Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective treatment for many mental health and emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and eating issues.
Work one-to-one with an experienced CBT therapist and learn new coping skills and helpful tools that you can draw upon throughout your life.
"After my first anxiety episode, I felt confused and unsettled. I’d never experienced anything like it and didn't know how to stop it from happening again. My therapist identified the negative thought patterns through a systematic approach and helped me re-establish a healthier perspective. The methods she used are simple but powerful. After only a few sessions, I started to see an improvement."

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a practical therapy that usually focuses on overcoming a particular problem. You can choose to do your CBT sessions either online via video or text, or in-person.
During your course of CBT, your therapist will help you draw out the links between thoughts, emotions, actions and bodily sensations and help you to understand how they’re all interconnected.
The cognitive part of CBT helps you to identify and manage unhelpful ways of thinking. The behavioural part relates to the actions you try to take to prevent feared outcomes from happening. How bodily sensations and emotions are interpreted and acted upon also feed in, creating vicious cycles.
CBT can also help you identify the ‘triggers’ that lead to negative thinking patterns and teach you how to replace them with more balanced thoughts, leading to more helpful behaviours.
CBT can often also involve looking at ways of coping with emotions and learning new strategies to do so. An example of this could be anxiety management or anger management.
Your therapist may give you tasks to complete in between your CBT sessions to help support the work you do together during therapy, for example gathering information or practising new skills. With our app, you can always have your therapy resources to hand and strengthen patterns.
Your therapist will work with you to develop coping tools and strategies that you can continue to use after your sessions and draw upon throughout your life.
