About Therapy

The primary aim of the therapeutic relationship is to ensure a safe place for the patient to engage in treatment.

Cognitive Therapy (CT) is a form of psychotherapy, founded on the premise that the way we think and feel directly influences the way that we behave.

This talking therapy allows me to form an assessment of the patient and form a case, gathering information from the patient that describes their current difficulties and symptoms. The process is collaborative in nature; it provides a framework that enables me to inform and plan the course of treatment. The process helps the patient to identify factors that contribute to their symptoms of depression. The process helps the patient to normalise their experience and work with the therapist to identify treatment goals.

An example of this is the where I ask the patient to think of a recent example of a situation that illustrates how their depression is impacting upon their life. I work through standard therapeutic models to conceptualise the problem, working with the patient to discuss how his/her thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviours are affected. This process supports the establishment of the therapeutic relationship, through the collaborative approach.

This process provides a unique picture that helps the patient to make sense of the development of the maintaining factors to low mood and, at this crucial stage of normalising the process, enables the therapist to instil hope in the patient that they can overcome their current problems; a fundamental aspect of the therapeutic relationship.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBT?

CBT is a short-term, goal-oriented psychotherapy treatment that takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. Its goal is to change patterns of thinking or behaviour that are behind people’s difficulties, and so change the way they feel. It is used to help treat a wide range of issues such as anxiety and depression.

CBT is the talking therapy of choice, recommended by The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

 

How does CBT work?

CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts.You're shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.

 

 

 

What conditions can CBT help with?

CBT has been shown to help with many different types of problems. These include anxiety, depression, panic, phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia), stress, bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder and psychosis.

CBT may also help if you have difficulties with anger, a low opinion of yourself or physical health problems, like pain or fatigue.

 

How does CBT help?

CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.
