This workshop will offer participants an opportunity to learn more about the basics of CBT, and how to use this in clinical practice. Participants will gain a greater understanding of the key principles of CBT, and some key strategies that are used when working within this model. There will be many opportunities for role-play to ensure that participants become confident in their ability to use the skills.

Specifically we will look at:

  • the development of CBT
  • key principles
  • how to assess and formulate using this model
  • how to use CBT to structure sessions
  • application of a few key techniques
  • the why’s and how’s of using between-session tasks


Mariette Bothma started her career as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS in 2001, and has many years of
experience in using CBT in clinical practice as well as supervising others in
the use of this model. Mariette’s interest in CBT began by attending a few workshops,
and in 2009 she completed a Postgraduate Diploma in CBT, obtained from Royal Holloway, University of London.

Since then she has applied CBT to very complex cases in the NHS, and also uses this model in her current private practice. Mariette is interested in the new developments in CBT, in particular Compassionate Mind and how this can be used with clients who experience intense shame. Mariette enjoys running CBT groups, focusing on Psychological Well-being.
