Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is a widely used, short-term ‘talking therapy’ which is based on the premise that the way you feel can be altered by making changes to the way you think and/or act. CBT has been shown to help people with:

  • generalised anxiety disorder, panic, phobias and social anxiety
  • obsessive compulsive disorder
  • post-traumatic stress disorder
  • depression
  • eating disorders
  • relationship issues
  • anger and stress

In CBT, we help you to become aware of the thoughts, beliefs and behaviours attached to an issue that are causing you difficulties. We then teach you to recognise the difference between helpful and unhelpful thoughts, and then how to make better choices around your thoughts and behaviours.
