Graded Exposure

Graded Exposure may be done as a part of CBT therapy if you are struggling with issues such as anxiety. It involves a process called ‘habituation’ which refers to how you/your bodys get used to things the more you do them/expose yourself to them. It may start with writing down a ‘ladder’ of things that you find worrying/difficult ('least' at the bottom, 'most' at the bottom). Then, the clinician will help you work up the ladder, moving up as you feel more able to do each thing on your list.
