This technique is called Graded Exposure, if you want to look it up. If this is interesting to you, you might be interested in the short course "Managing stress and anxiety with CBT" which we are running again in July. Keep an eye out for dates on the link below or find us on twitter @barefootcoaches or for me specifically, @tffbradshaw



Ted Bradshaw

Head of Academic Learning, Barefoot Coaching

I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and coach. I work for Barefoot Coaching as a tutor and I currently hold an honorary position as Assistant Professor of Psychological Therapies at the University of Nottingham, contributing to teaching and supervision of trainee CBT practitioners. I flipping love all of these roles. I have a real passion for helping people understand themselves better and I pride myself in putting things in simple, straightforward language. I consider myself to be very fortunate to work in this field as it has helped me personally. I would not be the person I am today if I had not come across all of this stuff, and I feel privileged to be in a position to share it with other people.
