Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help you make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts.
In CBT, problems are broken down into 5 main areas:
CBT is based on the concept of these 5 areas being interconnected and affecting each other. For example, your thoughts about a certain situation can often affect how you feel both physically and emotionally, as well as how you act in response.

We offer all of our 1:1 therapy virtually either through a digital platform or the telephone. You can learn more about how this works by visiting our information on virtual therapy.
STEPS OF THERAPY
Online CBT is exactly the same as face-to face in almost every way - you will work with your therapist but the conversation will be via online video conferencing instead of face-to-face.
We also offer telephone therapy. Our therapy is delivered securely and at the time of your session, you simply log in or wait beside the phone and you will have access to engage with your therapist.
Home practice is an important component of CBT and other evidence-based treatments for psychological symptoms. Developed collaboratively during therapy sessions, home practice is used to rehearse new skills, practice coping strategies, and restructure destructive beliefs.
1:1 sessions usually take place once a week and last up to 1 hour.
