CBT and Counselling

CBT and Counselling

Have you noticed that sometimes what you think impacts how you feel and what you do? Of course. I imagine that it’s been like a battle. The unhelpful side often wins. Learning to think rationally in a sea of unhelpful thoughts and emotions is like trying to wrestle a shark. With councelling and CBT, wrestling the shark is easy and there’s a time tested method that will help you win, once you know what to do… wrestle the shark on dry land. In other words, with CBT and the right councelling support, you’ll become able to use the methods that you hadn’t thought of before and didn’t know were possible.

Training yourself to think differently, unlike the old “just think positive thoughts”, have been scientifically proven to give your rational self the edge over erratic emotions and habitual negative thinking.

CBT works. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy utilizes time tested tools that have been scientifically developed with an abundance of empirical research, giving you the power over the old unhelpful ways of thinking so that you take true control in a way that’s not only effective, it’s also empowering. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy helps you to see through the dense forest of your own mind. No more rumination! No more believing the nonsense! No more being controlled by negative thinking! This approach isn’t just effective; it’s incredibly empowering that you’ll own the tools to change yourself and those tools will never go away.

Other forms of councelling also exist like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and so much more. With a wealth of training and experience across countless practices, Online Therapies therapists and associates will have the skills and experience that you need. We can also connect you to therapists for sessions over zoom, skype or any other virtual therapy you wish.

Your experienced therapist will enable you to let go of what you need to let go from and pick up the tools and understanding you need. Speaking with a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist or Psychodynamic Therapist, you’ll be free from old emotional and psychological distortions and regain your inner mental health, free to live a life of abundance.

Not everyone who comes to see us for alcohol addiction wants to stop completely. Not everyone who needs to end a cocaine addiction or gambling addiction knows how to end the vicious cycle. However, one thing all our clients have in common is the recognition that the cycle of addiction needs to end otherwise their life and wellbeing will literally go down the drain.


Although the early days of a relationship can begin strong and even passionate, time and mistakes can impact the trust and closeness and that takes 3 components to heal: time, intention and expertise. Couples counselling will provide that help with fresh and welcomed perspective and support.


When anxiety strikes, we can often feel all alone. Surprisingly, 1 in 5 people suffer from anxiety so it’s no surprise that this is the most common area of mental illness and therapy for anxiety has become commonplace. No one method is perfect which is why the ideal situation for any person seeking help is to find a place that has enough flexibility to tailor an approach that most closely suits your circumstances.


What is self-esteem? Self-esteem is someone’s sense of personal worth or value. Confidence is someone’s sense in the own abilities. For many of us, early life experiences have left a damaging mark on how we feel and this creates a ripple effect that causes overcompensation and destructive behaviors, like people pleasing, shying away from opportunities or being overly sensitive.


Counselling for children and teens can often be a comfortable and collaborative process. Mostly, children are 7 years of age and above, and vary in how easy they find it to discuss what’s been troubling them. That’s where the flexibility and reliability of our professionals comes in. With plenty of experience behind them, Online Therapies’s Children’s Counsellors will know how to work with the different personalities that cross our paths.


Grieving is a learning process for how to live a life that has changed against our wishes. When a loved one passes away, or a partnership ends, we can be confronted to relearn how to be. With time we reinterpret and relearn about the world around us, sometimes positively and beneficially and sometimes not.


The symptoms of depression can appear very different for different people. Apathy, lethargy, sadness and guilt are often connected with depression. Many people with depression just try to push through their emotions while others feel like they’re collapsing under its weight.


Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is when a person experiences obsessive thoughts connected to fears of becoming contaminated, hurt, or hurting others. These obsessions steer people towards different compulsions aimed at relieving anxieties from the OCD.


People who struggle with anger can be stereotyped unfairly as uncaring or un-thoughtful when in reality, anger can often stem from a sense of injustice that matters a lot to the sufferer of anger. The difficulties arise when a person’s misinterpretation of events or lack of experience in handling unwanted feelings get the better of them.


Jealousy is one of the worst emotions that people can experience. A sense of impending loss of someone so close that losing them to someone else feels unbearable.Jealousy and insecurity can often go hand in hand with a combination of difficult thoughts and feelings that often lead either to shying away of being overly domineering in a relationship.


A fear of public speaking is the single most common fear in the world, and with businesses requiring presentations more frequently, and speaking to groups of people at work or socially becoming a normal part of life, how much more debilitating can a fear of public speaking be? Do not fear.

I’m just emailing to let you know how my dentist appointment went yesterday.

I’m just emailing to let you know how my dentist appointment went yesterday. So usually I would have been really nervous for the whole day, and then I would have worked myself up to a complete mess by the time I get there – making myself feel sick and faint. Yesterday however, I was not nervous at all in the day (which is unusual as I was off of work so I had nothing to keep my mind busy with). When I arrived at the dentist, I started to get a bit worried, but the staff were really friendly so talking to them took my mind off of it. When my appointment started, I asked to have the numbing gel and if I could listen to music as I wanted to try everything that I could to ensure that I got through it. And thankfully, I did it! I was sceptical beforehand as to whether it would work as i’ve never tried hypnosis before and I don’t know anyone else who has. However, I can definitely confirm that I felt a hell of a lot calmer than I did before, which meant that I managed to get the whole appointment done without feeling nauseous or faint – YAY! I’d like to say a massive thank you for all of your hard work, time and effort that you put into the sessions. Keep up the good work!


I found it really relaxing

I found it really relaxing. I started seeing the changes. Also people around me noticed. With Danny I get along well as a person. When you know someone and you get along well with them you can trust them and when you trust them you can let go of yourself and show them the real you. I think it’s all to his ability in what he does.


When I first met danny he seemed like a pretty

When I first met danny he seemed like a pretty likable sort of person. Danny’s quite a varied practitioner because he uses several different forms (techniques). It definitely helped me cut down on my drinking and my eating. You have to trust the person and the environment but yes, everybody should try it.


I had so much anxiety all the time about spiders

I had so much anxiety all the time about spiders. When I first came in I didn’t really know what to expect but Danny was really welcoming. I had 2 sessions with danny and I felt so relaxed after I’d left. I think Danny’s such a good therapist because he’s very friendly, very warm, he makes you very relaxed and he listens to you…and I think he genuinely cares as well.


I remember thinking Danny was so lovely

I remember thinking Danny was so lovely, he made me feel so relaxed. The process was a really good one a really positive one. And I came out and I threw my cigarettes in the bin and it wasn’t difficult…that’s the really lovely thing about it, it was really easy. He’s just very warm. He’s truly interested in helping people. From a psychologist’s point of view I could see he got right to the core of the issues. I found him easy to talk to, he got it right and I walked out thinking I want to give this man a hug.


In the last year when I haven’t been smoking

In the last year when I haven’t been smoking I haven’t even been thinking about smoking. I feel so much more relaxed now than when I smoked. Danny was really good at understanding what different excuses you use and what the fears are that stop you from stopping smoking. The way he got me to see how I was fooling myself; that helped a lot. A couple of my friends came for hypnotherapy after they saw how easy it was for me.


Dealing with it on your own is not easy and not everyone understands it

Dealing with it on your own is not easy and not everyone understands it. I have learnt through the therapy that I am stronger than I think. I like to call him my fairy godfather. He’s just lovely; he made everything so much easier. I couldn’t have asked for a better person really.


I was struggling with confidence

I was struggling with confidence. I came to see Danny and my next two appearances (exams) have been so much more confident in the chair and my delivery of an answer. If I’m truthfully honest I didn’t think that any of it would work… I have to say that when I left the first session I felt 10 feet tall. I do believe in myself a lot more. My wife even said that I’m a different person. It’s made me a better person. It was fantastic and I know it’s worked for me


Danny was very welcoming and he made me very really relaxed

Danny was very welcoming and he made me very really relaxed. I felt leaving the session that I’d started to sort the problem out. I left with more confidence that I would get back to at least somewhere where I had been. My advice to anyone who’s going through performance challenges or who’s had a knock in their confidence is to talk to Danny. The biggest take away for me has been to regain the self-belief.


I was dreading coming but Danny put me at ease

I was dreading coming but Danny put me at ease. It was calming and that’s when I realized perhaps this is something I should have done a long time ago. The first thing from the first session that we had that stuck with me wasn’t even a methodology or teachings of how to deal with things but just how attentively he listened and that’s the one thing that made me trust Danny enough to open up. After the final session it was just phenomenal. I’d laid my demons to rest and I’d had an opportunity to live my life how I wanted to and not be driven by something that wasn’t me.


I’d smoked for over 10 years

I’d smoked for over 10 years…and I could never imagine myself living any sort of life without smoking. After I left the room…I felt like a brand new person. I didn’t think about cigarettes; I didn’t crave them. I just felt brand new and really eager to start living my life without my smoking addiction.
