If I attend for CBT Therapy will you contact my GP?

Your CBT treatment is confidential and there is no need for GCTC to inform your GP that you are receiving treatment, unless otherwise agreed at the outset. 

Your details will be held on file for legal purposes only.

As all such information is subject to the Data Protection Act – your details and notes will not be passed on to any third party, at any time, for any reason.

Who will know that I am attending Therapy?
No-one will be give information regarding your attendance unless agreed before hand. Sometimes it is a condition of treatment that certain people have to know that you have attended e.g. a court order or whoever pays for your sessions.
Will I have to pay?
If you are coming to counselling/therapy through your Employee Assistance Programme (run by your work), have been sent by an insurance company and have agreed with your private health insurers, then it is likely that you will not be required to pay.

Some insurers require you to pay first and claim back the fees from them. If you chose to go to an independent practitioner then it is likely that you will have to pay.

Through this organisation you may be eligible for a low paid worker/unemployed discount. Sometimes we have students learning CBT who will see you for a small charge (conditions apply – please ask)

Will Cognitive Behavioral Therapy cure me?

The aim of counselling and psychotherapy is to allow you to cope better with your life and to feel more positive.

That’s what happens with most people.

Initially some people will feel worse before they feel better as the process of change can be uncomfortable, but this passes quickly as the benefit of change begins to take effect.
