Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based therapy which is widely used across the lifespan for a range of difficulties. It is recommended in many NICE guidelines and has attracted lots of NHS funding. This means that it is a therapy has the best evidence of good outcomes for a range of difficulties.
It is a time-limited, present-focused, goal-oriented therapy. This means that it focuses on the here-and-now and helps you achieve your specific goals. It is a brief therapy and can be anything from 3 to 24 sessions.
CBT looks at how the way you think and the way you act, interact to affect how you feel. In therapy, you and your therapist will identify the vicious cycles that keep you stuck and unhappy. By exploring these together, you will learn how to break this vicious cycle through using a range of coping strategies and techniques to reduce distress and enhance your wellbeing. A key feature is a collaborative relationship with your therapist.
