Episode 9 – Let’s Talk about CBT..

Today we talk about Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, more commonly known as CBT. In this episode we are so grateful to Gemma Douthwaite and Dr Charlotte Bolt who share their insights and demystify the inner workings of this treatment model. As always, we also have our service users, this week we have Lucy and Jay who also share their own knowledge from a service user perspective. We also get to hear a little about Ruby, our therapy dog – but that’s a story for next time! Just to say that in our conversation we discuss some of the options that we have used in our service. It may be the case that some of the options we have discussed may not be available in all areas, or indeed be appropriate in all treatment cases.

For more information on CBT, you can go to the NHS webpage here:

Listen in on their discussion about their different experiences, different needs and how they met them. Mia, Roshni, Sam and Ocean also share their thoughts on common myths and the realities of life at Uni for someone with a mental health issue.
