Cognitive Behavioural Therapy was developed by Aaron T. Beck in the early 1960’s.

In a relatively very short time it has become one of the leading psychological therapies in most Western countries, both in psychological practice and medicine. Its attractiveness and success are due to the close ties between knowledge and practices that characterise its high efficacy in the treatment of many disorders (including depression and anxiety) demonstrated in numerous scientific studies.

What is Cognitive - Behavioural Therapy?


Is Cognitive - Behavioural Therapy appropriate for me?


From our experience we can say that the Cognitive – Behavioural Therapy is extremely effective for most patients and treats a diverse range of psychological disorders.

Cognitive - Behavioural Therapy allows the introduction of significant changes in the life and psyche of each individual person. In turn, these changes give us a sense of control over our own lives.

Currently in England Cognitive - Behavioural Therapy is very popular and because of its effectiveness the National Health Service (NHS) and many private organizations invest in it.

Do I need therapy?


If you‘re looking at this website, we can assume that you are not happy because of something troubling you and disrupting your quality of life. If you can think of ways out of this situation and areas of your life that you would like to change, but you're not sure how to go about it, this therapy will be helpful for you.

We all experience problems in life but we do not have to feel powerless and at the mercy of fate. We can solve them.

Therapy sessions are normally held once a week and may also be agreed upon every two weeks.

At the first treatment session the number of therapeutic sessions required may be agreed upon. All information discussed in therapy is confidential.

If I had different therapy before can you help me?

The dominant part of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is to teach the patient how to control their mood and become their own therapist, which helps to avoid the potential need to return to therapy in the future.Therapy sessions are normally held once a week and may also be agreed upon every two weeks.

What if my problem recures in the future?


A part of Cognitive - Behavioural Therapy is relapse prevention by practicing techniques that will prevent recurrences of depression and neurosis. In addition, we can agree on a future summarizing session to check and support your progress.
