What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a practical problem solving approach to managing a wide range of emotional, behavioural and psychological issues. It does this by identifying and altering the causal links between our thoughts, emotions, actions and physiological sensations. The research evidence clearly demonstrates that CBT is highly effective in the management of problems such as anxiety, trauma, depression, stress, sleep problems and low self-esteem. CBT uses established psychological techniques to identify the current problem, implement changes to underlying cognitive and behavioural patterns and improve personal resilience for the future.
What is the aim Of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?
The aim of CBT is to provide an opportunity for you to explore your problems and learn new techniques for improving your psychological health and well-being, in a safe, confidential and supportive environment. Our role is to help you through this process without criticism or judgement, to listen to your difficulties and provide feedback and suggestions based on our professional observations and training. If at any time we feel that we cannot help you in this way, we will offer to refer you to another service or recommend an alternative approach.
What is our approach to therapy?
Think CBT uses established CBT methods to:
√ Complete a full assessment of your problems .
√ Develop a joint understanding of how your problem affects you personally.
√ Agree a treatment plan.
√ Deliver evidence based CBT techniques.
√ Teach you how to apply these new techniques in your everyday life.
We will discuss each stage of the therapy process with you and we will ensure that you understand the approach and the reason for applying the agreed CBT techniques.
We will only use therapeutic techniques that are completely safe and relevant to your problems.
How do sessions work?
Sessions normally last between fifty to sixty minutes and will usually take place on a regular weekly basis. The total number of sessions will depend on the nature of the problem and the agreed treatment plan, but will usually involve between six and twenty individual appointments. Your progress towards achieving your therapeutic goals will be regularly reviewed and this will help determine the duration of therapy. Your therapist will normally expect to discuss ending therapy a minimum of two sessions prior to the agreed end date.
How is therapy structured?
Our approach to CBT involves identifying and committing to specific therapeutic goals. We will help you with this process and you will be encouraged to make a firm commitment to undertaking CBT exercises and assignments outside and between sessions.
What about confidentiality?
All information shared during therapy remains completely confidential. The only circumstances in which a therapist may divulge confidential information is if it is judged that you present a potential risk to yourself or another person. In these circumstances, the therapist will if possible discuss this with you first. In the interests of safety however, the therapist reserves the right to break confidentiality without prior consultation should they consider the matter urgent. Think CBT Ltd. is also registered with the Information Commission for the purposes of data protection.
Who sets our professional practice standards?
All Think CBT Cognitive Behavioural therapists are fully qualified members of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) and bound by the BABCP's ethical code of practice. These standards are available to view at www.BABCP.co.uk In addition to BABCP Accreditation, we are also professionally accredited members of the BACP, BPS, CNHC, CIPD and GHSC.
How are charges made?
Charges vary by clinic location and are based on a 50-60 minute session. Discounts are available depending on the number of pre-booked sessions and advertised promotional offers. Payment can be made online by bank transfer or in person at the end of each session.
How are confidential communications managed?
All Think CBT client communication is conducted by email for speed and efficiency. Our website uses SSL certification and all client emails are marked as confidential. As email is not a fail-safe form of communication, you must inform your therapist if you wish to receive information by post.
What do I do if I need to cancel my appointment?
If for any reason you are unable to attend an agreed appointment, you should endeavour to provide a minimum of 48 hours notice by calling 01732 808 626 or by emailing email@example.com. If you fail to attend agreed sessions without providing 48 hours notice, you will be required to pay a remittance of 50% of the agreed session costs.
