Headway Swindon aim to support each client in their day-to-day life with the use of cognitive behavioural therapy, if needed.
What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help clients manage the effects of their brain injury by the way they think and behave.
CBT is mainly covered during a weekly social group, where clients come together to chat and play games. Although CBT can’t cure the physical symptoms of a brain injury, it can help clients to cope better with their symptoms.
How will this help?
Cognitive behavioural therapy can help clients integrate back into society following their brain injury. The use of CBT will help clients understand how to deal with real life scenarios, such as techniques for managing anger and anxiety.
The use of CBT will allow individuals to increase their self-esteem and confidence. The weekly social group provides a positive support network for clients that need help through CBT.
