Hi, Im not Donna, but...

> Donna, I meant to ask you - did you get cbt on the nhs? I would love to give it a go but dunno if I can get it - I was offered 6 councelling sessions on the nhs, and thats it. And its like, what can you accomplish with just six sessions? By the time the concellor has got their head round my family and all my childhood issues, it'd be over!

I got CBT on the NHS and found it to be of decent quality and worthwhile utility. I got quite a few sessions, 12 I think, with a lady who had just started specializing in CBT for psychosis which is my primary problem. We stopped as she had to move to continue her research work. Took me forever to get an NHS therapist though; from the horses (psychiatrists) mouth "we have available CBT slots but none of our therapists are willing to take you on as a patient." - gee thanks. In a way Im glad I had to wait since I really got the right therapist in the end.
I have also been on an NHS group anxiety management course which included some CBT like elements, I found it to be of poor quality and minimal use. We never had a a final session where we evaluated the quality of the course but I reckon most of the other people probably didnt get very much from it either.
