What Is CBT?
CBT is an effective type of psychological therapy used to treat a range of common mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety. This type of therapy works to help you manage different situations or problems by changing your responses to unhelpful thoughts and changing behaviour that isn’t helpful to you.
Your therapist works with you to reach an understanding of the origins of the difficulty. The focus of treatment tends to quickly move to what is maintaining the problem. The aim of CBT is to break this maintenance cycle in the pursuit of your personally chosen goals. In this way CBT is an active change focused type of therapy.
CBT teaches new effective coping strategies to help you deal better with difficulties even after your therapy has finished.

What Our Clients Say
Miriam aged 53
Can’t put into words how much you helped me “get better” Anne-Marie. Thanks just doesn’t do it! I’m living a good life again.
Joy aged 40
I am forever grateful for our sessions as they made such sense to me and have changed the way I view myself. I didn’t think therapy could make much difference but this has been so enlightening. I hope I don’t need to come back to you as I’m feeling so good now but it’s reassuring to know your door is open for a top up appointment.
Donal aged 27
Everything that I learned in CBT has stuck so that now almost a year on I’m handling work stress so much better. I’m glad I took a chance on CBT and thanks for making it a non preachy encouraging experience!
Peadar aged 60
I would 100% recommend CBT and I would have been a doubter to start with. I got such a different perspective on a particular long standing belief that helped to fully lift depression.
