What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), is a goal-oriented therapy that can produce rapid results.
It looks at how an individual thinks about a situation and how this affects the way they act. The therapist and client work together to change the client’s behaviours, or their thinking patterns, or both of these.
The success of CBT has been proven time and time again in the treatment of the most prevalent of mental disorders – depression. CBT in the treatment of depression has been statistically proven to change brain chemistry without medication, and is endorsed right across the board from within the NHS and throughout the private sector. NICE guidelines on depression say that ‘cognitive-behavioural therapy should be offered, as it is of equal effectiveness to anti-depressants’.
