Is CBT right for you?
CBT is a bit like learning a new language and we all know that learning requires time, commitment, and patience so it is important that that you have the right motivation and readiness for therapy. Yet, paradoxically, finding motivation is exactly what many of us struggle with and it can also be one of the main symptoms of depression. It is therefore particularly important to explore, at the beginning of therapy, whether this is the right time for you to engage with CBT so that you can make most out of the experience.
