cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is an evidenced based talking therapy

CBT is a collaborative and structured therapy which focuses on the ‘here and now’. It is one of the most extensively researched of the psychotherapies and this research has shown that it can be effective for a wide range of issues.

how does CBT work?

It looks at how your thoughts, assumptions, beliefs and behaviours interact and the impact they have on your mood and emotions. It works on the premise that it is not necessarily events that upset us but more the meanings we attach to them.

what happens in the sessions?

Within the sessions the therapist will help you to identify specific targets that you would like to achieve and how you think about yourself, other people and the world.

You and the therapist will work together to understand your problems and how they impact on your thoughts, emotions, mood and actions and in turn how this can become a vicious cycle.

how does CBT help?

CBT enables you to make changes in the way you think and what you do. It equips you with strategies to manage and make positive changes in negative thoughts and behaviours.

This in turn has a positive effect on your mood and emotions. You can then utilise these strategies independently both now and in the future.
