CBT

What is CBT?

CBT is a talking therapy with a strong evidence base for people experiencing common mental health conditions.  CBT focusses on the problems someone may be experiencing whilst emphasising the relationship between life events, thoughts, feelings, body symptoms and behaviours.

What does CBT involve?

CBT is a short term therapeutic approach.  The first few sessions are spent with your therapists to form a clear understating of your condition and set goals for therapy.   A plan will be developed that will enable the cycles that are maintaining the problem to be broken.
