Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
Make ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION THINGS OF THE PAST
CBT is an effective "face to face" therapy. It covers a wide range of conditions both mental and physical. Simply put it will help you to look at the way you think, what thoughts are guiding you and how they affect the way you act. There will be thoughts that are not working in your best interest and its those we work on to make a change for the better, these are the thoughts that you probably are not aware you are having.
People like to know how long it takes, that is how many sessions. 6 - 12 sessions is about average but its all about how well you work at it. The answer is that all people are different so length of therapy can vary.
CBT- what can it treat? Is this you?
It’s not uncommon for people to suffer from - Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Depression, Insomnia, Self Confidence Issues, Eating Disorders, Anger Management or Addictions. It’s estimated that 1 in 4 people will experience one of these in their lives. If you do don't worry, you are not losing your mind, they are all treatable with CBT.
BUT WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE ONE OF THOSE CONDITIONS?
I am often approached by people who cannot put a finger on their problem. The stresses of modern life, work, financial problems, relationships and home & family responsibilities can make us feel lost, direction-less, confused and chaotic. In time it can build up and can manifest as either physical, mental or emotional symptoms. Sometimes life can just catch up with us. CBT can help with this too. In fact it's worth it to have a few sessions of CBT as a preventative measure to head off future illness. There may be things happening now that could be dealt with before they escalate.
