Face to Face CBT
What is Face to Face CBT?
During the first few sessions your difficulties are discussed and it will become clearer during this time whether CBT will be helpful for you. You and your therapist will create a treatment plan, outlining what treatment methods will be used and roughly how long treatment will last. Sessions usually take place at the same time and place weekly or fortnightly.
You will be asked to complete weekly questionnaires about your difficulties. These will help to monitor your progress, guide treatment and identify problem areas.
Every session, your therapist will write a session plan with you to ensure that everything that is important will be covered in a structured way.
Treatment will involve a regular review of any risks that have been identified with you. At the end of treatment you and your therapist create a plan to help keep you on track, help prevent relapse and a plan should you relapse.
