COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
CBT Therapy | Harley St | Central London
What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a talking therapy that helps a person to understand how what you think (cognition), affects the way you feel and subsequently what you do (or don't do) (behaviour). Through CBT, you can learn how these components relate to one another and find ways in which to challenge and change automatic thoughts or unhelpful thinking in order to feel better.
How does it work?
The insights gained from this approach can help a person to feel better relatively quickly and to help manage difficult feelings and behaviour. The focus of the therapy is largely on the 'here and now' although it often helps to link into understanding how current issues may have developed from past experiences.
What can it help me with?
CBT is a leading evidence-based approach and research supports its effectiveness and usefulness for many different types of problems including; anger, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, social anxiety, eating disorders, mood disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and psychosis. It can also help with pain management and substance abuse.
Effectively CBT assumes a problem solving approach and aims to break down current issues into five main areas: situations, thoughts, feelings (emotions & physical sensations) and behaviour (actions).
What do I have to do?
Through discussion, exercises and 'real-world' tasks you can gain helpful insight into how these areas interrelate and learn effective ways in which to respond, challenge, change and manage your thinking, feelings and behaviour.
