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:

How Does CBT Therapy Work?

  • Establish achievable goals that you want from your therapy

  • End your CBT therapy sessions when you feel you’ve achieved your goals

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Reviews

Gaining Clarity Out of Confusion
For a complete novice with some trepidation about the entire process, I entered not knowing what to expect. However Vybra provided a welcoming and engaging space, to slowly start to unravel my thoughts. Offering prompts when needed, a gentle push when necessary and advice when asked, I found it a thoroughly beneficial exercise and one I would definitely recommend. Read More

Coping Strategies to Get Through Difficult Times
I came across Mita and KlearMinds when I was going through a rough patch… Mita was phenomenal from the first meeting…and helped me with coping strategies to get me through such a difficult time. Looking back on it now I do not know how I would have got to where I am now without her support and would recommend KlearMinds and especially Mita to anyone… Read More

Help to Get Your Life Back on Track
If you’re reading my review, you are probably hesitant to seek therapy, or are sceptical in doing so, or want to find out if it really does work. I was exactly in the same position as you back in June 2019 and am glad I met Maddie who helped me understand myself and situations better. I never thought I would need to attend therapy as I thought I could get through my own problems myself. However…. Read More

Deal with Anxiety & OCD
I have struggled with OCD and anxiety since I was a child. Initially, I was quickly put on medication as a stopgap but never dealt with the root issues. KlearMinds was my first time trying proper therapy. I made immense progress with Mita… I learned many strategies and methods to deal with my anxiety, and gained much insight into myself and some underlying issues stemming from my past. I now have greater… Read More

Strategies to Manage Unhelpful Thoughts – Anxiety
My therapist Samina was a supportive and empathetic person. I was sceptical to the idea of counselling at first, however, with Samina’s professional and compassionate attitude, therapy became one of the best decisions I had made. Her expertise and knowledge was outstanding, as was her ability to fully understand my anxieties and needs. She developed a very suitable therapy for me, which involved facilitating my… Read More

Making Decisions & Building Self-Confidence
I contacted KlearMinds after a particularly frustrating period of self-doubt and indecision in my life. I had never visited a counsellor before, so I was very nervous about what to expect from the session, myself, and the person in this helping role. However, I felt an immediate rapport with Daniela, who allowed me to talk openly about my frustrations at a pace that felt comfortable to me. She was very skilled at… Read More

Improve Relationship Problems
I thought that Andrea was very good at getting us to the root of the issues that were causing my wife and I some difficulties…. I feel more positive about the future and confident in my relationship than I did six months ago. We argue less, and for shorter periods when we do. Andrea was practical, and came up with strategies for us… helping us to avoid our negative spirals into conflict… Andrea has done a nice job of… Read More

Overcoming Anxiety – Building Self Confidence
Feelings of extreme anxiety and a lack of confidence that had developed over a period of about 10 years brought me to see Daniella. Although to be honest, I wasn’t really sure how she’d be able to help. After 12 weeks, I feel like myself again. I’ve learnt to recognise my achievements and control my feelings of anxiety, which has helped me to regain my confidence and given me the motivation to try lots of new things… Read More

Free from Anxiety – Finally Able to be Myself
I have struggled with anxiety for my entire life and when I first met with Judy I thought she would help me manage it but I would never be able to overcome it. With Judy’s help I would no longer consider myself an anxious person… Therapy is much more than talking to someone… it has allowed me to finally be myself, without anxiety preventing me from doing things or making me act in ways that I am ashamed of….

Relationship Break-up – Regaining Self-Confidence
I decided to try therapy after my relationship ended. I wanted to understand why it failed (I blamed myself for it as I have thought that I was “broken”) and I wanted to understand what I was doing wrong and how to change it. I also wanted to be more open, to communicate better, to feel more confident and in control of my life and to be more optimistic about my future. Daniella helped me to look… my life differently; by asking… Read More
Coping Better with Studying Abroad
Amanda Reynolds is a wonderful and patient therapist who helped me during my time Studying Abroad. From someone who never believed therapy could be of significant help, I would like to say that after my sessions with Amanda that perception has completely changed… having someone that can provide an explanation and methods to overcome feelings one has never felt previously made a big difference….

Overcoming Depression – Building Self Confidence
I came to see Daniella when I was absolutely convinced that I was never going to feel happy again. I broke down in tears every day and felt overwhelmed by small setbacks. As clichéd as it sounds, at that time for me, there was no light at the end of the tunnel and I had sought help to try and find a way to reconcile myself with the fact I would be miserable for the rest of my life…she made me feel secure enough to face things… Read More
