How do CBT sessions work?
A CBT course consists of a series of one-to-one sessions, where an individual meets the counsellor several times over a period of time. It’s generally recommended that you have weekly sessions over several months.
What happens during your first CBT session?
You are the priority. The first session is tailored to ensure that this is the right kind of therapy for you and that you’re comfortable with the aspects of the sessions. You’ll discuss your life and what you feel is holding you back.
Your CBT therapist will also ask about any treatment you’ve already had and what goals you have in mind. Then, you’ll be recommended a course of treatment.
