Acclaimed Psychologist Helps Ease Mental Distress with Bespoke CBT Services
An internationally acclaimed psychologist is helping Brits overcome mental health hurdles with bespoke cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) services curated to meet the needs of every individual. By taking a unique approach to each client Wendy Dignan creates custom CBT treatment programmes designed to facilitate long-term results.
Unlike other therapists who base their treatment plans on a ‘one size fits all’ approach, Dignan has an intrinsic appreciation for the fact that every mind is different. From the moment an individual is born they begin to endure a continuous flow of experiences, emotions and learned behaviours. Every single one of these is unique which means that by definition, no CBT treatment plan should mimic another.
“Every individual is different and when it comes to the therapy sphere, recognising individualities is inherently important. I am an avid believer in the concept of creating customised treatment plans that match the unique needs, experiences and goals of every individual client,” says Dignan.
Encompassing both cognitive and behavioural techniques, CBT is used to pinpoint the origins of mental health issues. The concept is based on the fact that issues both originate and endure from a combination of both factors. From a cognitive perspective CBT aims to uncover the irrational thinking patterns that go hand in hand with psychological distress. As feelings are a direct extension of thoughts the idea is to train the mind to facilitate a happier existence.
Behavioural training accompanies cognitive elements, with Dignan actively coaching her clients to ‘unlearn’ maladaptive behaviours. These include assertiveness, relaxation and gradual desensitisation to feared objects, situations or environments. When combined cognitive and behavioural strategies can be used to holistically treat a myriad of mental health problems including phobias, repetitive habits, anxiety and depression.
“CBT is an incredibly effective therapy technique however a ‘one size fits all’ approach simply doesn’t cut it. During sessions we delve deep into the original factors that triggered mental health issues and as a long-term professional I can testify that no two cases are ever the same,” says Dignan.
All sessions are underpinned by the development of genuine therapeutic alliance. Relationships are built on honesty, openness and a genuine concern for the client. Within this framework Dignan is able to gain deep insight into the unique thoughts and behaviours of individuals. This is then used to develop bespoke CBT treatment plans that foster lasting positive change.
Wendy Dignan operates from two central London practices located in Wilmslow, Cheshire and Harley Street, London. As well as face to face sessions clients can also opt for telephone consultations and email therapy.
