Community support Further support services CBT Group Therapy CFINE is welcoming Jenny, a dedicated professional focused on mental health and wellbeing to our team. Having worked with her, we know she is able to provide emotional support to clients using integrated therapies. Jenny has developed counselling skills and is now completing their Diploma in Counselling and Groupwork. As part of her training, she is required to demonstrate her practice with both individuals and groups of clients. She is offering her services on a voluntary basis in the Aberdeen community through CFINE. She is seeking clients affected by stress or anxiety to take part in the group programme. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Jenny is focusing on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, an approach that suggests the way that we think and interpret situations has an impact on how we feel and behave. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on current difficulties with a view to changing the ‘here and now’ rather than looking to the past for causes of distress. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is usually between 6-12 sessions. You, as the client is expected to take a more active role in therapy by applying the new skills and techniques you learn to help make changes to your thoughts and behaviours. There is evidence to support the effects of CBT with a variety of problems such as depression, anxiety, phobias, stress, panic disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. However, this type of therapy may not suit everyone as there is a need for you to apply the techniques offered and undertake some work yourself. More about Jenny Over the years, Jenny has evidenced the change that counselling can support, balancing mental health particularly around stress, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and bereavement. Jenny has a background in Social Work and has most recently been working with SAMH as a Mental Health Coach. Her client-centred counselling means she will work closely with you to develop an appropriate action plan to support your needs.
