Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Recommended by the NHS, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a hands-on and practical form of therapy that focuses on creating a positive change in the patterns of your thinking and behaviour. CBT looks for practical ways for you to make positive changes in your daily habits, routines and outlook, improving your state of mind and quality of life. CBT tends to be a short-term therapy which has been shown to be effective for a number of different mental health concerns. Your Cognitive Behavioural Therapist will provide a secure and welcoming environment for you to work through practical techniques that are unique to your circumstances.

What can Cognitive Behavioural Therapy help?

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Alcohol misuse and addiction
  • Sleep problems and insomnia

When treating long-term physical health conditions, CBT looks to support and help people cope better with their symptoms rather than cure physical symptoms.

What to expect

As a client, you will meet regularly with an experienced, qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist for sessions lasting 50 minutes. The content of your discussions is completely confidential and safe, and there are no wait times involved. At The Mind Body Clinic, we can offer immediate help, often on the same day of enquiry.

You will work with your Cognitive Behavioural Therapist to discover and analyse problems you’re experiencing to be able to find ways to change unhelpful thoughts and behaviours. You will then be asked to practice your given techniques. The relationship with your therapist is one without judgement, but with complete respect and total acceptance.

Outcome

You will be able to trust and rely on your therapist as an empathic, understanding companion who will “walk beside you” while you work towards achieving your goals. CBT is different to other talking therapies as it looks to the present rather than the past to facilitate a positive change. Your Cognitive Behavioural Therapist will look at your current circumstances and difficulties and provide a scientifically-based explanation for your cognitive processes so that you can begin to better understand any vicious cycles you may be experiencing any negative thought patterns or habitual behaviours. Your therapist will then apply a hands-on and immediate approach to changing any cognitive cycles that may be negatively impacting on your daily life.
