Hi, it’s Rosie again, content manager here at Uncommon Knowledge. Because the first CBT worksheets article quickly became one of the most popular on the site, I’ve had another created for you.
CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) remains one of the most widely used therapeutic treatment approaches in mental health today. With its heavy emphasis on homework and tasks that take place outside of the therapy room, CBT challenges practitioners to continually find clinically sound and accessible worksheets, tools, and resources from reliable sources.
Well, challenge accepted! We’ve scoured the internet to find more of those hidden gems that every CBT therapist loves to have in their toolbox.

Helping a UPTV client overcome her fear of failure
This client qualified seven months ago as a hypnotherapist. She has created a space in her house in which she can see clients but she feels she just can’t do it. She knows people who could come and see her but she hasn’t yet said yes to them.
Mark uses solution focussed questions, reframing, conversational hypnosis and hypnotic phenomena to help expand her ideas as to what hypnosis is and how it can be done. She has suffered from depression but says that thanks to doing one of the Uncommon Knowledge courses she is now depression free! She has theorized that her fear of success/failure may be related to a school time experience, and feels she could have done better in life than she has done.
Mark begins to induce hypnosis by describing it and uses arm levitation, eyelid catalepsy, and hypnotic rehearsal to help her feel ready to actually start seeing clients. Click here to be notified when UPTV is open for booking.
