When people experience difficulties in their lives and undergo various life stresses, the assistance of a trained therapist can help them work through such periods. I treat people with problems such as anxiety, depression, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder and panic attacks
CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) is recognised as the treatment of choice by the National Institute for health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for effective treatment for a range of psychological disorders.
CBT is evidence based psychological therapy and is the most frequently recommended form of psychotherapy. It is recommended for those who tend to have a negative automatic thought pattern which then interferes with them from living a normal life.
CBT will help you explore how your thoughts and behaviours relate to the way you are feeling and how this may contribute to your current problem. CBT is a collaborative, homework based therapy and you will be encouraged to actively contribute towards the success of your therapy. CBT will guide you in your own self development as it will help develop the necessary skills to become your own therapist once therapy has ended.
You can find out more information about CBT from the Royal College of Psychiatrists and from the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP)
