I would contact your local physician and ask for a recommendation to a therapist that uses CBT therapy.  The people I know have done a 1:1 CBT program.  I am sure you will get other info as many here have learned CBT and recommend it highly.

Gentle Hugs.

I think you can do either. Some hospitals provide programs and stuff that are both group and 1:1.

I think its what you prefer..

Hi Shelly,
 
If your regular physician doesn't know of anyone, ask your psychiatrist (if you have one).  He/she should be able to give you some recommendations of who to go to for CBT.
 
Good luck!!   yeah
