Private TherapyPrivate therapy for individuals and couples
We can offer private therapy for individuals and couples. You can self-refer and we can normally arrange your first consultation within a few days.
As a training organisation we can offer a tiered system of therapists
- An accredited or experienced therapist
- A recent graduate therapist from our DipCBT programme
- A student therapist currently on our DipCBT programme
All therapy sessions last 50 minutes and the first meeting would involve an assessment of your circumstances to help establish if CBT would indeed be a useful and appropriate approach for you to engage in.
Thereafter you would mutually agree with your therapist how to progress your therapy sessions.
What CBT offers
As a therapy, CBT is an evidence based approach which has been proven to work effectively in overcoming problems and challenging situations in the here and now.
CBT works particularly well with symptoms of low mood, anxiety and reduced self-esteem helping people like you make links between their thinking, emotions and behaviours in a more helpful response to challenging situations.
How many sessions will you have?
CBT takes a focused and structured problem solving approach in working towards your therapeutic goals. It is generally a short term treatment that can last between 5 and 20 sessions depending upon the presenting problem.
Boundaries and expectations
It is important that you feel safe and supported during therapy and it is also important your confidentiality is respected.
We will work collaboratively to set realistic therapeutic goals which we will evaluate on a session by session basis.
As part of the therapeutic process we would expect you to engage in pre-agreed homework tasks between sessions to help you test out and evaluate the new skills you are learning.
