What is CBT ?

CBT is an evidence-based treatment for anxiety and mood disorders recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). CBT is based on the concept that cognitions (thoughts), feelings, physical sensations and behaviours are interconnected. That unhelpful thoughts and feelings can trap us in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help clients deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts and changing your relationship with them. Several different techniques are used to explore negative beliefs held about the self, others and the world. By challenging our negative beliefs, patients will experience a change in their feelings and behaviour. Whilst therapy focuses on the here and now life experience will be explored, we know that our childhood shapes our view of ourselves and the world. When working with Children and Young People their parents are often brought in as co-therapists, the support they offer their child outside of the therapy sessions supports change and progress.
