This is an educational enrichment exploring the underpinning principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Lessons address the links between thoughts, feelings and behaviours. It educates students about effective tools and strategies to support overall well-being.
“I joined CBT from a career perspective to help boost my personal statement and help me later, not only has it done that but it has helped me massively on a personal level to deal with some of my own worries and stresses.” (Student)
Topics include: The CBT cycle; unhelpful thinking styles; unhelpful behaviours; emotions; self-esteem; physical sensations and attention focus; lifestyle; relaxation strategies, including colouring therapy.
No, this is an educational enrichment. It is not a replacement for accessing the tutors, the safeguarding team or other relevant mental health services to support your needs.
Many reasons including: developing self-awareness; exam stress; anxiety about coming into college; poor motivation; low mood; to manage emotions more effectively; to develop healthy coping strategies in stressful situations. This enrichment may be of interest to students wanting to pursue careers in clinical psychology, social care, medicine, dentistry, midwifery, teaching, law etc.

‘I found this enrichment really helpful for procrastination, revision techniques, social anxiety and more! It's really interesting to learn about how psychologists can apply this therapy to so many different problems.’ (Student)
My experience at Wyke has been an overwhelming success. I thought that moving from a small school to a larger college would be a daunting experience yet it wasn’t at all. Everyone is so friendly and approachable. Flyers has provided me with so many useful skills and experiences which I will never forget.
The independence and opportunity to meet new people was why I chose to study my A Levels at the College. I enjoyed being able to complete an EPQ as it allowed me to research and write about a topic I found interesting.
I knew Wyke was the College I wanted to study at because I felt it had a much more mature and relaxed environment than other colleges. I knew I wanted to study Human, Social and Political Sciences at university and my teachers and Flyers mentor offered me additional support sessions to further develop my knowledge in these areas.
I was attracted to studying at Wyke because it offered me with many opportunities that would allow me to progress into Higher Education. Being a Flyer I have gained invaluable skills, experiences and support with my personal statement for university.
