Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you feel, think and behave. CBT aims to find practical ways to help you deal with issues by breaking them down into smaller more manageable chunks. Together, the therapist and client work by noticing and addressing any unhelpful thoughts or behaviours of the client, and thinking about whether and how these could be changed.
There is a great deal of research evidence to show that CBT works effectively in treating a variety of issues. Contact Laura if you need help with daily challenges in life. Including:
Anxiety conditions including worry, panic, social anxiety, phobias OCD, PTSD, Stress
Work related stressors: work load, communication, career issues
Depression and low mood
Self esteem and confidence issues
Coping with chronic conditions
Alcohol and addiction issues
CBT can be used if you are on medication which has been prescribed by your GP. You can also use CBT on its own.
In life many of us put others’ needs before our own and therefore neglect ourselves. By deciding to come for therapy you are caring for and recognising the importance of your own needs and giving yourself time for ‘you’.
Despite working with a CBT approach, therapy may involve drawing on different counselling and therapeutic techniques that are relevant to your needs.
