Elena Touroni, a private psychologist based in Chelsea, outlines the approximate number of sessions of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) that are usually required to see an improvement in cases of depression. https://www.thechelseapsychologyclinic.com Chelsea Psychology Clinic are a group of London psychologists and psychiatrists offering private psychological therapy and psychiatry treatment from their premises across central London and Chelsea. The private therapy sessions cover the following areas: – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – Cognitive Analytic Therapy – Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Couples Therapy – Dialectical-behaviour Therapy – Mentalisation Based Treatment – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy – Schema Therapy
Usually, something between 12 to 16 sessions of CBT should be adequate for depression to improve. That really depends on the person. It depends on whether they are already on antidepressant medication and that it’s effective for them because that actually gives cognitive behavioural the best chance of being effective as well. It also depends on whether their depression is complicated by any underlying personality difficulties or whether their depression is an episode of depression that isn’t chronic and isn’t repetitive.
