CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a type of talking therapy that we use, in fact, at our therapy rooms in North Tyneside.
CBT focuses on the idea that your
are all connected. Furthermore, if you can change your negative thought processes into positive ones this will positively impact other areas in your life.
Thereafter, this leads you to learn how to cope and adapt with new and potentially stressful situations. In conclusion, if you can change the way you think you can then change the way you feel and behave.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy North Tyneside – who can it help?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can work for many different people with many different problems such as:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Helps You Cope
The aim of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is to help you cope with things that seem like large problems which most of all feel over- whelming.
CBT helps by breaking these feelings down into much smaller, more manageable thoughts. Consequently they the feel considerably less over-whelming.
As you learn to change negative thoughts and behaviour patterns, you will simultaneously then learn how to cope with these over-whelming events. Most importantly you will feel better about them.
This should then leave a lasting impact. Moreover you will, in the future, know how to deal with stressful or upsetting situations or events if they should they arise again.
How often should you have CBT?
At Blue Talking Therapies in North Tyneside we recommend you have a session with a therapist at least twice a week. Subesquently you will then be able to feel and understand the benefit of the therapy.
Our recommendation is for an average of 12 sessions. You will find that each session lasts around 50 minutes.
The number of sessions is something which can be discussed with your therapist. Meanwhile we can try to adapt your sessions to fit around your schedule.
