CBT or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) for the treatment of a wide range of psychological difficulties.
During times of psychological distress, we think differently about ourselves and what happens to us. Our thoughts can become extreme and unhelpful, and affect how we feel about ourselves. To cope with how we feel we may behave in unhelpful ways that prolongs our distress. Over time our quality of life and relationships with others may become affected.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a short term, problem focused therapy that aims to directly target and reduce distressing symptoms, re-evaluate thinking and change unhelpful behaviours. Dependent on the nature of a client’s difficulties this may mean that we need to consider earlier life experiences.
CBT helps clients to make changes and learn therapy skills that they can use throughout their life.
