What is CBT?
CBT, or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, is a talking therapy. It has been proved to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults, young people and children. CBT looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects the way we act. In turn our actions can affect how we think and feel. The therapist and client work together in changing the client’s behaviours, or their thinking patterns, or both.
There is a great deal of research evidence to show that CBT works effectively in treating a range of Mental Health Conditions. This research has been carefully reviewed by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
NICE provides independent, evidence-based guidance for the NHS on the most effective ways to treat disease and ill health. CBT is recommended by NICE for the treatment of conditions such as Depression and Anxiety Disorders.
What can CBT help with?
NICE recommends CBT in the treatment of the following conditions:
anxiety disorders (including panic attacks and post-traumatic stress disorder)
obsessive compulsive disorder
schizophrenia and psychosis
There is also good evidence that CBT is helpful in treating many other conditions, including:
behavioural difficulties in children
anxiety disorders in children
physical symptoms without a medical diagnosis
CBT can be used if you are on medication which has been prescribed by your GP. You can also use CBT on its own. This will depend on the difficulty you want help with.
How CBT is delivered
CBT can be offered in individual sessions with a therapist or as part of a group. The number of CBT sessions you need depends on the difficulty you need help with. CBT is mainly concerned with how you think and act now, instead of looking at and getting help with difficulties in your past.
We will discuss your specific difficulties and set goals for you to achieve. CBT is not a quick fix. It involves hard work during and between sessions. I will not tell you what to do. Instead I will help you decide what difficulties you want to work on in order to help you improve your situation. I will be able to advise you on how to continue using CBT techniques in your daily life after your treatment ends.
