Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in London

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help you make sense of problems and build a tool kit of strategies so you can feel empowered and capable when dealing with life’s challenges.

What is CBT?

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy in which your therapist shows you how negative interactions between feelings, thoughts and behaviours fuel your problems. Your CBT therapist will work alongside you to help you learn alternative thinking patterns and behaviours which can help you improve the way you feel. CBT therapy focuses mostly on how you think and behave now, rather than on past issues. We provide CBT at several convenient locations across the city including Central London near Oxford Circus, and London City near Bank & Liverpool Street. We also offer CBT online.

What Problems Can a CBT Therapist Help?

Cognitive behavioural therapy has been shown to be effective in dealing with a wide range of mental health issues including:

Overcoming Stress
When I came to see Jo I was feeling very low. I found it hard “to see the wood for the trees” as I had been feeling stressed for so long. I found Jo very understanding and she quickly helped me to clearly identify the matters which were affecting me most. She really helped me to understand why I was feeling the way I was and what I needed to do to change the things which were… Read More

Making Sense Out of Confusion
…there are certain complex areas of everyone’s life that do merit/require examination and that this process is best carried out with the help of an expert ‘facilitator’. Having talked to Vybra Morris on and off for almost five years now I can objectively state that Vybra is perfect for this role because she is reliable, trustworthy, intuitive and perceptive.

Inner Self Struggles

This was my first experience with counselling. At my age and being a bloke I definitely had to overcome a reluctance to seek help and embarrassment at revealing my struggles and inner self. I won’t say it was easy but my counsellor really helped me overcome this so we could make progress on the issues. Recommended.

Gain Clarity in Turbulent Relationships
I am 61 and in 2021 I was going through a turbulent time with my marriage as we were both thinking we might be better off going our separate ways. I found that having a regular appointment to talk was like a lifeline at times…knowing I just had to get through to the next appointment. Talking with Dhanesh not only helped me clarify what was going on in my mind but also forced me to consider a…. Read More

Self-Confidence, Self-Esteem and Support

My experience of having therapy with Mita was positive and eye-opening. She is extremely professional, empathetic and a good listener. Therapy is hard but I found Mita to be very supportive; I was especially grateful when I was able to speak with her at one point in between sessions when I was having a bit of a crisis. I only stopped going due to the cost and would recommend Mita as a therapist.

Learn How to Manage Anxiety Quickly
My experience with Jacqui was excellent – over just 6 sessions we got to the core of my issues and worked through them.I have always deemed myself an anxious person and so I assumed it was normal that as a consequence I was a bad sleeper, a chronic worrier and had negative thoughts about myself. Jacqui quickly helped me realise that this wasn’t the case and I didn’t have to continue down this path if I didn’t want to… Read More

Matching With The Ideal Therapist

Paul was amazing. I am so unbelievably grateful for the work he’s done with me. I’ve gone through a lot of therapists and I have a hard time trusting them (or their opinions). I am not an easy client to have, but Paul is a model of intelligence, kindness, understanding, and patience. He was an integral part of getting me through one of the most difficult periods of my life. He is very good at identifying what’s at the root of issues and he knows how to guide you without beating you over the head. He is also very professional. I, truly, cannot recommend him enough.

Improvement to Self Confidence

Had a very positive experience working with Kate and KlearMinds. Kate was very easy to talk to and gave me space to do sessions in the way that worked best for me and I came out of them feeling refreshed and motivated. I would definitely recommend Kate to anyone looking to work through things in therapy, she was kind, thoughtful and always reliable even when I was a bit awkward about finding times that suited my schedule.

Improve Your Self-Confidence
When I came to KlearMinds I had started a new relationship and it became apparent to me that I hadn’t fully healed from a past, emotionally abusive relationship. I hadn’t realised how much I needed to speak with someone until I started working with Samina. She helped me realise my anxieties, where these stemmed from, my triggers and that I wasn’t broken… therapy was invaluable in helping me come up with… Read More
Attentive and Quick to Respond

I highly recommend KlearMinds. It was a very convenient location and my therapist(Tania) was extremely kind, attentive and quick to respond to any of my problems. I would definitely go back to this practice if I ever require any more counselling.

I honestly can’t thank Madalina enough. I really didn’t think therapy was for me but it’s been the best thing I’ve ever done. I was apprehensive before I went but Madalina has helped me through a great deal. It’s a journey that’s not yet over but one we are working on together. I feel like I’ve had a massive weight lifted off my shoulders and I’ve been able to learn so much about myself and the way I think…. Read More
