Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
What is CBT?
CBT is a type of counselling where the therapist works collaboratively with you to help identify and change the thinking and behaviour which are contributing to your problems and difficulties.
Unlike some other talking treatments, it focuses on how to tackle problems and difficulties you are having in the 'here and now' rather than spending a lot of time trying to find causes for your issues in your past.
There is a huge evidence base behind cognitive behavioural approaches so you can have confidence that the interventions are effective.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapists are trained to assess mental health disorders and work with emotional distress.
Typical client issues would be anxiety, (including Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Health Anxiety and Social Anxiety) depression, phobias, panic attacks, insomnia, PTSD and OCD. CBT is also helpful in dealing with many emotional issues such as grief, relationship problems, work stress and insomnia.
