We run a number of different psychoeducational courses and treatment groups, all facilitated by our trained clinicians.
Each course or group is tailored to address a specific problem. It will support you to learn how to manage your difficulties using skills and techniques based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is an effective treatment for low mood and anxiety. You can learn more about CBT by clicking here.
Each course or group has 12-15 people taking part and all are currently run online via video link.
The sessions take place weekly. We run our courses or groups on different days and times so that you can attend one that is convenient for you.
To get the most from the treatment, it is important you can attend all the sessions as each session is designed to follow on from the one before. It is also important to find time to practice the strategies and techniques regularly in your everyday life. CBT is a “doing” not just a talking therapy! We know this is crucial in terms of being able to make good progress in overcoming difficulties.
The facilitators will ensure the space is a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental setting. Each session will be structured and led by the clinicians. Group rules will be set up at the beginning of the first session. There will be opportunities to feedback how you found applying the skills and to ask questions. You will not be asked to share anything that you do not wish to.
Benefits of attending:
- Research trials have shown that CBT is one of the most effective ways to help people to recover from depression and anxiety disorders such as social anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder and phobias.
- You will develop an understanding of your difficulties and learn skills and strategies to support you in managing them more effectively.
- They provide an opportunity to access support from others facing similar challenges, helping you to feel less alone with your difficulties.
We receive lots of positive feedback about the courses and groups from people who have attended them. You can hear more from people who have taken part previously by clicking here.
