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.

How CBT works

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.
