What is CBT?

CBT (or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) is an active, goal-directed talking therapy that focuses on the way people think and act in order to help them overcome their emotional and behavioural difficulties. CBT has been researched and tested more than any other psychotherapy approach, and has been shown to be an effective treatment for a wide range of problems. Research indicates that people who have CBT for various types of problem – in particular anxiety and depression – stay well for longer. The National Institute of Care Excellence (NICE) recommends CBT as the first-line treatment for various kinds of anxiety and depressive disorders.
