Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a talking therapy that can help you
manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.
CBT works by changing people's attitudes and their behaviour by focusing on the thoughts, images, beliefs and attitudes that are held (a person's cognitive processes) and how these processes relate to the way a person behaves, as a way of dealing with emotional problems.
Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy can lead to a range of benefits, including the following:
Identifying negative thoughts and emotions
Preventing addiction relapse
Coping with grief and loss
Managing chronic pain
Overcoming trauma and dealing with PTSD
Overcoming sleep disorders
Resolving relationship difficulties
