More about CBT Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It's most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems

Many of our Psychotherapists and Counsellors incorporate CBT in their clients treatment. Clients are taught ways to change unhelpful thoughts and expectations and relaxation techniques are used.  It has been effective for stress-related ailments, phobias, obsessions, eating disorders and (often at the same time as drug treatment) major depression. 

CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.

CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You're shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.

Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.

CBT can also help people to cope better with symptoms of long term health conditions such as IBS and chronic fatigue syndrome.
