About Us

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

Cognitive Behavioural therapy is a practical, action oriented, style of psychotherapy. It has proven to be very effective in the treatment of a range emotional problems such as, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, obsessive-compulsive disorder and addiction. Compared to other forms of psychotherapy, CBT it is a short-term process typically lasting no longer than 8 sessions. This therapeutic model was created on the premise that unhealthy thinking styles and assumptions lead to the manifestation of a skewed distortion of reality giving rise to emotional pain within in the individual.

How does Cognitive Behavioural Therapy work?

CBT teaches people the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviours and the impact they have on one's emotional state. It is a collaborative process whereby therapist and client break down the problem into manageable chunks while working toward the goal of creating a healthier thinking style which in-turn leads to a more life satisfaction.


Sessions & Our Clients

The CBT Process

The process is exploratory and practical. We will work towards identifying unhealthy thinking patterns while simultaneously implementing CBT strategies to modify them. Between sessions clients engage in the empowering process of completing homework assignments, helping disprove negative beliefs.

CBT Sessions

Each client is invited to keep a log or a diary, which has proven to greatly assist in becoming astute at recognising limiting beliefs and challenging them. A Cognitive Behavioural Therapy session lasts between 50 and 60 minutes.The fee per individual session is €80.

Reality is not so much about what happens to us, rather, it is how we think about those events that create the reality we experience. In a very real sense, this means we each create the reality in which we live
