Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (commonly known as CBT) is a form of psychological therapy based on the idea that “what we think (Cognition) affects the way we feel (Behave), and what we feel affects the way we think.”

It is built on five key CBT principles and directly addresses a number of ‘unhelpful thinking styles’ or ‘thinking traps’ that people frequently ‘fall into’ as a result of previously learned or socially conditioned thinking styles.

Unhelpful thinking styles are adopted as a direct result of the fundamental ‘underlying’ core beliefs and values that we develop over our lifetimes.

Negative or adverse life experiences may often lead to the production of limiting beliefs which are any set of beliefs that somehow limit your ability to get on with your life.

At Tranceform Psychology we can help you to cope and overcome many mental health problems and limitations using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy’s proven methods.

By helping you to understand and manage your thoughts and beliefs we can teach you how to create different outcomes – feelings and behaviours.

As a specific strategy for change, it may be more suited to people who do not want to “go back” or “re-visit” past negative experiences in their lives and it’s primary focus is on your life TODAY rather than what may have ‘happened’ in the past.

Occasionally, however, it may prove to be useful to ‘consider’ past experiences and how you may be using ‘life strategies’ that you learnt during those years, but the critical point within cognitive behavioural therapy is that is NOT the past affecting you TODAY, but rather how you THINK about the PAST Today!

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy sessions are often referred by GP’s as an alternative to the prescribing of anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medication and have been proven to be a very effective therapeutic technique for dealing with limiting beliefs and cognitive distortions.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is one of the NHS’s preferred therapies due to the fact that it produces measurable results over the course of the sessions.

Cogntive Behavioural Therapy is particularly well suited to the range of Anxiety problems.

What Happens During Sessions of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy involves uncovering, understanding and then changing those beliefs and thoughts that lead to behaviours and feelings that are causing your current problems.

We will help you to “get to the bottom” of these thought patterns, see them with a more “balanced” point of view, and then set about changing those behaviours using proven tools and methods.

These ‘behaviour’ changing tools are based on the simple premise that behaviours which produce helpful outcomes tend to be reinforced and repeated, eventually becoming new habits.

Is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy the Right Choice for Me?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy does not suit every person and one of the principal reasons is that a lot of work and effort has to be put into the sessions in order to get the best results.

A great many people suffering mental health problems are looking for some sort of ‘magical’ cure or ‘miracle’ process that allows them to make fundamental changes without having to make too many sacrifices and put in a lot of effort.

Whilst this would be really fantastic if it was true, the fact is that the only person who can really make the necessary changes is yourself, and if you are willing to put in the effort, then Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a proven way of doing this.

Tranceform’s Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Course

We offer a 10 session fully structured course of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy called Tranceformental CBT  with various level of clinical support which can be purchased in our shop.

Our CBT course is organised as a complete ‘system’ during which you will learn and develop a range of understandings about your current beliefs, create new and more effective coping skills and acquire a comprehensive suite of strategies for going forward in life free from mental obstacles.

How Many Sessions of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Will I Need?

The number of sessions required is dependent on a number of variable factors, including:

(a) How long you have been suffering from your problem (this is because changing thinking patterns that have been embedded for 6 months or 20 years may require different amounts of effort and time to change)

(b) The amount of hard work and effort you actually put in during the time in-between sessions, and

(c) The depth and nature of your problem.

As a guide, people will generally attend Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for anywhere from 10 to 30 sessions, and in some extreme cases, longer than this, but our course has a very defined ‘pathway’ that is designed to help you achieve excellent results as quickly and effectively as possible.

Certainly the majority of clients get the results they want within the programme’s 10 week period.
