Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, is an evidence-based approach to improving mental health. CBT helps you change and challenge any thoughts, attitudes or beliefs that might be unhelpful or harmful. It helps you develop coping strategies that aim to solve issues you have today. While it was originally developed as a method to tackle depression, today it is used for many mental health issues, including anxiety.

CBT is a tool your therapist may choose to use. It is not the only option so they may opt for other methods as the same time or individually depending on the need.

When choosing a Therapist consider factors of suitability outside of CBT. It is a given that they have the ability and qualifcation to use it so it becomes more about what you are hoping to achieve
