If you are finding that negative thoughts are starting to regularly impact on your everyday life and general functioning then Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can be an effective solution.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a positive, structured form of therapy and has proven to be beneficial for depression, anxiety, phobias, insomnia and confidence building. It can give you direction, enthusiasm and solutions by teaching you to channel your thoughts more positively, to identify your automatic thoughts and to recognise common cognitive distortions. By using strategies and techniques to work on key areas of difficulty Cognitive Behavioural Therapy will give you skills to reduce the irrational thoughts and replace them with stronger, more positive thoughts.
How does CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) work?
CBT teaches how your thoughts affect your feelings and behaviour and ways to change those thoughts.

- Teaches you additional specific skills and techniques to combat your main concern
- Helps you to think more positively and make changes
- Is structured and works with facts
- Uses goal setting and self practice
- Is time limited
- Is a joint effort between the client and the therapist – We work together to reach your goal
At our initial session we will use the time to get to know each other, talk about how CBT works, discuss the main area you need support with and put together a proposed agenda.
Initial Session cost: £35.00.
All future sessions can be booked individually. Cost £45.00 each session.
Sessions are currently available on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays.
To be beneficial most CBT programmes require an average of 6-10 sessions (some more, some less) depending on the concerns. Therefore discounts are available on a block booking of 4 or more sessions.
Each CBT session will take place at consultancy rooms in Biggleswade, Beds or if appropriate your workplace. Each session lasts 45 minutes and although flexible, sessions are usually booked weekly or fortnightly.
