The aim of CBT is to improve your quality of life by helping you to develop new strategies to manage non-epileptic seizures.
In CBT you learn to notice patterns in your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. You are helped to understand the impact that these patterns can have on dissociative seizures as well as your overall wellbeing.
You work with your therapist to decide on the goals you hope to achieve through CBT. You will be invited to practice different tasks between sessions to help you develop the skills you need to manage dissociative seizures and work towards your goals.
