Welcome to the Adam May CBT Practice, where you can access Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy delivered face to face, by telephone, or by Skype. Our aim is to provide a personal, friendly, and business-like service.
Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a well-researched, evidence-based, effective therapy for depression, anxiety, and anxiety-related problems such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Phobias, Social Anxiety, Health Anxiety, and Panic Attacks. Psychological intervention can be helpful for just getting more from life, so we can also offer help with motivation, clarifying your life goals, as well as talking through relationship issues or workplace problems with you.
We treat individuals here, not cases. We think it is especially important to collaborate with you to develop an individualised problem conceptualisation and then an individualised treatment programme.
We should have developed a rudimentary problem formulation by the end of the first meeting, and be able to give you some indication of how many sessions you are likely to need.
Treatment is usually fairly short term. We try to provide the best possible treatment in the most efficient way, but it’s up to you how many sessions you come along for. We are more than happy to recommend self-help books, You Tube videos, and other Internet resources you can access to help you make progress rapidly.
The CBT approach lends itself to self help, so we have launched the new, Self Help Plus Service, where you have access to a therapist, but the support is with a light touch.
Our services are available to all age groups, including children and young people.
We also offer supervision to other CBT therapists, as well as counsellors and youth and community workers.
We accept referrals from GPs, healthcare agencies, solicitors, and insurance companies.
We provide workplace support for employers, including supporting staff returning to work, and training to managerial staff on managing this process. We provide short courses on CBT skills, and Solution-Focused, Brief Therapy skills for managerial staff and people working in youth and community work.
