Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective, short-term, evidence-based talking therapy.
It is built upon the idea that our thoughts, emotions, behaviours and how our bodies feel are all connected.
Therefore, if we can find a way to change just one of these elements, we can make a change in all of the others too.
CBT is a collaborative therapy, meaning it is not 'done to you', but you will work together with your CBT therapist towards mutually agreed goals.
You will be encouraged to take an active role in your therapy and from time to time you may be asked to complete in-between session tasks.
The aim is for you to learn some additional tools and techniques to enable you to become your own therapist.
