What is CBT?

CBT, or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, is a talking therapy. It has been proved to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults, young people and children. CBT looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects the way we act. In turn, our actions can affect how we think and feel. The therapist and client work together in changing the client’s behaviours, or their thinking patterns, or both.

​Hope Therapy has a team of Therapists, so depending on what you are looking for support with we can help identify the most suitable person for you to work with.

“The average time to start working with clients is just 3 days.

How is it delivered

The number of sessions you need depends on the difficulty you need help with.  Your primary focus is on how you think and act now, instead of looking at and getting help with difficulties in your past.

​​What to expect during your sessions

​During your sessions, your counsellor will discuss your specific difficulties and set goals for you to achieve. Your Therapist will help support your progress, by giving you ideas of how to practice and reinforce your learning between sessions.

The aim is to help you find ways of integrating your learnings so that you incorporate your new leanings into your life after your sessions have finished.

His approach, style and ability to help me to be invaluable.

I have been going to see Ian for CBT over the past three months and have found his approach, style and ability to help me to be invaluable. A key aspect of his help has involved being able to have real and frank conversations with Ian about my feelings, worries and concerns and to be given the tools and techniques to deal with these in ways that work for me. His approach is careful and hugely reassuring. I am seeing Ian less now, but will go from time to time for 'top up sessions' to make sure that I am kept on the right path to full recovery from being very stressed and to an extent depressed, when I first went to have CBT with Ian.

I was feeling pretty low and helpless

Thank you for all the help you have given me over the last 3 months. I was feeling pretty low and helpless when I first came to see you but I now know there is light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you doesn’t seem enough for the help you give, you have such a calm persona. Keep up the excellent work you do.
