What is cognitive-behaviour therapy?
Cognitive-behaviour Therapy (CBT) – also sometimes called cognitive-behavioural therapy – examines unhelpful emotions, behaviours and thoughts which create and maintain problems. Although we may not realise it, every thought we have, however fleeting, directly affects how we feel and what we do. For example, if we think we are a failure, we are likely to feel miserable whereas if we think we are a success we are likely to feel upbeat. Cognitive behaviour therapists work with clients to modify the way they think and behave to improve how they feel.
What issues/problems can cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) help with?
Cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) is a popular approach which has proven effective in helping to manage a variety of problems such as depression, anxiety, panic disorder, phobias and obsessive compulsive disorder to name a few. Indeed, cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT) is the mainstream treatment for depression and anxiety in the NHS as it was the first therapy to be shown to be as effective as drug interventions for these problems. However, cognitive-behaviour therapy is not a quick fix solution and may not suit everyone as the onus lies on the client to apply the techniques they learn in sessions to their everyday lives.
