CBT Explained


What to expect from CBT

A confidential and private one to one CBT service is offered.

CBT is a step-by-step process and relies on the active participation of the client and therapist.  A trusting relationship between therapist and client is crucial as this allows for active collaboration of both parties.

An initial assessment is conducted to better understand the problem, and if you wish to carry on, treatment options will be discussed. If CBT is not suitable, other therapy options will be explored.

There is no obligation to move on to the treatment phase.

The first couple of sessions are used to assess and define the current problem and to become familiar with thoughts, behaviours and feelings to establish how the problem is maintained. Once the problem has been defined, goals are set to direct the sessions and guide treatment. The treatment phase of therapy will then begin. This phase aims to manage unhelpful behaviours and thoughts to affect emotions, which will create lasting change.

How to Book a Consultation

A free 15 minute consultation is offered to determine whether we are a good fit for therapy and session prices will also be discussed.

If we are a good fit, you may book your initial assessment, which lasts for up to an hour.

Sessions are up to 50 minutes in duration and are usually scheduled on a weekly basis unless otherwise agreed.

Prices are flexible depending on the location of the therapy.

Telephone or Skype CBT can also be arranged.

It was really easy speaking to Sara. She got in contact with my straight away and completely understood my problem. I am really looking forward to starting my sessions
