist in an active, collaborative manner. The length of treatment varies but is often 6-12 sessions for a mild-moderate difficulty. CBT aims to equip individuals with the skills and techniques to manage their problems on their own.

The CBT service is provided by postgraduate students completing their training in a BABCP-accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapies. Students are closely supervised in their practice and will be available for scheduled time slots to provide therapy in relation to anxiety, low mood, anger, low self-esteem, perfectionism, sleep problems, chronic health problems, bereavement and trauma.
