What we do and why we do it.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is one of the most widely used and successful
therapeutic interventions. A fairly prescriptive intervention, it is perfect to be used in
schools and is recommended by DfE and NHS
In any therapeutic intervention, the relationship between therapist and client is one of
the most, if not the most, crucial elements. By training and empowering school staff to
use CBT we are improving the chances of any intervention being successful.
CBT is a talking therapy where the therapist works with the client to
change thoughts and effect change. There is no psychoanalysis involved, or any deep
delving into the psyche.
