Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
What is CBT and how can it work for you?
Did you know that the way you feel about your world and things that you do affect your thoughts and feelings?
CBT can help you to change how you think (Cognitive) and what you do (Behaviour.) Making changes can help you to feel better. Focusing on the "here and now" problems and difficulties instead of focusing on the causes of your distress or symptoms in the past.
CBT looks for ways to improve your state of mind now. How you think about a problem can affect how you feel physically and emotionally. It can also alter what you do about it.
Depression and anxiety are unpleasant. They can seriously affect your ability to work and enjoy life. CBT can help you to control the symptoms. It is unlikely to have a negative effect on your life, apart from the time you need to give up to do it. Sessions last between 40 minutes and 1hr 15
It has been shown to be useful with Anxiety, Depression, Panic, Phobias, Eating disorders, Obsessive compulsive disorder, Post traumatic stress disorder and Schizophrenia.
CBT is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)
