This Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) course delivered by Occupational Health and Wellbeing Services is designed to help you gain a better understanding of your low mood/depression and focuses on improving your motivation. The course is a psychoeducational CBT group and is facilitated by a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and counsellor.
You will learn how to build a productive and varied routine that will create a sense of purpose and achievement in your life. You will be supported in tackling activities that you may have been avoiding – a common feature of low mood/depression. This course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to manage your mood and build a balanced and rewarding lifestyle. This will involve completing tasks in-between sessions each week to help you put into the practice the strategies introduced on the course.
