Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) is a modality that has evolved from Cognitive and Behavioural therapy. CBT has been shown to be a very effective way of treating depression and anxiety. It’s success has been demonstrated through all age groups. CBT has many tried and tested methods which the patient and therapist work with to bring about an effective treatment.

CBT basically works with how a person thinks. In CBT it is believed that it is the thinking that influences a person’s mood and behaviour. By learning to evaluate their thinking the patient can adapt their way of behaving and experience improved emotional and mental wellbeing.

At a deeper level CBT can work with the core beliefs that a person may have, these core beliefs may have developed from childhood. By modifying the way a person thinks CBT can modify how a person thinks. For example, a core belief of; “I am useless at everything’ can be adjusted so the patient develops a more positive view on their abilities. CBT has been extensively researched and its effectiveness has been proven throughout the medical world.
