Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems and gives you coping skills for dealing with difficulties.
It’s most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems.
CBT is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you into vicious cycles.
CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller more manageable parts.
You work in collaboration with your CBT therapist to identify how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel , it looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.
