Help & Advice

I know I need help, but where do I start ?

You can access a free consultation to discuss your issues and difficulties. Cherrise will answer any questions you may have at that time. There is no obligation to enter therapy; this is purely to help you decide if CBT is the right thing to help you to move forward.

What happens in the assessment ?

The assessment session will allow us to develop a shared understanding of the issues affecting you and your life. This usually focuses on identifying how your thoughts, ideas, feelings, attitudes and behaviours affect your day-to-day life. Together we can then decide on a therapy plan, with goals to work towards; also the number of sessions we expect you will require to fully address your issues.

What’s therapy like ?

Each session lasts approximately 60 minutes. Typically, a session of therapy is once weekly to begin with. A course of CBT can be longer or shorter depending on the nature & complexity of the condition. Some difficulties can be treated over 6- 10 sessions, other more in-depth issues may take longer.
You will be encouraged to take an active part in therapy & will usually be given ‘homework’ between sessions. If you have social anxiety, for example, you may be asked to keep a diary of your thoughts and activities which occur when you become anxious before, or during, a relevant event or episode.

What should I do next ?

The path to you feeling better can begin with a simple phone call. Contact Cherrise King at your convenience, for a no obligation chat.
