Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
CBT is offered to staff following a referral to Occupational Health. These one-to-one sessions focus on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts.
