Cognitive Behavioural (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and changing negative patterns of thinking and behavior. It is a widely used evidence-based treatment for a variety of mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and eating disorders.

CBT is based on the idea that a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are interconnected, and that changing one can lead to improvements in the others. In CBT, the therapist works collaboratively with the client to identify negative thought patterns and develop strategies to challenge and change them. This can involve teaching the client new skills for coping with distressing thoughts and emotions, as well as helping them to develop new, more adaptive beliefs and behaviors.

The therapy typically involves regular sessions with a therapist, with homework assignments and exercises to practice outside of sessions. The duration of treatment can vary depending on the individual and their needs, but CBT is often a relatively short-term form of therapy, with many people seeing improvements within a few months.

One of the advantages of CBT is that it is a structured and goal-oriented form of therapy, with a focus on specific problems and symptoms. It also has a strong evidence base, with many studies demonstrating its effectiveness for a range of mental health conditions. As such, CBT is often recommended as a first-line treatment for many mental health problems.

CBT can be delivered in a variety of settings, including individual and group therapy, and is also used in online and self-help formats. It can be tailored to meet the needs of different individuals, and can be particularly useful for those who are motivated to change and willing to actively participate in the therapy process.

Potential benefits of a free initial consultation

During this first session: potential clients have the chance to learn more about you and your approach before agreeing to work together.

Offering a free consultation will help you build trust with the client. It shows them that you want to give them a chance to make sure you are the right person to help them before they move forward. Additionally, you should also be confident that you can support your clients and that the client has problems that you can help them cope with. Also, you can avoid any ethical difficult situations about charging a client for a session in which you choose not to proceed based on fit.

We've found that people are more likely to proceed with therapy after a free consultation, as it lowers the barrier to starting the process. Many people starting therapy are apprehensive about the unknown, even if they've had sessions before. Our culture associates a "risk-free" mindset with free offers, helping people feel more comfortable during the initial conversation with a specialist.
