Counselling in Cheltenham

CBT Can help with a wide range of problems including….

Stress, Depression, Self Image, Exam/Presentation Stress, 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.
