Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is now one of the fastest growing and most commonly used therapy used by people who have common mental health problems.
In the last 10 years, CBT Therapy has really started to become more mainstream and is now a recommended choice of treatment offered by health professionals such as GP's, Nurses, Psychologists and anyone who works in a health related environment. This push towards 'mainstream' was initiated by the government as they wanted to offer everyone access to psychological services, so that they can work on there problems before they become more prominent and long-term.
We have been working with CBT Therapy for years, and have worked with hundreds of patients to date. We have a extremely high treatment success rate and often use CBT Therapy with patients who are experiencing problems with:
> Depression > Low Self Esteem & Confidence
> Generalised Anxiety Disorder > Social Anxiety Disorder
> Panic Anxiety > Procrastination Issues
> Work & Stress Issues > Health Anxiety Disorder
> Bi-Polar Mood Management > Assertiveness Issues
Are your symptoms just symptoms, or is there an underlying root cause?
People accessing our service will often report a wide range of symptoms that are effecting them, however, its not always easy to identify if these symptoms are just symptoms, or if there is an underlying issues that is fueling the symptoms. For example:
Symptoms: Tiredness, lack of energy, poor concentration, sleep disturbance, & low mood.
Possible Symptom Solutions: Sleeping pills prescribed by GP, & reducing activity levels.
Potential Root Cause: Low Mood/Depression.
Symptoms: Heart pounding, dizzy, jelly legs, sweaty palms, tingling sensation over the body & dry mouth.
Possible Symptom Solutions: GP heart related check up, drinking more water, avoiding situations where symptoms occur.
Potential Root Cause: Panic Anxiety
Each one of our CBT Therapy Experts is fully skilled and has years of experience in being able to expertly distinguish between a 'symptom' and the 'root cause'. This is why we never start CBT therapy with any of our clients unless we have clearly defined the problem, and focus on this precisely in therapy.
From experience we know that working on the symptoms may have a short-term positive impact, however, long-term the problems could re-surface. However, by working on the 'root cause' our aim is to help you to overcome the symptoms in the present, as well as ensuring these improvements are consolidated in therapy so that the gains made in therapy are for the long-term too.
