What is CBT?
Cognitive behavioural therapy is a form of therapy that involves looking at how our thinking and behavioural patterns have formed, how these contribute to our emotional and mental distress and working out ways to solve them. For example, a person with depression may realise that their thinking about how capable or good they are, formed from problems they faced in the past has led them to think in a negative way. We can then challenge and change these patterns. Someone with anxiety issues may have learned the anxiety in response to something but now the anxiety isn’t helping them, it is holding them back. We could work out ways to manage and change their anxiety through behaviour and thoughts. CBT can be anything you want it to be. In session 1 you will define these goals with my support and we can work together to make the changes you want to see. We will go on your journey your way.
In the Kilmarnock area sessions are £30 for a home visit and £30 plus the room booking fee (usually £10) for a rented room in the town centre. If travelling further afield these costs plus travel expenses will be charged. All pricing details will be done by agreement prior to session 1 and those on low incomes, unemployed or long term sick may qualify for discounts. Skype sessions are also £10 cheaper.
