Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help you to change how you think ('Cognitive') and what you do ('Behaviour'). These changes can help you to feel better and unlike some of the other talking treatments, it focuses on the 'here and now' problems and difficulties. Instead of focusing on the causes of your distress or symptoms in the past, it looks for ways to improve your state of mind now.

We are very fortunate indeed to have Nigel Ohslon, who is a qualified counsellor/psychotherapist and works with some of our pupils weekly using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Through Nigel’s CBT sessions with pupils, he intends to help them make sense of problems by breaking them down into smaller parts with the situation, thoughts, emotions, physical feelings and actions. This makes it easier to see how they are connected and how they affect them which in turns helps pupils to manage their problems by changing the way you think and behave.

We have attached a more detailed guide for CBT as linked below.
