Cognitive Behaviour Therapy – CBT

CBT - Cognitive behaviour therapyCognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy, which was originally designed to treat depression. However, it is now used to treat several other conditions, such as anxiety, panic, phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia), stress, bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and psychosis.

CBT may also help in difficulties with anger, having a low opinion of oneself or physical health problems, like pain or fatigue. CBT can also help to change the way you think (‘Cognitive’), and what you do (‘Behaviour’). It also tends to focus more on the ‘here and now’ problems and difficulties.

As a result, instead of focusing on the causes of your distress or symptoms in the past, it looks for ways of improving your state of mind now – in the present.
