Highly Effective

CBT is well-known and widely used around the world. It has been studied extensively, with a massive wave of evidence confirming that it is highly effective at treating varying mental health conditions.

What Is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy?

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy, or talking therapy, commonly used in treating anxiety, depression and other mental problems. It can also help an individual deal with grief, reduce stress and handle complicated relationships. It works on the concept that modification of a person’s beliefs, actions, and feelings can enable them to better face different life challenges.

In CBT, a person is taught by a CBT therapist how to identify, challenge, and get rid of negative thoughts. Practical self-help strategies are introduced to bring about positive changes in a person’s life. CBT is a goal-oriented and problem-specific approach requiring the active involvement of the individual. The focus is on current challenges, behaviours, and thoughts.

Why See A Cognitive Behaviour Therapist?

The strategies involved can be applied to your everyday life even after completing the treatment
