Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy in Newcastle
When things go wrong in life it’s easy to blame and criticise yourself, but if you get stuck in a repetitive spiral of negative thinking you can end up feeling hopeless, depressed, anxious and physically exhausted.
This is where Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling can help. Unlike other forms of counselling or therapy, CBT focuses specifically on the problems and difficulties that you are experiencing now, whether they come from recent events, worries about the future, or experiences from the past.
Your therapist will help you make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. This makes it easier to see how they are connected and how they affect you physically, emotionally and how you respond to them.
CBT in Newcastle - How Does it Work?
Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) comes from the theory that it is not the situation or specific events themselves that cause problems, but the meanings and thoughts you attach to them. This can start to cause you problems if you think or respond to certain situations in a certain way, fall into vicious cycles of thinking, or think negatively when the situation doesn’t require it.
CBT focuses on ways of changing negative thoughts and alternative ways of thinking and solve problems better, all of which will make you feel better. CBT often also involves challenging some thoughts by exploring and questioning how they fit with your experience, and whether there are different ways of thinking that can be more helpful.
The number of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy sessions you require will depend on the complexity of your presenting issues and your goals. Your therapist will discuss your goals with you at the initial face to face or online consultation and you can discuss how many sessions may be required.

CBT at Newcastle Psychologist and Counselling
At Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling, Dr Stuart Sadler and his team of therapists will help you work on your thoughts and behaviours to help improve how you feel.
You will often meet with your CBT therapist for a number of weekly sessions (depending on your goals), each lasting approximately 50 minutes. Each session will look at your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and any problems that might have happened during the week and help you to cope in a different or better way.
One of the benefits of CBT with Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling is that you can continue to use the skills in future situations to prevent escalating spirals of negative thinking.
