Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is usually a short to medium term therapy of between 6 and 20 sessions. It aims to help people overcome upsetting and sometimes unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour.
The way we think about situations affects the ways in which we might act. Our behaviours or actions will also impact on how we think and feel.
CBT helps to identify how these patterns of thinking may have developed in early life and uses this understanding to explore current unhelpful thoughts which contribute to the maintenance of the problem.
Changing your behaviours and thinking patterns can often improve your mood. CBT is based on a collaborative relationship with the therapist and usually you will jointly agree some goals to work towards.
CBT is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines for anxiety disorders including OCD, for depression and for some trauma issues.
