Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) In London | Private Therapy Clinic

CBT Therapy in London, our Worldwide branches and Online

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a proven approach to psychotherapy designed to help people to develop effective coping strategies that will help them to deal with a wide range of psychological issues.

CBT focuses on a problem-solving approach to help people learn how to react in a different, more positive way to the situations that can lead to problem behaviours. By learning new strategies, you can also learn how to change your behaviour and reactions, and how to think about things in a more positive way.

CBT works best when the individual has a specific sort of problem, such as anxiety, substance abuse, pain management, an eating disorder, etc. It can also help to relieve the stress and social anxiety often associated with conditions such as ADHD and chronic health problems. By focusing on the problem and how you respond to it, you can engage with your CBT therapist in creating a new set of behaviours and reactions. Over time, these new behaviours and reactions can lead to lower levels of stress and anxiety, and to an incrementally better approach to the factors that trigger them.

Depending on the person in question, and the problems that they have, CBT can be conducted together with a range of techniques, including how to change thinking patterns, eliminating negative self-talk, mindfulness and breaking unhelpful behaviour patterns. If you have problems with, for example, substance or alcohol abuse, CBT will take place in the context of also addressing this issue in practical terms. CBT can also help people with a range of psychiatric disorders. Used in conjunction with their medication regime, it can help them in particular to manage the stress and anxiety that accompany their condition and, in the process, contribute to a reduction in their symptoms. In some cases, it can lead to medication being reduced or even becoming unnecessary.

CBT Techniques

If you come for CBT, you’ll have a series of sessions with a therapist in London, who will discuss your problems and how they are affecting you currently, offer you techniques to help you to learn a new set of behaviours, and help you to practice this new skill until it has become embedded. You’ll also be given “homework” in the form of practicing your new skills outside the environment of the office in which therapy takes place. In the process, you should experience an improvement in your symptoms. While the goal of CBT is a relatively rapid improvement and the cessation of therapy, you can always come back for a booster session at any time.
