This month our therapy of the month is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and our therapist is Julie Colthorpe who is fully accredited by British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapist (BABCP) the regulatory body for CBT in the United Kingdom. Julie adheres to strict professional standards and conduct and is also trained in Eye Movement and Desensitisation therapy (EMDR).
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy. It can help people who are experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties. During times of mental distress, people think differently about themselves and what happens to them and these thoughts can become extreme and unhelpful. This can worsen how a person feels and they may then behave in a way that prolongs their distress.
One in four of us will have difficulties related to depression or anxiety at some point in our lives. CBT practitioners help each person identify and change their extreme thinking and unhelpful behaviour. The result is often a major improvement in how a person feels and lives.
CBT and EMDR are helpful with the following
Anxiety and Stress, including
– work related stress
– public speaking anxiety
– performance anxiety
– health anxiety
– generalised anxiety disorder often referred to as excessive worry
Depression including post natal depression.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorders

CBT is recognised as the treatment of choice by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) for most depression and anxiety related problems.
