What is The Process?
The initial session is an assessment session where your needs are assessed, and we agree a way forward.
Sessions are weekly to begin with and then can increase to fortnightly. Each session lasts 50 minutes.
The course of treatment usually lasts for approximately 8 sessions, however, there are times when longer term work is required.
During the sessions we will ascertain what needs to change and begin to understand why these problems have occurred. Work to do at home is often given so you can increase self-awareness of how you think, feel and behave whilst noticing the physical symptoms in your body.
During the process, both the client and therapist are active as CBT is highly goal-oriented and focused. This collaboration works towards achieving the mutually established goals.
The eventual aim of therapy is to teach you to apply the skills you have learnt during treatment to your daily life therefore managing your problems and stop them having a negative impact on your life
