  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.
  • Treats:  depression, anxiety and relationship difficulties.


CBT – How it works

  • 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.
  • CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a 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.


CBT Coaching

  • For people contemplating change in their life. Perhaps finding themselves feeling uncertain about the next steps ahead in their work or personal life.
  • Coaching aims to help people find clarity and focus to move on in ways that are aligned to their values and principles
