Treatment Approaches

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This psychological therapy aims to help you change the way you think, feel and behave. This therapeutic approach has been proven to be clinically effective in treating a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults and young people. CBT looks at how we think about a situation which affects how we feel and act.  CBT uses evidence-based treatment and has demonstrated a strong treatment efficacy (Hofmann, S.G. et al, 2012).

All qualified CBT therapists are accredited by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). The therapist will help you understand how your current thought patterns and behaviour, in particular, any harmful, unhelpful, and skewed ideas or thoughts, maybe triggering and maintaining your problems, or making them worse. The aim is to change your way of thinking and behaving to establish more realistic and helpful patterns.
