How CBT Counselling can help you

Many of us have times of worry and anxiety that we find difficult to cope with. Do you find yourself in a worry trap, going over and over the same thing that is concerning you?
  • Are you panicking and worrying that there is something seriously wrong with you?
  • Are you worried about failure?
  • Are you believing that you are never good enough at work, in a relationship?
  • Do you believe that you will fail at work or school?
All these and many more; are the worries that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Counselling can help you with. What you think affects your feelings, your behaviour and gives a consequence that keeps you in the vicious cycle of worrying. CBT is well researched and is used as a successful intervention in the treatment of Stress, Anxiety and Depression.
Christine is trained as a CBT Counsellor. She has taught Counselling with a model of CBT at a Further Education College. Christine has had success with her clients by teaching them the tools from CBT, as a take home therapy; empowering them to change unhelpful negative thinking.

Stress, Depression, Self Image, Exam/Presentation Stress, CBT for Teenagers, OCD, Post Traumatic Stress, Bereavement and Loss, Anxiety, Weight loss, Young People & Children, Couple Counselling, Work Stress, Family Stress, Anger Management, all benefit from coming to Counselling in Cheltenham.

CBT counselling is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You’re shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.
