Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a talking therapy that is mainly focused on how you think and act now, so it is primarily focused on the present as well as future goals rather than the past. It is recognised by NICE who provide independant evidence based advice to the NHS. During your session you will discuss specific issues that you would like to work on with your therapist, a treatment plan can be worked on together with goals and tasks to complete between sessions. The right level of client commitment is essential with CBT as tasks and techniques usually need to be completed between sessions.
NICE recommends CBT for the treatment of anxiety disorders (including panic attacks and post-traumatic stress disorder), depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, and bipolar disorder, there is also evidence to suggest that CBT is useful for treating chronic fatigue. behavioural difficulties in children, anxiety disorders in children, chronic pain, physical symptoms without a medical diagnosis, sleep difficulties, and anger management.
