CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) is a structured talking therapy where the main focus is how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours impact on your overall wellbeing. You will learn new ways and stategies to deal with experiences that you have had. How you think, behave and feel are all linked and by changing one of these things it is possible to make changes in the other areas. You will learn tools to help you implement change and this knowledge and skills will allow you to help yourself in the future
The work we do together will look at how you think or behave in certain situations and using different skills that you practice between sessions you will be able to start to change how you feel.
