    I need to see a CBT therapist; how can I find one suitable for me?
    by UK Therapy Guide
    CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) is predominantly a form of ‘talking’ therapy. Once you find a therapist that you feel happy with and you have been through your first session together, they will decide how many more you need. This will depend upon the condition that is being treated and how well you respond. Your therapist will make use of this proven technique to disrupt and eradicate your damaging thought patterns, replacing them with new ones that do not cause you distress or fear.

    Many people that are suffering from anxiety and would benefit from counselling find themselves unable to find a suitable therapist to work with. Maybe they are fearful of journeying to the therapist’s clinic, find face-to-face therapy too expensive or have been placed on an NHS waiting list with no end in sight. If your anxiety is combined with agoraphobia then travelling outside can be incredibly stressful and simply not possible.
