Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is commonly know as a talking therapy that can support you to manage your problems by helping you reflect and adjust the way you think and behave. It provides a quick fix whilst allowing the appropriate time required to deal with any underlying causes. We have included a number of links in our information, and these will talk you to detail written on the NHS website.
How CBT actually works
CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that your negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle.
CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. We show you how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel.
Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis. This is why we say it supports a quick fix to empower you to deal with your internal programming which has been formed from your past.
