What is CBT?

Mental health problems are real and affect 1 in 4 of us every year. Now more than ever, worries about things like money, health, job security and benefits can make it harder for people to cope. Known for its quick results, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has proven effective for people needing that extra bit of support with the tough times we all go through in life.

Our experienced CBT therapist will teach you techniques and tools to help you overcome your problems. For example, the most common thing we do when anxious is avoidance. Although avoiding an anxiety provoking situation gives immediate relief, it is only a short-term solution. You never get to find out whether your fear about the situation and what would have happened is actually true, which psychologically reinforces the message there is danger. CBT helps you challenge this and break the cycle. Don’t let anxiety or depression control of your life.

EMDR
In addition to CBT, we offer Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. EMDR can help symptoms of trauma, as well as other emotional conditions. Extensive scientific research has shown that it is the most effective and rapid method for healing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). EMDR uses bilateral stimulation, either left/right eye movement, sound or tactile stimulation, which repeatedly activates the opposite sides of the brain. This helps the neurophysiological system, the basis of the mind/body connection, to free itself of blockages and reconnect itself.

Our CBT and EMDR appointments are always delivered on a personal, 1:1 basis and carried out in a private treatment room. The number of sessions you need depends on the difficulties you have and will typically be between 5 and 20 sessions, of an hour duration. We are registered with private medical insurers and also work with solicitors.
