Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an evidence based psychological talking therapy, effective with a wide range of conditions, such as anxiety disorders, OCD, depression, eating disorders, ADHD, ASD and others.
CBT is an approach where scientific evidence has been shown to demonstrate that the methods employed in a CBT intervention are effective in eliciting change and is widely the treatment of choice across many health institutions worldwide.
CBT is based on a core set of principles. Primarily that individuals, through experience or otherwise, can develop unhelpful thoughts and behaviours which create, maintain or exacerbate their psychological distress. Through both cognitive and behavioural techniques, those learnt thoughts and behaviours can be re-balanced in the individual, reducing or removing the psychological concerns present. Likewise, CBT also aims to support the client in learning better coping methods to manage that challenges that life throws us. This would typically include supporting the client in learning to identify unhelpful thinking patterns or cognitions in the future and having effective behavioural techniques to self-manage.
CBT, like many psychological treatments, is based on collaborative working, warmth, empathy and trust. Setting goals are very important in the intervention, and these would be discussed and agreed together by the therapist and client. CBT places emphasis on helping clients learn to be their own therapist.
