Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a talking therapy that focuses on a person’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours. It is an evidence based psychotherapy recommended for the treatment of depression, anxiety and related conditions. Therapy is based mainly on the ‘here and now’ rather than the past, although this may be addressed during treatment.
The aim of the therapy is to enable you to develop solutions to the problems you have which are more helpful than your present ways of coping. CBT is therefore often thought of as a ‘doing’ therapy, as most of the work is done by the individual in-between sessions.
CBT sessions are normally an hour and are always face to face. Our CBT therapists work in a variety of locations across the district, to make attending as convenient as possible.
