CBT

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It focuses on your thoughts, attitudes and beliefs and how they affect your behaviour, and teaches your coping skills for dealing with difficult problems or situations. CBT challenges the negative thought patterns which may be causing you to experience things in a negative way. If these thought patterns go unchallenged then negative thoughts can become a vicious cycle, which may lead to depression and anxiety.
