Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a talking therapy. It is a psychological treatment that aims to improve mental health.
Often the way we THINK affects how we feel and what we do.
How often have you thought something dreadful was about to happen? There has been no evidence for this, but you felt it anyway! How did you allow this feeling to affect your day? Maybe you avoided socialising or leaving your home because of how you felt?
Perhaps you feel compelled to carry out a very rigid and time-consuming ‘routine’ before leaving your home and this is starting to affect your life, your work or relationships? CBT can help you to address these common reactions to emotions and feelings.
CBT is essentially a treatment for depression and a range of anxiety disorders, such as: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Generalised Anxiety (chronic worry) Health Anxiety, Phobias and Social Anxiety.
