How a CBT Therapist can help

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is defined as a science based psychological approach to overcoming problems and emotional distress.

Clinical trials repeatedly reveal that working with a CBT therapist can be effective in the treatment of a wide range of problems.

Choose a BABCP accredited therapist

As a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist accredited by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, choose Mike and you can be assured of work to defined professional standards and professionalism at all times.

National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) approved

No other psychological treatment has an evidence base to match that of CBT – that’s why the National Institute of Clinical Excellence, commonly referred to as NICE, clearly recommends the work of a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist as the preferred treatment route.

Taking the premise that how we feel is strongly influenced by our behaviour and our thoughts, as your BABCP accredited therapist, Mike will help you overcome problems by teaching new adaptive ways of thinking and behaving.

Working under NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) guidelines, your CBT therapist will help you:

  • Understand your problems
  • Understand what is maintaining them
  • Identify and test out solutions to deal with the issues affecting you

Focus on the ‘here and now’

Rather than analyse the supposed childhood causes of psychological problems, Academy Psychotherapy appreciates that people are experiencing difficulties with issues that feel very much current and of the moment.

A talented CBT therapist and BABCP accredited therapist like Mike will never be dismissive of past experiences, but will only explore these issues if they have significant bearing upon maintaining present problems.
