CBT - what the heck?

First let's get the jokes, etc out of the way. That's CBT = Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. That's all.

Those of you keeping track may remember these things:

I filled in and returned Counselling Services' stupidly-long and intimidating questionnaire last April/May;
I went for my initial CBT assessment last December;
I got my results and a "when we can" invitation for up to 45 individual sessions of CBT in February.

TODAY I've been sent "an initial assessment appointment so that you can discuss your current difficulties and problems in detail and we can explore with you the most appropriate form of help available". That's for Wednesday 31st May.

Isn't that what we just did in December?

If this turns out to be just a refresh so that I don't start showing up on any overdue lists there will be blood.
