“Mental Health problems do not define who you are, they are something you experience”. Beginning a therapeutic journey can be frightening, I provide a safe, confidential space to help people explore and understand their thoughts and the way it influences their behaviour. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ) is a talking therapy for mental health conditions and has many benefits over other forms of therapy. CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts and behaviour are connected and can been applied successfully to a wide range of mental ill health, including depression, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder.

Hi and thank you for taking the time to look at my profile, I hope that you feel I can help. Acknowledging that you might need help and then looking for that help can seem like a daunting task and finding the right person to help you may feel even harder. I believe that therapy should be a collaborative and non-judgemental process where we build a trusting therapeutic relationship to understand and work through your difficulties with aim that you are able to improve your experience of your life. A key to this is listening to you as the expert of your own experience and finding the approach that best fits with you.

Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) Counsellors

How does cognitive behavioural therapy work?

Cognitive behavioural therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioural therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioural therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioural therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioural therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
