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.

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 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.

In my life I had a lot of issues that I considered resolved, because a lot of time has passed. I originally started to go to therapy, because I had questions about certain behaviours that I did. With the help of an amazing therapist Tania Turner I manage to find answers, but also more questions which helps me understand myself more. I also understood that even though time helps heal the pain it doesn’t necessarily make the traumatic experiences go away. I believe therapy is an excellent way to revisit and learn how to navigate through those experiences.

I am a 66 year old Irish woman. I say Irish as we are known to carry a lot of guilt and baggage and keep keep our emotions inside. My whole life I’ve spent worrying about everything and anything and my biggest fault was never being able to say no to anybody. My son in law said to me last year “if you’re always doing the same thing and getting the same results, why not do something different”. So I decided to make a change. My daughter researched therapists and found Klear Minds to be the best. She looked at a number of clinics and therapists and the reviews at Klear Minds speak for themselves. I have to say I was filled with anxiety over which therapist I would choose or be allocated to. However that anxiety was completely dispelled the first day I met Judy. I knew immediately she was the right person for me. She even managed to diagnose what I was suffering from in the second session. It was one of those light bulb moments when you get the name of what you suffer from and realise how life changing it could be to develop tools to change particular habits. From then on it was truly enlightening and I began to look forward to our weekly sessions. Therapy is not easy and you really only get out what you put in. But for me it has helped me create boundaries and to say NO. If you are worried about your relationship with the therapist assigned to you I’d say give it a try. I’m pretty sure all the therapists are hand picked and are excellent, but speaking from experience I absolutely love Judy and she has been a godsend into my life. Nothing ventured, nothing gained is my motto now. I’m incredibly grateful to Judy for her extensive knowledge and caring attitude. My life in a short time has been transformed. In some ways I wish I’d entered therapy earlier and maybe not made half the mistakes I’ve made, but I’m also aware these mistakes make me the person I am today. I cannot recommend Klear Minds enough. Of course I’m a little biased now and would highly recommend Judy Harrison, but she is superb in every way. She is extremely calm, kind and easy to talk to. She prepares for each session, so they are structured and so that the clients get the most out of every session. I cannot rave about her enough and feel silly now at the idea of ever having trepidation about therapy.

I initially booked one session with Amanda to try to deal with an ongoing period of grief and related ‘stuckness’ I was facing after the death of my mother. I made up lots of good reasons why I didn’t need to talk to anyone about the way I felt but after a long time and things getting worse, I made an appointment. I had a short run of weekly sessions and it has had a profound impact on my life. The sessions have helped me to better understand my emotions and given me tools to deal with how I feel in a much more constructive way. I am now getting back on track and life is a whole lot better. Looking back, the sessions were no doubt my turning point. I should also add that Amanda is a totally lovely person and I found her very inspiring.
