Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a type of psychological intervention where the therapist helps the client identify negative patterns that have arisen in the way they think and feel, that have led to issues such as anxiety and depression, as well as other mental and emotional difficulties.
CBT focuses on the present time, and current problems and how patterns that have build up are impacting a client’s daily life. CBT breaks these patterns down into the way in which thoughts, actions, feelings, and felt physical sensations are connected, and can link in a viscous cycle where daily life is impacted.
Once identified, patterns can be changed, and this can lead to improvement in clients’ wellbeing and mental health.
CBT is used in personality disorder, phobia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia, panic disorder, substance addition and misuse, psychosis and schizophrenia.
