Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is an evidence-based talking therapy (psychotherapy) that can effectively address a wide range of concerns including: anxiety disorders, insomnia, chronic pain, anger issues, eating disorders, weight management, psychosomatic disorders, depression, and general stress.
The evidence-base of CBT is very strong.
Why is choosing an evidence-based therapy important?
So that we know…
The treatment gains are due to the inventions.
The interventions are effective and do not cause harm.
The interventions can be provided by different therapists and lead to consistent outcomes.
What is CBT like?
When we work within a CBT framework, we identify unhelpful thoughts that shape your feelings, decisions, and actions. We then examine those thoughts in a safe and non-judgmental way.
CBT provides you with greater understanding of your internal dialogue, helping you to establish different thinking patterns and beliefs that more accurately reflect your experience and self-image.
