Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is:
One of the most effective treatments for conditions where anxiety or depression is the main problem.
It is a way of talking about:
- How you think about yourself, the world and other people.
- How what you do affects your thoughts and feelings.
CBT is an approach used by therapists and psychologists to help promote quick and positive change in people.
CBT can help you to change how you think (‘Cognitive’) and what you do (‘Behaviour’). These changes can help you to feel better. Unlike some of the other talking treatments, it focuses on the ‘here and now’ problems and difficulties you may be experiencing, instead of focussing on the causes of your distress or symptoms in the past. It looks for ways to improve you state of mind now.
CBT has been found to be helpful in:
- Agoraphobia and other phobias
- Social phobia
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Post traumatic stress disorder
