CBT for your Teen
There has never been a more important time to nurture mental health and wellbeing than in the teenage years, and the most effective, and proven way to work with teenage mental health is in the use of CBT.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is explained here if you need more information on what CBT is and how it works.
99% of adults being treated today at The Talking Rooms, report an untreated mental health issue in the teenage years, which continued into their adult life, impinging their quality of life and promoting unhealthy behaviours such as drinking and substance misuse. The good news is that CBT at The Talking Rooms, delivered one to one by a highly qualified and experienced Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist is highly effective.
We find the most common areas we deal in are anger, low mood, low self-esteem, anxiety both socially and generally, self-harming and suicidal thoughts. We’re also really experienced in working with teens directly, so we can speak their language.
CBT for teens is highly effective for all manner of issues and disorders, and if you have any concerns at all, please contact our friendly and experienced team, who will advise you on the best way forward.
How it works?
We arrange an initial telephone assessment with the primary caregiver and your teen. This generally takes around 90 minutes.
Following your assessment, a recommendation based on NICE Guidelines, will be made which will give you a guide as to how many sessions will be required.
Once this is agreed upon a treatment plan is created, and you will be matched with the right therapist and a suitable appointment scheduled. Each appointment will take place weekly for around 50 minutes, generally on the same day and time.
How much does it cost?
It is £50 to be seen at the East Kilbride office, as a face to face appointment, or £40 per session for an online session.
Block bookings are recommended for a minimum of 6 sessions to secure the day and time most suitable for you to attend.
I was pretty terrified when my Mum took me to my first session, I didn’t know what to expect, but the therapist I worked with was really nice and kind and really understanding. I didn’t feel judged, and I found the tools I learned really helpful. I think everyone should have a therapist.
