Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT is a family of talking therapies, all based on the idea that thoughts, feelings, what we do, and how our bodies feel, are all connected. If we change one of these, we can alter all the others.

When we are low or upset, we often fall into patterns of thinking and responding which can worsen how we feel. CBT works to help us notice and change problematic thinking styles or behaviour patterns so we can feel better.

CBT is a collaborative therapy - it’s not something that is done to someone, it’s a way of working together with a CBT therapist on mutually agreed goals.

CBT works for lots of different people and problems and is widely recommended by national treatment guidelines across the UK, EU and North America.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) provides independent, evidence based guidance for the NHS on the most effective, proven treatments.

Goals for therapy are set together with the therapist after talking things through to properly understand the problem and will be working on both in-between and during sessions. Once the therapy comes to an end, we will think together about continuing to use CBT techniques in daily life after treatment.
