If I am currently on a course of therapy for an issue(anxiety) and during my therapy it brings up other deep rooted issues (I can't focus on both issues during this course), can i start another course of CBT, or other therapies, after I have finish my current course to deal with this? If so, how would I go about arranging this when my current therapy ends, would I speak to my therapist/wellbeing practitioner or would I need to go through another assessment?

Thank you for your question. Yes, once your therapy is finished you may be able to have further courses of treatment, either in the form of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy or another therapy, such as counselling for example. The type of treatment recommended would depend on what is shown to be most effective therapy for the problem you want to work on, and your preference as a patient for treatment.

If you are currently in treatment you can discuss this with your therapist. Or if this is something you decide to address at a later date, when therapy has ended, you can simply re-refer and have a further assessment to discuss the best course of action.
