What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)?

CBT is a psychological therapy, based on scientific principles, which research has shown to be effective for a wide range of problems.

CBT is often used in short bursts – typically between 6 and 20 sessions, though more or less may be required depending on the nature and duration of the problem.

CBT focuses on specific goals and provides practical strategies for coping with psychological problems.

CBT teaches people a range of techniques and strategies to overcome problems, with the aim of enabling them to feel skilled and confident managing their difficulties, both in the short and longer term.

CBT often focuses more upon the ‘here and now’ and less on the past compared with some other types of therapy.

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has undertaken comprehensive research on CBT and recommends this treatment for a number of psychological difficulties including many of those listed here.
