Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Most people who seek therapy do so because they feel emotionally distressed in some way. Talking through these feelings may help, but in order to really change it is helpful to explore and start to change the thoughts and beliefs which underpin the feelings.

CBT is a talking therapy. It can help people who are experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties. What people think can affect how they feel and how they behave. During times of mental distress, people think differently about themselves and what happens to them.

These thoughts can become extreme and unhelpful and can worsen how a person feels to the degree that they may then behave in a way that prolongs their distress. CBT can help clients to identify and change their extreme thinking and unhelpful behaviour.

In doing this, the result is often a major improvement in how a person feels and lives. In therapy we can look at your thoughts and beliefs, how they affect your life, and attempt to change them in a positive direction.
