Find the best cognitive behavioural therapy

Cognitive behaviour therapy, commonly known as CBT therapy or just CBT, is a form of problem-solving psychotherapy which is used to treat a number of issues including anxiety and depression. If you are struggling with your mental health then cognitive behavioural therapy techniques can be the first port of call.

We can help you to find the best cognitive behavioural therapy services nearby.

Can I get online CBT Therapy?

Yes, online CBT therapy is sometimes offered. If you are wondering how cognitive behaviour therapy works then you might wonder if the techniques can be as effective online. Most cognitive behavioural therapy techniques involve a conversation with the patient, and this can be carried out via a secure video chat.

Some people prefer CBT in person, but it depends on each individual. Some people actually would rather have their initial sessions online due to the fact that they are nervous about travelling or meeting someone new in person. Online, you can do sessions at your own pace and not have to meet anyone in person, you can remain in the comfort of your home.

How do I check the Cognitive Behaviour Therapist’s credentials?

If you are referred to a mental health professional by a mental health organization they will hopefully have done the background checks for you.

CBT therapists need a degree in mental health or a related area, and then may undergo further training regarding mental health and cognitive behaviour therapy techniques. In the USA, the National Association of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapists (NACBT) regulates CBT.

In the UK, practitioners and professionals are listed on the CBT Register and credentials can be checked here.

When it comes to mental health issues, only qualified professionals should be offering therapy.

How does Cognitive Behaviour Therapy work?

CBT tries to give you a method of breaking down overwhelming problems. It can help you to break negative thought patterns and vicious cycles of negative thoughts.

CBT can give you tools to deal with current problems and unlike some other forms of therapy and mental health counselling, it focuses on the present rather than the past.

What can CBT help with?

Cognitive behaviour therapy has a wide variety of different uses. Though different people respond differently to the treatment, its common applications as a treatment include:

  • Suffering with sleep issues.

  • Problems regarding alcohol abuse and misuse.

  • Psychosis and schizophrenia.

  • PTSD.

  • OCD.

  • Eating disorders.

  • Phobias.

  • Depression and anxiety.

  • BPD.

  • Bipolar disorder.

  • Panic attacks and panic disorders.

A lot of people associate cognitive behavioural therapy with anxiety. It is useful for those suffering from anxiety disorders but this is far from it’s only use.

How long does Cognitive Behavioural Therapy take?

There is no specific length of a course, and some people need longer than others for the sessions to take effect. Many people visit a CBT therapist for 30-60 minutes once a week, and this can continue for as long as required. From 5-20 sessions is pretty common, but some people need longer.

Like most aspects of therapy, every individual will need a slightly different approach. The best therapists will know this and flex to suit your own needs.

What Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques are used?

You will identify specific issues that you come across in your day to day life. Conversations revolve around providing you with ways to think differently and recognize how your brain slips into negative and panic-inducing thoughts.

Rather than diving into your past and working out the root causes, CBT therapists will look at your day-to-day situation and how they can help you.

What do you love most about your job?

I love creating space that empowers each client to grow towards who they would like to become. I love using thought provoking questions to help Client see and think “outside the box”, shifting their perspective in a way they never imagined.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I came across the quote from canon Angela Tilby (2017) which said:-

“A VOCATION is the place where a particular person’s deep joy meets the world’s deep need… where what is particular about us is linked to the service of others”

I have always been passionate about helping people and coming along side people to aid them achieve their goals so this was my biggest inspiration to start a business that will do just that!

Why should our clients choose you?

Much like a gym buddy or personal trainer. I help clients arrive at their desired destination quicker.

So rather than becoming dependent upon the coaching sessions, or (an expert for help), I help my clients to grow so they can reach their own goals independently, now and in the future.

I aim to do this over a maximum of 5 sessions with my clients, to generally assist them to assess their own situations and think - and act - more resourcefully about how to improve them.
