CBT Therapy in Wolverhampton – Also available Online
CBT Therapy (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) is a “talking intervention” 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 ‘thinking errors‘ or ‘traps’ that people frequently ‘fall into’ as a result of previously learned or socially conditioned thinking styles.
At TranceForm we can help you to cope and overcome many mental barriers and limitations using CBT 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 its primary focus is on your life TODAY rather than what may have ‘happened’ in the past.
Occasionally 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!
CBT Therapy sessions are often referred by GP’s as an alternative to the prescribing of anti-depressants and has been proven to be a very effective therapeutic technique for dealing with limiting beliefs and cognitive distortions.
CBT Therapy is one of the NHS’s preferred therapies due to the fact that it produces measurable results over the course of the sessions.
What Happens During Sessions of CBT Therapy?
CBT Therapy involves uncovering, understanding and then changing those 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 CBT Therapy the Right Strategy for Me?
CBT 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 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 CBT Therapy is a proven way of doing this.
How Much Does CBT Therapy Cost?
How Many Sessions of CBT 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 will require different amounts of effort and time to change), (b) the amount of hard work and effort you put in during the time in-between sessions, and (c) the depth and nature of your problem.
As a guide, people will generally attend CBT Therapy for anywhere from 10 to 30 sessions, and in some cases, longer than this.
