About CBT

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a highly effective type of talking therapy. The key idea behind CBT is that what you think (cognitive) and what you do (behaviour) affects the way you feel. Sometimes we can find ourselves stuck in vicious cycles, where our thinking patterns and the things we're doing to try and solve a problem are inadvertently keeping the issue going, leaving us continuing to feel anxious and depressed. In a nutshell, it allows you to build self-awareness, find out what's keeping you stuck,  and then helps you to make changes in your thinking and actions in order to improve how you feel.

What's CBT Like?

We describe CBT as being ‘present focused’ - it helps you with what's going on in the here and now (as opposed to some other therapies which may focus mainly on the past).

CBT is a collaborative therapy and needs your active participation in order for it to be helpful. Think of it as we are the experts in CBT and you are the expert in you, and together we will figure things out and get you feeling better.

CBT isn't a quick fix. You can think of your therapist like a personal trainer, we'll encourage and advise you but can't 'do' it for you. Usually we'll agree helpful things for you to do in between the sessions (where you can put your learning into practice!), but don't worry your sessions will be paced - we'll decide what you do together so you stay in control.

And yes, all the hype about CBT is true - it is an evidence-based treatment intervention recommended by the NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) guidelines, and is routinely used in the NHS as the first line treatment for anxiety and depression.

Although you can’t put a price on happiness our fees range from £110-150 per hourly online session:

CBT Therapist £110

Senior CBT Therapist £130

Principal CBT Therapist £150 (our founder and director Natalie)

Payment for your therapy sessions can be made by BACS (bank transfer) or by your private health insurance company (details provided when booking your first session).

If you’re accessing therapy for a specific mental health problem your therapist will be able to give you an estimate of how many sessions they think you’ll benefit from following your assessment (usually it’s between 6-12 sessions). 

If you’re accessing therapy for mental health maintenance (i.e. wellness boosting!) then you might like to know that we can be flexible to meet your needs, whether you want weekly or fortnightly sessions or fancy monthly top-ups.
