Home Client case studies We hope these client case studies will provide an insight into therapy and how it works. Although they have been written by us, they are based on real work with clients, although we have mixed things up a little and changed names so nobody can be identified. How CBT helped Helen — a client case study I had always been a slightly anxious child but this anxiety had intensified with age.
When it got to the point where I was so worried about what people thought of me I was afraid to leave the house, I realised I needed to do something about it. I had an initial session with Alison, a cognitive-behaviour therapist CBT therapistin which we discussed what cognitive-behaviour therapy CBT would entail.
From understanding the premise of cognitive behaviour therapy CBTI was better able to understand my way of thinking which was creating and maintaining my problems.
Alison taught me some helpful relaxation techniques to make me feel less anxious and ways to modify my negative patterns of thinking. It was difficult at first and took a bit of effort on my part but I soon understood why I felt the way I did and was able to use these techniques alone which made me feel better about myself.
Although coming to cognitive-behavour therapy CBT was initially quite daunting, I found it a positive and helpful experience. Alison gave me the opportunity to talk about my problems in a friendly and understanding environment, which I had never done before, and never made me feel rushed.
Once I started to notice myself accomplishing the goals we had set, I became much more comfortable in therapy and it just got easier and easier. It was at this point that I realised I needed someone to talk to about my problems.
I organised an initial session with Andrew, who was a counselling psychologist. At first, it was difficult to open up to a complete stranger about how I felt but Andrew listened in a non-judgemental way, which soon put me at ease.
It was, in fact, a relief to talk to someone not directly involved in my relationships. Andrew drew attention to things I mentioned which gave me food for thought and pointed out the way previous experiences could impact on my life now. As the sessions progressed, it became easier to talk about my past and we also focused on the unhelpful ways I tried to cope such as withdrawing from people and overeating.
By talking things through, I came to understand the reasons why I behaved and felt the way I did which helped me to change.
I realised my feelings of rejection from school had been transferred into adulthood. As a result, my self-esteem is a lot healthier as I try not to withdraw from people or comfort eat to make myself feel better when conflict arises.
I still have the odd bad day but I feel a lot better about myself and a lot more confident in my ability to be better able to manage my relationships in the future.
It was horrible and we both just wanted to find a way of stopping what seemed to be these never ending arguments — often about nothing at all. She also gave each of us time and space in turn to talk about how we felt without interruption. This was really important for us as in doing so it became really clear neither of us realised how much the other was struggling.
We also continued to work on what was happening between us. Over time things improved as we learned to communicate more openly and to de-escalate conflict situations i. I am pleased to say we are still together two years on — something that seemed impossible to envisage at the time.
