Cognitive Behavioural Therapist?
What is Cognitive Behaviour
CBT is an established form of counselling / psychotherapy which
aims to help the client to identify unhelpful patterns of
thinking and behaviour, and discover new more helpful ways of
thinking and behaving.
CBT is a well researched area of therapy and has been evaluated
by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence
(NICE) as an effective form of treatment for specific problem
areas experienced by clients.
Arranging an Assessment
An Assessment session is usually held as a
first step to explore whether this approach may be helpful
to you and how you feel about working with the Therapist.
Subsequent sessions of CBT (usually one hour) will be
dependent upon the nature of your difficulties as to the
number of sessions you will require. It is likely that
undertaking some work in between your sessions to help you
achieve your aims will be recommended and this can be
discussed with your therapist during your assessment.
Meeting with a CBT Therapist
important that you feel safe and secure with your
therapist. Most therapists working here are Associate Therapists of the centre who have
undertaken training in specific CBT skills and
techniques. Many of the Associate Therapists are
Accredited with either BABCP (see
www.babcp.com) or BACP
adhere to clear professional and ethical standards of
practice. Many of the Associate Therapists also have a
professional background in a range of health and social
care professions including Psychology, Nursing and
Social Work. Please do enquire of your therapist their
professional training and background as they will be
happy to answer any questions you may have either before
your Assessment session or during any agreed treatment
