COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
Depression, panic attacks and mental illness can be helped greatly using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.  It is considered on of the most effective therapy methods available today.  In Ireland, this therapy is expensive and not readily available.  Back in the 1930’s Dr Abraham Low developed the first recongnised system of Cognitive Behavioural Training in Chicago.  The organization is called Recovery International and it still runs today.  Recovery International hold meetings at several locations in Ireland and telephone meetings every week.  Every Thursday night at 7.30 there is a phone meeting which allows participants to learn the Recovery method and improve their lives.  At the meetings you learn the skills and simple methods to deal with everyday difficulties.  It is free voluntary service and provides each participant with the tools to make real changes in their daily life.

If you would like more information please contact “Recovery International Ireland” or call Ian Cullen at 053 9240787 to find out how Recovery works.
