Starting CBT next week - any words of wisdom?

Hi everyone,

I am starting CBT this Wednesday...I am really nervous about it. The actual appointment in itself is facing my fear head on, as my phobia is about becoming ill whilst out. I especially hate appointments because I feel trapped...so this appointment is in itself a big deal for me.

I'm also worried because I really want this to work, as I've tried so many other things that have not helped....I feel at my wits end. I'm so dertermined to make this work and i'll do what it takes.

But any words of wisdom and a bit of support would be much appreciated.
Thank you!
Ps, Would anyone find it helpful if I post my experiances of it here? Or are there enough posts on CBT already?

Hi Munchkin,

Did you go private in the end?

Hi kate,
Yes I had to, the waiting list for NHS in my area is two years...I'm hoping this man will be right, but if not i'm prepared to shop around, as it were!

How are you feeling? Did your appointment last week go ok? xx

Hi Munchkin

Good luck with this. It will be ok once you get there and start talking.

I suggest you take along a bottle of water and a notebook to takes notes on what he suggest you try.

Yes please do a diary here as we are always looking for real life experiences of CBT. I don't know whether you have read my diary on here or not but it does help to look back over it and others can see the sort of things I do whilst having CBT.

Wishing you the best of luck with it.

Nicola

Hi Munchkin !

I have an appointment with my cbt therapist on Wednesday too so I will be thinking of you!

Words of wisdom will come during your sessions, you will discover you have achieved things you thought were impossible and might not even recognise it until you get home.

Stay focused and listen this can work !


Good luck and we are right here so come and let us all know how it went


Sue

scknight

Hi new here,
my daughter has just seen a crap therapist to night via her gp, who said that she couldnt be helped-cant get CBT on the nhs, made her cry. Her Uni GP was good and said she would really benefit. She is fed up being the way she is.
Can you get it on NHS? If not how much is it? Are there places in South London - where she lives?
Help......
