Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.
CBT is a form of psychotherapy used to treat depression, anxiety disorders, phobias, and other forms of problems in a positive way. It 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.
It involves recognising distorted thinking and learning to replace it with more realistic substitute ideas. Through the process we work with you to crack the cycle of negative thoughts and feelings by breaking down overwhelming problems into smaller parts and showing you 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.
