Dr Carly SandercombeCognitive behaviour therapy practitioner psychologist
To understand my client's difficulties I use a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach incorporating elements of Health Psychology, such as goal setting, and other psychological models. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression but can also be useful for other physical and mental health problems.
During the initial consultation we will discuss any difficulties that you are experiencing and what you hope to achieve from therapy. During further sessions we will work together to break down your problems into their separate parts, such as your thoughts, physical feelings and behaviours. We will work collaboratively to analyse these areas to work out if they are unrealistic or unhelpful, and to determine the effect they have on each other and to your physical and/or mental health. Sessions are then focused on how to change unhelpful thoughts and behaviours and start to make positive changes. Between sessions you will be asked to practice these changes into your daily life.
I provide a safe, comfortable and confidential environment in which together we can explore your difficulties and work together to start to make positive changes and enhance your health and wellbeing.
