Clinical Psychology

My name is Sian Hocking and I am a HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologist offering Individual Psychological Therapy at TWC.


I offer 1:1 sessions with clients with a range of difficulties, and have experience of working with both young people as well as adults.

 

The approaches that underpin my work with clients are evidence based, and are recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence. 

 

 

One of the approaches that I regularly use in my work is called 'Cognitive Behavioural Therapy', known as ‘CBT’.

 

CBT focuses on the thoughts you have about yourself, others and the world. It also emphasises the relationship between your thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

 

 

By making links between what we do, think and feel, CBT can help us make changes in the way we think ("Cognitive") and the way we act ("Behaviour)". Making changes in what we think will affect what you do and feel, and changing what we do, affects the way we think and feel. Making these changes then can help us feel better.

Whilst it is helpful to discuss the past, and understand how our pasts have influenced our lives, and how the problems have come about, CBT mostly focuses on looking for ways to improve your mental wellbeing now, and making positive steps for the future.
CBT says that it's not the event which causes our emotions, but how we interpret that event - what we think, or what meaning we give that event.
