What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapeutic approach which is used to treat a range of emotional difficulties, as well as the psychological impact of physical health problems. The CBT therapy approach provides a model for understanding the relationships between our thoughts, feelings, behaviour, or actions and how we physically feel within ourselves. Different CBT models have been developed for working with different issues or difficulties, but generally the approach focuses on developing a deeper understanding of the thought patterns and behaviours maintaining a problem. CBT therapy can be used to treat a range of conditions (please see treatment section for further information).
Through direct work with the individual, the CBT therapist will carry out an assessment of the indivdual’s thoughts, behaviours, feelings and physical sensations, and how they interrelate. From this initial assessment, a therapeutic plan is developed to help them to overcome the problem or difficulty with which they’re struggling.
