Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy and a form of psychotherapy. Gill is a qualified counsellor and CBT practitioner and she believes that the use of these techniques can be instrumental in helping empower people back to health and well-being. She works with each person to identify and understand problems in terms of the relationship between their thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
Gill has worked with people with different types of challenges such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, anger and many types of phobias ranging from agoraphobia to OCD.
When things go seriously wrong in one’s life the person needs to get a clear view of what has happened and that they do have the power to change things. Using CBT, Gill would help to put the situation into a realistic perspective without taking away the seriousness of it.
Gill is convinced that in many instances emotions and behaviour are determined by thinking and that emotional disorders result from negative and unrealistic thinking. By learning to alter these patterns, emotional disturbance can be reduced or eliminated.
CBT is based on the idea that our interpretation of an event is crucial; people incorrectly assume that other people or unfortunate circumstances are directly responsible for the unpleasant way they feel.
Gill integrates many of the CBT techniques into her daily working practices, while staying faithful to her central philosophy of treating the person as a whole rather than trying to treat the symptoms of an illness.
