CBT-therapy is also available in English.

WHAT IS CBT?

In Cognitive Behavioural Therapy we focus on ”here and now”. Life as it is right now! Allthough it is important to recognize possible traumas, or causes in the past that contribute to present problems, the focus is now. That is, how can we improve your functioning in order to handle the difficulties that you may face today. The treatment is a collaboration between the client and therapist.

”Homework” is used in CBT, which are adjusted to your type of problems, as a link to every-day life. To rehearse and try out new desired behaviour. In between sessions. CBT-therapists  work with evidence-based methods, which have been tested scientifically to be effective in improving life-quality, and changing behaviour.After working through thoughts and behaviours that are undesirable.

CBT  is a treatment that is limited in time, in contrast to for example psycho-analysis.Because CBT is an active, ”here and now” –method that focuses on the problem/behavior you can achieve your goals  rather quickly.

THE FIRST SESSION

We meet for the first time, about an our and a half.  Then we will get to know each other and what you wish to get help with. If we decide to go on with treatment, we will first meet two til three times, 50 minute sessions, to understand and priotitize your problem as well as your goal. After that we proceed with treatment for about 10-15 sessions, in general.

After finished  treatment we usually meet again once, after one or two moths  for a follow up.

We are health care professionals and are bound by professional secrecy.
