Good thinking - it's what works best.

What Is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is a type of psychological treatment that can help people with common mental health problems. CBT can also help anyone struggling with difficult personal issues.

Can Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Help With My Problem?

CBT has been recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence and has been clinically proven to help with General Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Drug and Alcohol Addiction Panic Attacks, Phobias, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and OCD. CBT can also help with other issues that may be affecting the quality of your life such as: Relationship difficulties, Self Confidence, Jealousy, Work Related Issues, Identity Crisis, Obesity, Personal Abuse, Stress related ill health. Anger management, Pain relief.

How Does Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Work?

National studies have shown it to be the best long term solution for most psychological problems. It works by helping people understand that we can change the way we feel by changing the way we think and behave. CBT involves looking at the way automatic or ingrained thoughts and beliefs can be distorted, unrealistic or even harmful. It is thought that CBT works better than other styles of counselling because it creates a better balance between change and support. The goal is to break down old unhelpful habits and practice new realistic ways of thinking that improve self confidence and wellbeing.

What Is Cognitive Hypnotherapy?

Cognitive Hypnotherapy combines Cognitive therapy with Clinical Hypnosis using theories based on modern neuroscience known as Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Since much of our behaviour is driven by the unconscious mind, access to this level is gained through hypnotic language and the power of suggestion. Hypnotherapy is essentially used as a tool to deliver and reinforce the benefits of CBT.

Can Anyone Benefit From CBT?

Most people go through phases in their life when they need some help. Often this is following some kind of loss, crisis or unresolved issue. For others the problem may be a more specific disorder such as OCD. In my experience anyone can benefit from a course of CBT because it teaches new thinking skills for life that help you feel better fast.
