What is CBT?

Cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT for short, is a talking therapy. It aims to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviours and conditions by using goal-orientated procedures.

Cognitive behavioural therapy has been shown to be effective for the treatment of mood, anxiety, personality, eating, substance and psychotic disorders.

It is usually successful because it uses a systematic approach with specific goal orientated and time limited actions for the client to take. It focuses the client and encourages them through the completion of the goals.

Specific techniques used in CBT include keeping a diary of events and feelings, thoughs and behaviors, questioning and testing assumptions, values and beliefs, gradually facing activities that may have been avoided and trying out new ways of behaving and reacting.

CBT relies on honesty and openness between the client and therapist. This will help the therapist to develop strategies for managing the problems and guidlng the client to a reduction in the symptons.
