About

Trying to find the right therapist or counselor can be a baffling experience, with so many options and so much variation in the quality and type of treatment on offer. At Good Thinking Therapies all of our team are Qualified, Experienced and Accredited experts in a type of talking therapy Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (or CBT for short). CBT is the #1 recommended form of therapy for Depression and Anxiety by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) and the NHS. Unlike many others we don't offer a 'Mix and Match' approach to therapy styles. Evidence shows that this reduces your chances of getting better as fast as possible and staying well and we love to see you reach your goals just as much as you do!
CBT is a highly skilled type of therapy. The basic theory of CBT is that how we feel is based on how we think and act in any given situation. Our therapists will work with you as individual to identify the patterns in your thinking and actions that might be accidentally working against you, and maintaining your difficulties. We do this by working shoulder to shoulder with you- we are the experts in the research and treatment models, and you are the expert in your experiences and how you see the world around you. Together we form a treatment plan that suits you. By introducing tools and techniques aimed to address the 'vicious cycles' and turn them into 'coping cycles'. CBT is a very active, dynamic and practical process and is not just a sit down discussion or being told what to do by someone who isn't in your shoes- together we write things down, drawn things out, we use crib sheets and instructions for specific tools and all the while ensure that the things you learn are learned for life with a comprehensive plan on what has worked for you to refer back to whenever you need it.
We are committed to increasing accessibility for evidence based therapy and for that reason we offer a number of different options to suit everyone. If you want to just talk to one of us about what you are going through and see what options are available (including NHS services and how to access these if you prefer and where to find accredited therapists across the field of counselling and psychotherapy) then please get in touch and we can offer you a complementary telephone consultation. If you are ready to start your CBT journey then we offer Individual Face to face, Skype or Telephone sessions. We also offer Couples CBT which is a highly sought after additional specialty. Alternatively we will be offering our fantastic Stress Management Classes from November 2018 onwards and we also offer links (via our website) to some excellent free Self-Help materials for a wide range of problems.
