Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is generally considered to be helpful for those suffering from anxiety and/or depression. It focuses on the links between thoughts, feelings and behaviours and how they can contribute to psychological distress. In working together, we come to an understanding of how the problem you are experiencing is created and maintained. This is done by identifying unhelpful thoughts and counterproductive reactions to a given situation.

How much does Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT)  cost?

  • My current fee is between £60 – £75 per one hour session

  • Therapy sessions last for 60 minutes. I offer both short term and long term therapy.
  • I am happy to provide more information about this on request.

  • Sessions are usually offered on a weekly basis particularly at the outset of our work together as this helps to build up momentum for change to occur. Towards the close of therapy you may choose to have more space in between sessions.

Change unhelpful patterns of thought

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy has a formal working structure. I help you to explore what the problem is that you wish to address, how it is impacting on your day to day living and what you want to be different. An  aspect of this is focusing on skills and strategies to help change the unhelpful patterns of thought and behaviour and thus facilitate change that you have identified as your goal.

In order to help deepen and build on the learning gained in each session, I will be encouraging you to try out simple tasks between sessions that we have agreed. Towards the close of our therapy there is opportunity to create an individual plan/toolkit to remind you of what you have learned and how you can continue to put it into practice once therapy is ended. This can be very helpful for those times when the symptoms of anxiety and /or depression may be experienced again.
