Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an approach that works to help you change the way you think about the things that are troubling you. It is designed to help your altered perspective influence how you then behave and respond to your outlook on the aspects of your life that you are struggling with.

Commonly known as CBT, this type of approach is recomended in NICE guidleines for a number of psychological issues, and so is often proposed by doctors, as the NHS uses CBT regularly, due to its results focused approach.

When you engage with a CBT approach the aim is to see a steady measurable improvement through the use of exercises, goals and even homework, designed to help you take control of your thinking and behaviour so that you feel mentally stronger and more in control.

CBT is most often used with depression and anxiety, as it is a practical approach and so helps you to feel that you are part of your own improvement, which in turn empowers you even more.

However, it is not limited to these difficulties and can be used where any mental states that are considered to be negatively affecting your life can be worked with and changed.
