 -

PRIVATE COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY CLINIC IN WEST YORKSHIRE

 

Synergy. “A combined or coordinated interaction producing a joint effect that is greater than the sum of their separate parts”.
 

Synergy captures the central tenet of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is collaboration between the person seeking therapy and the psychotherapist delivering therapy. Together we work as a team; you bring your expertise by experience to the partnership and I bring my CBT and mental health skills, knowledge and experience. Together we will work to achieve the goals you define.
