EBCP

Evidenced Based Counselling Practice for 11-18 year olds

We have a team of fully qualified EBCP therapists who work prodominetly in secondry schools and pupil referral units. EBCP has a specific focus on CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) for anxiety and Humanistic Counselling for mild to moderate depression.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy can be useful for those with anxiety as it helps a person deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. CBT is useful for those with general anxiety as well as specific phobias as it encourages the person to change negative patterns to improve the way they feel. CBT focuses on current problems, rather than focussing on issues from the past.

 Humanistic Counselling for depression provides a supportive environment with a focus on self-development and growth. It seeks to help individuals recognise their strength, creativity and choice in the ‘here and now’.

 The number of sessions offered will usually be between 6 -12 with each session lasting 50 minutes.
