Cognitive Behavioural Coaching

Cognitive Behavioural Coaching is a growing field. The principles underlying this approach are identical to those applied to clients in therapy, but in the case of coaching, they are used to facilitate learning, performance and development outside of the therapeutic arena.

Just as we develop unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour which give rise to and maintain depression and anxiety, we can also get into negative cycles which undermine our best efforts in other areas of our personal and working lives. Cognitive Behavioural Coaching (CBC) can help us to be more productive, more efficient, less stressed, more creative, and improve our working relationships.

Fees for Coaching

The cost of coaching depends on location (coaching can be arranged for individuals or groups in the workplace), individual circumstances and requirements, and whether or not the client is self-funding. Clients also have the option to book a block of sessions at a reduced rate. For further information, please call Melanie or submit an email request via this website.
