What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy sounds complicated. In fact CBT is a practical, structured problem-solving approach that helps people deal effectively with a range common emotional and physical health problems.
Extensive scientific research has shown CBT to be a successful treatment and individuals with anxiety and depression who receive CBT are significantly less likely to relapse than those treated with medication alone. Stress, anxiety and depression are associated with negative patterns of thinking, unhelpful behavioural patterns and deterioration in physical health.
CBT is a way of bringing into awareness of how we think about ourselves, the world, other people and the future. By learning to think in a more helpful way; you can live more happily, positively and enjoy greater resilience, productivity and a better quality of life.
CBT is active, time limited and solution focused. It teaches you to bring into awareness thoughts, moods, behaviours and physical reactions experienced in various situations in your life. CBT involves a process of learning to change unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour.
Although CBT is now the treatment of choice for a wide range of physical and psychological problems it is not always the best approach for every problem and, after a comprehensive assessment, our highly experienced doctors and psychologists will be able to recommend the most appropriate clinical approach for each individual.
In summary CBT is a brief and structured treatment intervention focusing on the here-and-now, designed to help you manage your own problems and improve your emotional and physical wellbeing.
