Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - CBT- was developed primarily through the merging of cognitive therapy and behaviour therapy.

CBT can help us to understand the relationship between out thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

How we think can have a powerful influence on ho we feel and what we do.

CBT can help us break our vicious ous circles of thoughts, feelings and behaviours. It can help us to make sense of problems by breaking them down into manageable pieces which makes them easier to understand.

Common CBT techniques include

  • challenging irrational beliefs and replacing them with alternative ones
  • stopping unhelpful thoughts
  • gradual exposure to situations

CBT is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence - NICE- as the therapy of choice for anxiety and depression
