Will it work?

Whilst a successful outcome to therapy isn’t certain, I believe there is good reason to be hopeful that it will work for you.  This hopefulness is based on three reasons.  Firstly, a strong body of research supports the efficacy of CBT.  Secondly, based on this research the NHS is convinced of the efficacy and has adopted a CBT-based approach to make psychological services more widely available.  Thirdly, my experience of working successfully with a range of clients and their issues.

A strong body of research supports the efficacy of CBT

Researchers argue that CBT is the current ‘gold standard’ of psychotherapy for three main reasons.  Firstly, CBT is the most researched talking therapy.  Secondly, systematic results generally favour CBT over other talking therapies.  Thirdly, CBT mechanisms and theoretical models of change are in line with mainstream models of the human mind and behaviour.

Approach validated by the NHS

The NHS state that CBT can be effective for a range of psychological issues including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, eating disorders – such as anorexia and bulimia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), psychosis, schizophrenia,  sleep problems – such as insomnia, problems related to alcohol misuse.  CBT is also sometimes used to treat people with long-term health conditions, such as: irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), fibromyalgia, and chronic pain.

My experience is that most client make progress towards their goals.

I have successfully worked with clients with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, complex grief, self-limiting beliefs, OCD, and PTSD.  I have also personal experience of the effectiveness of CBT for anxiety and self-limiting beliefs.
