How you think and act affects how you feel. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a training approach that helps you question and take control of troubling thoughts and patterns of behaviour. It can assist you in various situations and improve both mental and physical health. This can include sad, self-loathing thoughts, irrational fears or compulsion in behaviour such as washing your hands or turning off lights.
Our Psychotherapists will work with you to recognise problematic patterns of thought and behaviour and teach you practical ways to adopt helpful and healthy habits to overcome the same. Typical examples are catastrophising, where your thoughts lead you to imagine the worst possible outcome, and self-sabotage, where you take everything personally and may experience victimisation.

CBT is a solution focussed therapy concentrating on clear goals specific to you. It doesn’t consider your past or family history and offers a focus on solving current difficulties. This therapy is often time-specific, with weekly sessions spread over 8-10 weeks.

CBT is helpful for:
Addiction (alcohol, drugs, gambling, gaming)
Anger and stress
Anxiety (social and general anxiety, panic attacks)
Eating disorders
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Relationship issues
Substance abuse

CBT can also assist people experiencing physical problems such as:

  • Chronic pain
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Functional Neurological Disorder
  • Insomnia
  • Migraines


Our psychotherapists often adopt an integrative approach, using a combination of the different therapies mentioned above or more psychological evidence-based approaches, such as:

Mindfulness-based therapy
Emotionally Focussed Therapy
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
