What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

I would describe CBT as a structured, time bound therapy which equips a person with strategies to deal with certain default negative thinking and unhelpful behaviour patterns. By doing so, they experience a positive shift in their feelings. It is an active process that requires a person to engage in tasks between sessions to bring about this change.

Who is it for?

CBT is very effective for any one suffering from anxiety disorders and depression. Some of the common anxiety disorders are Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, PTSD, Phobias, Body Dismorphic Disorder to name some.

What is the therapy process?

The therapy process starts with an assessement session. Following that depending on the severity a set of sessions are scheduled, normally on a once-a-week basis. The number of sessions are based on the NICE guidelines. Every session the progresses in assessed.

How can I access the therapy?

I provide Face to face sessions at Banstead in Surrey, bordering Sutton in London Borough of Sutton in South London. Mode information is available from the contact page.
