Cognitive Behavioural Therapy / Training / Coaching in Dunkeld

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy / Training, or CBT / CBC as it is usually known, is a special form of Psychological therapy. Like Life Coaching, personal development training or NLP, it is often provided in a training format. Therefore some practitioners may consider themselves "clinical counsellors" who provide CBT, others may prefer to consider themselves "trainers" who empower their clients while still working through deeper issues.

Mental health treatment is based around methods recommended in NICE guidelines, and those fully researched as effective such as CBASP. More information on both adherence to NICE guidelines and on underpinning research please visit our other site www.psychoanalysis.center

We adhere to appropriate National Occupational Standards, carry professional insurance and support voluntary regulation of therapists. We are both subject to regulation in therapy. Both therapists area CNHC registered hypnotherapist (voluntary regulation of hypnotherapy).  Both therapists are registered on both CNHC and FHT PSA Accredited Registers. Professional Standards Authority Accredited Registers are for healthcare practitioners not subject to statutory regulation.

This web page is not meant to give an in depth or technical description, but instead a basic idea for the layperson considering CBT.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a very practical form of therapy. Like Life Coaching it aims to make discernible changes in a client's behaviour and lifestyle in order to help them.

CBT is widely recognised as a scientifically tested and verified psychotherapeutical method of overcoming common emotional problems. 

With CBT you identify errors in the way you may be thinking or perceiving things, and from there learning to adopt more helpful thoughts, attitudes, philosophies and beliefs.


In lay-mans terms this is our perception and identification of things around us. We may have faulty perception for a number of reasons. This may for example be due to obsession or trauma colouring the way we see things.


This is simply the way be act, behave and react to what we have already noticed going on around us. Again we can learn to act inappropriately for a number of reasons, often again because of trauma or obsession.


The process of understanding, relearning and retraining in order to change these errors from occurring and having a negative impact on us. Care is taken to have a non-judgmental attitude. The client is helped to challenge their own perceptions and behaviours. It is most certainly NOT about the therapist telling you how to act and think!

What to expect from Cognitive Behavioural therapy in Dunkeld?

You will be encouraged to examine, challenge and understand your perceptions and behaviours. Where appropriate you will be set exercises and challenges to help you change these for more positive thoughts and behaviours.

It is quite normal to expect "homework" from your therapist. Indeed Stuart uses his own award winning training pack with clients, formulated from real life practice over more than 12 years.
