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.

I have found a calmness and inner clarity

Thank you so much for all your help and support whilst we worked together. I have found a calmness and inner clarity that I have ever had before. You helped me find something I never believed possible. You listened, you cared, you were there for me in ways that nobody else ever was. You showed me the way and you never gave up on me. I have seen Counsellors before, who did nothing to help me. I think that we find people like you once in a lifetime and I'm so pleased that I did. Thank you so much for all that you did. Simply, thank you!!!

Your kindness, warmth, patience, strength and skill have enabled me...

I wanted to say a huge thank you for being with me over the last few months. Your kindness, warmth, patience, strength and skill have enabled me to start thinking about things we have uncovered in a way I couldn’t have done before

Gentle thought provoking questions

I would like to thank Ian for all his help over the past 15 months. His gentle thought provoking questions allowed me to think more clearly about myself and together we came up with solutions and ideas to improve my situation. I leave you a more relaxed, aware person who is able to consider my own needs as well as the people around me and I am much happier for it.
