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.

We specialise in helping people manage stress more effectively by developing practical tools they can use in both work and in their life. Stress is a part of life and understanding what is going on physically, when we feel anxious, can help us find our own ways of de-stressing and letting go of the unhelpful thinking we have over situations we often can't control. We understand that many people are struggling with their mental health and well being at this time and may find the changes in their life overwhelming. Asking for help is the start to taking control and feeling better. We offer Walk & Talk sessions at a suitable local venue. These sessions are a very effective for people who are feeling stressed & anxious and/or Depressed who want a safe place to off load their concerns. They combine being out in the fresh air gaining a greater self awareness of the body and brain connections. We also run Equine Facilitated Coaching sessions at a number of locations across Staffordshire. These provide a fantastic experience of how we can learn to find a sense of inner calm that we all need before we tackle anything difficult. We have many families who have xchildren with Learning Difficulites like ADHD or ASD who find these sessions really helpful in learning how they can best support their child and gain support for them and the siblings.

What do you love most about your job?

I love working with people who want to make a positive change in their life rather than put up with the same old negative habits and fears that hold them back. I wonderful to support people to reach for their dreams and succeed with something they want to improve. The coaching sessions are about giving people time to think so they can start to understand their problems more clearly, often for the first time and sharing this with them is very precious to me. Stress is a fact of life we can't remove, anxiety and depression are not, but often we feel they are an inevitable outcome of being under stress. If we can learn better ways to manage stress we can build our resilience to cope with lifes ups and downs.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to help people before they fall ill with stress or give up on a dream to change their life because it seems to difficult. I had worked with horse industry for many years as my first career. When i started on my journey to change career to become a psychologist in 2003 i began to work with companies where often the environment and the way they treated staff was very toxic and stressful. This is still a reality in many workplaces and peoples lives and i wanted to be able to offer more one to one support for people struggling to cope and try to help them before they end up leaving their jobs with the ill health that is a symptom of long term stress.

Why should our clients choose you?

I bring together the science and put it into practise to help my clients develop a plan of action to work through as we move things in a more positive direction. As a Chartered Coaching Psychologist i have to stay abreast of the latest research findings and work within ethical guidelines. I use this knowledge in a practical way that helps people develop clearer thinking about their issues and a realistic plan to make the changes they want to make. I have helped many clients move their life on to a more productive, yet less stressful track and i am confident how ever you feel right now you will feel much better when you start to take control and change the issues you are not happy with. I offer a free introductory session to all new clients to see if we want to work together so nothing to lose in making contact.
