Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Alison is fully qualified to post graduate level in high intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a well recognised and scientifically researched psychotherapeutic treatment for a number of psychological and emotional difficulties. As its title suggests it works by targeting the way you think (cognitions), the way you relate to your thoughts and the way you behave which in turn affects your mood, your physiology and your brain activity. A number of ‘3rd wave’ CBT therapies are now proven to be very effective including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness, these techniques may also be included in the treatment of your difficulty.

CBT is a more focussed form of therapy than counselling and is generally shorter term. During the assessment phase we will develop a thorough understanding of your difficulty, how it began, its progress and what maintains it. You will then be given a written report which will clearly state the goals you are aiming for in therapy with a date by which you will aim to achieve these. Once this is all in place we will begin the work of making manageable changes so that you can get your life back on track; hopefully a better, healthier track than ever before.

CBT has been shown to be an effective form of psychotherapy for a number of psychological difficulties including:

  • Depression
  • Social Anxiety
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Phobias including emetophobia
  • Panic disorder (frequent panic attacks)
  • Agoraphobia and claustrophobia
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Health Anxiety
  • Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders


The cost for CBT is £65 per session.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

Due to COVID I am currently providing my therapy services online. I will re-evaluate this as the situation changes and hope to be back to providing face-to-face therapy in spring next year if not before. Please rest assured that the therapy can be as effective when delivered remotely.
