Psychotherapy with Vickie Edwards

Personal Statement

I have  over 22 years experience of working within the NHS, and this has enabled me to have a greater understanding of the challenges in life, and what helpful techniques/strategies can help to best manage these. 
I am passionate about my work and the long term benefits that can be gained by having a safe space to discuss what is presenting, and exploring ways of moving forward.

What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT, is a family of talking therapies, all based on the idea that thoughts, feelings, what we do, and how our bodies feel, are all connected. If we change one of these we can alter all the others.
When we’re low or upset, we often fall into patterns of thinking and responding which can worsen how we feel. CBT works to help us notice and change problematic thinking styles or behaviour patterns so we can feel better. 
CBT is a collaborative therapy - it’s not something that is done to someone, it’s a way of working together with a CBT therapist on mutually agreed goals (BABCP,2024)

Cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) is a type of therapy that marries together ideas from analytic psychology with those from cognitive therapy. Looking at past events and experiences, the therapy aims to understand why a person feels, thinks and behaves the way they do, before helping them problem solve and develop new ways of coping.
Each programme of therapy is tailored to the individual's needs, taking into account their current situation and the problems they're dealing with. Cognitive analytic therapy can last between 16, and 24 sessions, depending on the nature of the problem being explored.

What is CAT?

As its name suggests, cognitive analytic therapy has two elements - the analytic side and the cognitive side. The analytic side of the therapy involves the exploration of previous events and experiences that could link to the current issues being faced. I will aim to help you understand why events from the past could be affecting you now, and together we will map out patterns and procedures and explore more helpful ways of changing these.
The foundations of cognitive analytic therapy rely on an empathetic relationship between the client and the therapist.
