Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has a strong evidence base and is recommended as a first-line treatment by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence ( for depression and a range of anxiety disorders. CBT is a collaborative and present-focused therapy - exploring the relationship between your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. The key idea behind CBT is that we can get 'stuck' in negative thought processes and patterns of unhelpful behaviour which have a detrimental impact on how we feel. In therapy, we will gently explore how these thought processes and behaviours are impacting your life and consider what the alternatives might be - offering you a way to break the cycle of anxiety and depression, achieve your goals and live a more meaningful life. 


CBT - What is involved?


Phone Consultation

I can offer a free 10 minute phone consultation to discuss your current situation and explore your suitability for therapy. You can ask any questions that you might have before committing to booking any further sessions. This is a good opportunity for individuals to get a sense of the therapist's style and see how comfortable they would feel working with them. 


Assessment Session

The first session is what we call an 'assessment session' - to help us get a detailed understanding of what it is you are struggling with and how it is impacting your life. This session will last for up to 90 minutes and will also involve exploring any relevant experiences from earlier in your life. At the end of this session, we will discuss what your goals are and I will explain what therapy is likely to involve in order to support you to move forward in line with these. 


Treatment Session

Subsequent treatment sessions will last for up to 50 minutes and repeat on a regular basis - on a day and time that suits you. A good 'dose' of CBT will usually consist of 10-20 sessions although there is no obligation to commit to a minimum number of sessions. We will start by completing a psychological formulation (shared understanding of your difficulties) and then explore how to start breaking free from your cycles of anxiety and depression.

‘I loved working with Sam. His insight and thoughtfulness helped me to understand what felt like complex problems and work with them in the framework of CBT. I found it really helped and I’m so glad we got to work together’
'I've made massive progress, which I honestly didn't think I would. I've tried CBT before and it's never helped, but these sessions have completely reframed how I view my anxiety and panic. I've learnt a lot, which I feel has equipped me really well for dealing with my anxiety going forward'
'Sam teamed such empathy, listening and understanding with practical steps at each session to build upon and implement that made a huge fundamental impact to my situation. Thank you Sam for your help, it has changed everything for me'
