Our mental health practice provides specialist Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT).
CBT is a therapeutic intervention for people who have difficulties with their emotional health. The CBT model focuses on the role of thinking and behaviour in our emotional health. It represents the best evidence-based psychotherapy in the field of affective disorders (Bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders etc). The aim of the therapy is to alleviate depressive, hypomanic and anxiety episodes and to prevent new episodes/crises from ever recurring.
Dr Yanni Malliaris has worked and trained with the father of CBT for Bipolar disorder (Professor Dominic Lam) at the University of London, and has trained in Behavior therapy with Professor Ivar Lovaas at UCLA. Other important and notable Professors that has worked and trained with in the field of CBT therapy include Professor Chris Brewin (Depression, PTSD) and Professor Kevin Power (Anxiety disorders). Currently, Dr Malliaris develops his own CBT therapy interventions for Bipolar disorder and depression.
Our CBT programme adapts to the individual needs of each patient. For those who know some of the CBT models we frequently use include Lam’s and Beck CBT models (for Bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety disorders), Miklowitz’s Family Focused Therapy model (for Bipolar disorder), Watkin’s Rumination-Focused CBT model (for depression), Martell’s Behavioral Activation model (for depression), Linehan’s Dialectical Behaviour Model (DBT, for personality disorders).
