CBT is a talking therapy in which a client’s feelings and behaviour is addressed in order to overcome problems. It holds the believe that thoughts, feelings, physical reaction and actions are interconnected and that negative thinking impacts your physical and psychological wellbeing. Whatever you bring to the session, the aim would be to break it down into smaller parts and find practical ways to overcome the negative barrier.
Whereas other methods focus on the past of a client, CBT focuses on present issues to improve your state of mind. It is usually used to treat anxiety and depression focusing on short term therapy. Sessions are generally once a week lasting between 20 – 60 minutes depending on the therapist.
