Back to events

Description
The CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) Skills Group is a seven week course which teaches individuals practical strategies for managing depression and anxiety. It is led by two Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners. Sessions last for two hours and are held weekly. There are usually 15-20 individuals in each group.

What happens on the group?
The CBT Skills group focuses on understanding the way our behaviours and thoughts affect how we feel. Through group discussions, exercises and take home activities, patients are encouraged to implement what they’ve learnt in their day-to-day life.

The group’s aim is to help people change the unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour that may be maintaining their depression or anxiety. In a supportive and safe environment, participants are able to share experiences of coping, learn from one another, and are encouraged to practice some of the techniques.

Who is it for and what problems does it address?
The group is suitable for people who suffer from mild to moderate depression and/or anxiety.

How to apply
Patients need to make a referral to our service and express their interest in the group during their telephone assessment.
