COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT) & COGNITIVE ANALYTIC THERAPY (CAT)

WHAT IS IT?

Psychological therapy is a talking treatment that has proven effectiveness in overcoming various emotional problems.  I use two main approaches in my work: CBT - aims to reduce distress by identifying and changing unhelpful patters of thinking and behaving. CAT - sees emotional distress as rooted in past experiences and relationships, which lead you to repeat unhelpful patterns in your relationships now; therapy involves recognising these patterns and replacing them with more effective ones.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY TREATMENT?

An assessment will enable us to develop a shared understanding of your difficulties, how thye developed and what keeps them going.  We will then identify goals and a plan for treatment. 

WHAT IS IT  MAY BE USEFUL FOR?

Problems with depression, anxiety, panic, trauma & PTSD, anger, OCD, low self esteem, difficulties in relationships, problems related psychosis, personality disorders and dissociative conditions.

HOW LONG IS A SESSION ?

Sessions last for one hour. The number of sessions can be discussed and agreed following an assessment, but will generally range from six to 24 sessions depending on the presenting problem.
