Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps people to understand themselves better and to learn how to develop more effective ways of viewing and dealing with stressors.
Research shows that CBT can be as effective as medication in the long-term treatment of depression. The Government’s NICE guidelines recommends CBT for treatment of mental health problems.
CBT can help with anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, anger problems, drug and alcohol abuse, relationship problems and difficulties with sleep.
CBT helps to explain the link between the thoughts we have about life events and the feelings and behaviours that result. By learning how to break problems down into manageable components CBT helps people to develop skills in better managing themselves and the challenges that arise in our lives.
