CBT Group Courses
Our group courses are based on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and are suitable for anyone wishing to improve their general wellbeing.
Our courses can help you learn practical ways of managing your problems alongside others who are struggling with the same kind of issues.
The courses are similar to an evening class where the facilitator will explain ideas and techniques and open up discussions. The courses are very informal and we aim to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We usually have a maximum of 12 people per group.
The courses are not group therapy. While we welcome participation, you don’t have to share deep secrets or even say anything at all if you don’t want to.
The basis for most of our courses is cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT. We’ll focus on how you think so you can change the way you feel and act.
We offer six-week evening courses for the following:
- Irritability & Anger
- Anxiety, stress and worry
What is CBT?
CBT is a talking therapy. It has been proved to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults, young people and children. CBT looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects the way we act. In turn our actions can affect how we think and feel. It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.
How does CBT work?
CBT 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 manage overwhelming problems in a more effective 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.
