COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY (CBT)




Practitioners

Marilyn Upton

Brief explanation of the therapy


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a talking therapy. It can help people who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties. What people think (cognitive) can affect how they feel and how they behave (behavioural).

By working respectfully and collaboratively, practitioners can help each person identify cognitive and behavioural patterns that might contribute to the problems they are experiencing.  Supporting individuals in their quest for change can help facilitate how a person feels and lives.

What can the client expect at the appointment


CBT requires a solid working relationship between patient and therapist – this is fundamental to treatment being a success.  It is important that time is spent during this first appointment for patient and therapist to get to know each other. It is very much an assessment gathering exercise on both sides.

What will happen in a session

The client will discuss the problems with the therapist and together explore the areas that might be addressed.  They will then plan out a programme of action which will be mutually agreed upon.

How many sessions should the client need before they see a result

This will depend on the problem being treated and the therapist being seen.

What can the therapy help

CBT has been known to help the following:

  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Dissociative identity disorder
  • Anxiety related problems
  • Hypochondriasis
  • Insomnia
  • Panic attacks
  • Agoraphobia
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)



Who would benefit from this type of therapy


Anyone who wishes to better their quality of life.

Footnote


Marilyn links CBT with Stress Management, Life Management and Hypnotherapy. Each one is used to help the client achieve changes to make their life better. When working with Marilyn Upton, she will at some point take the client to a pleasant state of Relaxation where things can be seen very clearly and positive thoughts can replace negative ones.  Marilyn works with children and adults.
