What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based and solution focused talking therapy. It is based on the idea that our thoughts and behaviours can affect our emotions and is the recommended treatment for a range of mental health disorders according to The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Guidelines.
There are a wide variety of anxiety disorders such as panic, GAD, social anxiety and OCD. CBT can be helpful in managing the physical and cognitive symptoms through techniques such as mindfulness, relaxation and graded exposure.
Depression can be characterised by a sense of helplessness, fatigue, lack of interest and occasionally thoughts of suicide. CBT can help to understand the triggers and
implement lifestyle changes to improve your mood.
Low Self Esteem
Our sense of self can have a massive impact on how we view our attributes and abilities which can be damaging to our mental health. A CBT therapist will encourage you to explore where these beliefs come from and help you to learn to challenge them.
