Turning words into action for young people

We aim to show through our actions that all young people are valued and valuable

Above n Beyond therapies is a service for young people where Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is offered to assist young people in managing their problems by changing the way they think and behave.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is based on the concept that thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected and that negative thoughts and feelings can be responsible for an unhealthy vicious cycle of thoughts and behaviour. CBT can break this vicious cycle by breaking down overwhelming problems and changing negative patterns.

It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression and can be used to treat other problems such as obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, and Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and  self- harming.

Last year I was really struggling and finding it difficult to concentrate and prepare for my GCSE’s. I felt anxious that I was going to fail all of my exams and couldn’t cope. I didn’t know where to turn or what to do. Thankfully I was introduced to Becky who helped me to deal with this anxiety and succesfully pass all my exams. CBT really does work for anyone feeling like I did I would highly recommend Becky.
