About Us

The Centre for Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, is an independent, specialist, psycho-educational, counselling and training centre for a broad spectrum of psychological/emotional problems.

Eclectic and holistic in approach, our underlying ethos is inherent in a treatment rationale which treats the whole person; body, mind, and spirit.

We also employ a Doctor to carry out all medical examinations as part of a well persons' stress reduction programme, as well as specialist staff for clients individual needs.

Cognitive Therapy was developed in the United States in the early nineteen seventies, by Aaron Beck, but only in the last five years has it made a significant impact on stress prevention and therapeutic interventions, in the United Kingdom.

The goal of the therapy is to help clients uncover their dysfunctional and irrational beliefs, reality test their thinking and behaviour, and build more adaptive and functional coping techniques. By developing new and specific skills, and teaching a model for future problem solving, clients become, in effect, their own therapists, and have a considerable repertoire of strategies to better cope with future problems as they arise.

The Cognitive-Behavioural therapist redirects clients faulty cognitions, attitudes, and behaviour, with the benefit of increased self-esteem, amelioration of symptoms, and better life strategies.

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy is a relatively short term, active, directive, collaborative between client and therapist which has a strong psycho-educational bias.

The early pre-socratic thinker Epicectus second century B. C said, "It is not what people experience, but how they interpret it, that determines how they are".

By teaching clients to step back into the position of an observer, and to hypothesis test their thoughts and feelings using the cognitive model, better alternatives in reasoning and problem solving, increased social and interpersonal skills, and raised self awareness can occur.

A re-attribution of meaning, and reinventing of a persons life come as a result of an inner transformation, when Socratic questioning and guided discovery are used to provide insight into core beliefs, and facilitate deep and lasting changes in the way people see themselves, their world, and the future.
