What is CBT?
CBT, or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, is a talking therapy that has been proven to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults, young people and children.
CBT looks at how we think about a situation and in turn how this affects the way we act. As we grow, we learn how to adapt to different situations, but as circumstances change our patterns of thoughts and behaviours can sometimes become unhelpful.
In CBT, the therapist and client work together in challenging and adapting the clients unhelpful behaviours or thinking patterns in certain situations. Often a client will need approximately 6 sessions for therapy to be effective.
This is a well researched therapy and is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
