What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects the way we act. In turn, our actions can affect how we think and feel. The way our body feels is linked to our emotions and our thoughts. The therapist will support you by helping you to notice whether any thoughts or behaviours are unhelpful, and you work together to consider whether these could be changed.
 
The therapy is offered in group settings (e.g., Mood Management, Overcoming Worry, Stress Management), over the telephone, or face-to-face. Depending on the type of CBT offered, the length of therapy varies between six and twelve sessions and each session lasts between thirty and sixty minutes.

What is Counselling?

Counselling can help you to explore your feelings to gain a better understanding of your problems, and can help you to come to terms with distressing events such as losing a loved one, divorce, health issues or job concerns. The therapy helps you identify feelings and make sense of them to enable you to make changes. The counsellor will also encourage you to explore alternative ways of coping.

The therapy is offered in group settings (e.g., Relationship Group, Confidence & Communication, Loss Group) or face-to-face. Depending on the type of counselling offered, the length of therapy varies between six and eight sessions and each session lasts sixty minutes.
