Online CBT Resources was set up in 2017 by Andrew Grimmer, a counselling psychologist and accredited cognitive behavioural psychotherapist in the UK. My reason for developing the site was to make CBT resources more readily available to clients and therapists. There are excellent resources already, such as Psychology Tools and Get Self Help, but none that I am aware of that do not involve downloading and printing out materials. In this day and age it is often more convenient to have access to resources from your computer or mobile device.
This website is a personal project to discover whether there is a demand for such a service. I have developed it from personal and professional interest. I have been practising as a mental health professional for 20 years and care deeply about making resources for improved mental health and wellbeing more widely available. I hope that you will find these resources useful and convenient to use. I am very keen to hear about your experience and about ways that I can improve the site, so please feel free to contact me with your thoughts and ideas.
All of these worksheets are based on my professional clinical practice. They owe a huge intellectual debt to the huge body of professional knowledge that has accumulated about the theory and practice of CBT since its pioneer developers outlined its guiding principles in the middle of the 20th Century. I am hugely indebted to all of the academics and fellow practitioners who have contributed to the growth and success of this therapeutic approach. Specifically I am immensely grateful to the tutors and supervisors who have shaped and guided my development over the years, but especially to my clients whose openness, bravery and commitment to change and growth in the face of often overwhelming personal pain, helped shape my views on what safe, effective and professional therapy could and should be.
I am also extremely grateful and hugely indebted to my son Joel Grimmer for all his professional help in designing, implementing and maintaining this website, and especially for his patience with my struggle to develop my coding and scripting skills. This site would simply not have happened without his input. I'm sure he would love to talk to you about designing and building a website for you, if you could make use of his help. You can contact him here.
