The CBT'ers Club is Back! Membership for therapists, counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists, coaches, mental health practitioners of all modalities - not just CBT!

The CBT'ers Club is Back!
 
Wondering what has been happening and what will happen?

Well, we're 'breaking' the break from The CBT'ers Club. There were various reasons for the break (those of you who were previous members or on the mailing list will have got an extended email yesterday or this morning with details) and will be accepting Memberships in May again.

We'll be kicking things off with a FREE networking event in Glasgow city centre in May. Refreshments and snacks provided and a great opportunity to meet and chat with other therapists, counsellors, psychologists etc. and meet with those you haven't seen for a wee while too.

In June/July, we're also offering a FREE Therapist Support and Supervision Group (8 places available). 

Not only that, we're offering Members the following:

* Free Membership for 2020
* Free first 2 events of 2020
* Free membership to Glasgow and West Eating Disorders Networking Group
* Discounted room hire, supervision and more
* CPD meetings, events and workshops at a reasonable cost (other places charge a fortune, don't they?)
* Opportunities (e.g affiliate trainers, newrletter writer etc.)
* Regular news and update emails
* Jobs bulletin every month
* Discounts with other companies (TBC)

The CBT'ers Club was set up in 2013 and is a CPD, support, social, networking and professional membership group for anyone working in or interested in CBT.

We have had Members who are psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, mental health nurses, coaches, trainees, students, occupational therapists, researchers, and other clinicians who wish to connect, network, support each other and attend workshops, meetings and events.

Some of the things The CBT'ers Club offers are: social gatherings; therapist support and supervision groups; business clubs/private practice hub; workshops, talks and training; newsletters/updates; affiliate opportunities, topic and discussion meetings; networking events; discounted clinical supervision; discounted room hire; coffee and chat clubs; and the opportunity to network and connect with others who are in the psychotherapy, counselling and psychology field.

You don't need to be a CBT Therapist to join. Many members are from other modalities, so this is not a 'purist' CBT place. We value and respect other modalities and fields of specialism and expertise and feel that an integrative approach to psychotherapy, counselling and psychology is most beneficial.
If you are a former Member, were on our Mailing List or entirely new to The CBT'ers Club and want to take advantage of FREE Membership this year and subscribe in May, please email us on membership@cbtersclub.co.uk and we'll get in touch in March/April to set up your Membership in time for 'breaking' our little break.

The old website is still up, but it will be getting a makeover soon, but you can still have a wee nosey of it if you want: www.cbtersclub.co.uk

We're looking forward to seeing some familiar faces this year and some new ones too. If you need any more information, have any questions or wish to join as a Member in May or join the Mailing List instead, please get in touch, it would be lovely to hear from you.

Best wishes,

Alexandra
The CBT'ers Club

BODY IMAGE AND BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER: What is it?

BODY IMAGE AND BODY DYSMORPHIC DISORDER
As we said yesterday, this week in Mental Health Awareness Week 2019. This is a national awareness week and the theme this year is Body Image.
See Monday's post to see what we are doing this week. We will also be posting everyday this week on Facebook, Twitter and the blog about Body Image and BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder).
Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), or body dysmorphia, is a mental health condition related to Body Image where a person spends a lot of time worrying about flaws in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others.
People of any age can have BDD and it affects anyone of any gender or sex.
Having BDD does not mean you are vain or self-obsessed. It can be very upsetting and have a big impact on your life. Low mood, anxiety, emotional dysregulation, stress, trauma, self-harm and eating disorders are some of the other conditions that can co-occur with BDD.
Some of the symptoms of BDD include:
* worrying a lot about a sp…

Focus on.... Anorexia Nervosa

Focus on.... Anorexia Nervosa


The term ‘anorexia nervosa’ is itself misleading and generally considered a misnomer.
‘Anorexia’ implies the individual has lost all interest in food, never hungry and has no appetite. Yet, this is rarely the case. The opposite is more accurate of anorexia. 

The person experiencing anorexia is not only very interested in food and frequently very hungry, but as weight continues to decrease and the person reaches low-weight stages AN, his/her preoccupation and obsession with food becomes overwhelming. 

Nevertheless, the person will do everything in their power to deny and ignore these feelings & sensations & not permit him/herself to eat. This is a particularly important characteristic of AN, along with the individual’s attempt to strictly control food and eating, with great time & effort.
The question of ‘what is Anorexia Nervosa?’ is a difficult one to answer given particularly complex & multidimensional nature of the il…
