Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT in Wolverhampton, West Midlands

Lewis Psychology CIC is a multi-award winning ethical business and the only cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) service in Wolverhampton to gain Service Accreditation status with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). BACP Service Accreditation demands the highest standards of practice in the counselling and psychotherapy profession and is considered by many to be the highest honour in the field.

The BACP Service Accreditation helps the public and practitioners identify services providing a high standard of counselling and psychotherapy. It sets the standard to which all counselling and psychotherapy services can aspire to and demonstrates a commitment to excellence.

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that helps clients overcome their difficulties by changing their thinking, behaviour and emotional responses. CBT has been scientifically tested and found to be effective in hundreds of clinical trials for many different issues.

Our emphasis is on finding solutions that work for you, so that every client can become their own therapist by applying new skills and techniques to old patterns of thinking and behaving.

We will also look at how problems are maintained. This could be because of:

  • Unhelpful behaviours (e.g. avoidance or alcohol use);
  • Thinking distortions (like catastrophising or always looking at the worst part of an experience).
  • Negative emotional states (like hopelessness, shame or guilt).
  • Physical symptoms (such as lack of energy or palpitations).
  • Life events (such as consequences from assaults or redundancy).

Clients take an active part in therapy and this is what we think makes it so effective. You will plan with your therapist some "therapy tasks" or "homework" between sessions. This could be completing a thought diary or completing an experiment to test rules and assumptions that we start to question or suspect are maintaining your problem.

This process gets you actively involved in your own treatment so that you can become your own therapist by applying new skills and techniques to old patterns of thinking and behaving.
