What does CBT involve?
CBT is a
time-limited, solution-focussed approach that emphasizes collaboration
and active participation. Following an initial
assessment session, during which the therapist will explore the problems
you are facing and check that you are both able and willing to
participate in this sort of treatment, you are invited to commit to a
series of weekly or fortnightly sessions. Each session lasts 50 minutes,
and you and your therapist will agree tasks for you to do in between
sessions. Each week you will be able to assess your progress using one
or more questionnaires.
The number of sessions will vary, depending on the nature of your
problems, but most people require a minimum of eight sessions.
Complex or long term issues may need up to twenty sessions.
