    What will happen during CBT and/or Counselling?

    Stephen uses a variety of psychological and counselling techniques to help clients take control of their own mental health.  These may include techniques such as activity enhancement, exposure and response prevention, behavioural experiment, imagery techniques, mindfulness, thought challenge, attention refocusing and compassionate self-talk.  Most importantly however is that whatever technique used involves working together at a pace that is comfortable to you.
