CULTURE NUDGE 

FOR INDIVIDUALS

Good mental health confers an awareness and sense of flexible control over our lives.  However, mental health is frequently fragile and can be readily disrupted by both internal and external forces. 


In order to restore balance and foster resilience, we all need to re-calibrate ourselves against objective reality.

One of the great insights offered by scientific psychology is how easily we can become illogical, short sighted, unkind and distressed.  This can easily manifest in conditions such as anxiety and depression. 

Hence, we are all susceptible to varying degrees of mental ill health. 

We deliver evidence-based psychological treatments, primarily cognitive behavioural therapy,

to ameliorate a wide range of psychological concerns.

We also deliver coaching, providing a pathway to boost self-esteem, personal fulfilment, and success.​

 

'If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment'

Marcus Aurelius

COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY

Our therapists will seek to engage you in a collaborative program to identify and resolve your presenting concerns.​  In the first session, your needs and goals are discussed in order to map out a program to achieve your desired outcomes. 


Naturally, your priorities may evolve during the sessions and it is of course completely fine to change direction as you wish.

You will be supported to acquire mastery over the application of constructive and transferable Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques.  These methods have been validated through large numbers of carefully conducted empirical studies.

Your Culture Nudge psychologist will encourage you to observe and to evaluate the validity of your thoughts and beliefs, and then gently nudge you to consider alternative perspectives.  This will help you to acquire a curious, scientific outlook on your life.

The methods and mind shifts developed during a successful course of CBT will stay with you long after your sessions come to a close.  In this way, you can consider a course of CBT as a sustainable investment in yourself, which you can continue to draw upon and develop independently. 

Human relationships are fundamental to happiness.  As you learn to evaluate the validity of your own thoughts and beliefs, you will become better able to dispassionately evaluate the thinking of others as well.  This can facilitate a more fair-minded and compassionate worldview, which should help you to remain grounded yet flexibly engaged in personal and professional relationships.

The outcome of the CBT process is to instil a sense of self-efficacy and resourcefulness which will equip you to move forward with a newfound adaptability and resilience. 


Over time, you will become progressively empowered to take charge of your own destiny.

Psychology is not just the study of weakness and damage,

it is also the study of strength and virtue.  Treatment is not just fixing what is broken,

it is nurturing what is best within ourselves.
