An introductory 50 minute session, through Zoom, to enable the therapist and client to chat about a range of factors to learn more about the client and their current problems and identify therapy goals. The assessment session is thorough and will help to ensure that therapy is tailored to individual's needs. A short psychological questionnaire will be completed to get a snapshot of symptoms and how treatment is progressing in later sessions. Clients can ask questions in relation to what CBT treatment sessions will involve and if it's the right approach for them.

Treatment sessions are 50 minutes long and are remote through Zoom. A short psychological questionnaire will be completed to get a snapshot of how treatment is progressing, this will take 5 minutes. The majority of the session will be spent analysing the client's thoughts, feelings and behaviours to determine the effect they have on each other and the client's daily life. We will also discuss specific CBT tools and materials and the therapist will motivate, encourage and support the client to try these techniques. This is a very collaborative process, each person is unique, and will not be asked to do anything that they are not comfortable with. The approach is very much about finding what works best for them. There is time for reflection, feedback and discussion about in between session work at the end.
