What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Menopause Appointment (45minutes) (£150)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, is a well-established and evidence-based non-medical approach that empowers individuals to gain control over their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. It can be helpful for a number of conditions including anxiety and stress, hot flushes and night sweats, sleep problems and fatigue.

Managing Hot Flushes with Group Behavioural Therapy
The course follows the pioneering group treatment designed by Myra Hunter and Melanie Smith to help with menopause symptoms, reducing the frequency/intensity and distress caused by hot flushes and sweats. I completed training to deliver the programme via the British Menopause Society.
This course will apply CBT principles to specifically address the psychological aspects of menopausal hot flushes and sweats. By understanding and modifying thought patterns and behaviours, you can learn to better manage these symptoms and improve your overall quality of life.

What does a CBT Course Entail?
• CBT course group sessions – 4 sessions lasting 2 hours on 4 consecutive weeks.

Outline of Group sessions

Each session will introduce a new topic and will build on what has been learnt during the week and in the previous session. Daily diary records are important so that we can find out how the changes you make are helping you. There will be homework and you can make individual goals for each section of the treatment. Relaxation and paced breathing exercises are woven throughout the course.
