Learning the Scripts

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based form of psychotherapy which looks at how we think, feel and behave. It is an effective treatment for a range of common mental health problems and is recommended by NICE guidance. CBT aims to empower people by teaching them how to understand and overcome their problems. It is a highly collaborative treatment, with the ultimate aim of making people their own therapist.

Restructuring

Cognitive Restructuring looks at challenging the way people think. This helps them to see things from a more balanced perspective, which ultimately leads to a better mood and improved wellbeing. 

Behavioural Activation

Behavioural Activation (BA) is a technique which  works on the link between activity and mood. BA improves symptoms of Depression by increasing levels of activity and positive reinforcement in day to day life.

Worry management

Worry Management helps people to recognise when they are worrying unnecessarily and teaches them techniques which help them to keep worries under control. 

Behavioural Experiments

Behavioural experiments allow people to test out negative predictions in a safe and controlled way. Tackling these predictions allows people to face their fears and gain new perspectives. This ultimately leads to more confidence and less anxiety.
