What is CBT?

 

In a nutshell CBT allows the client to explore how their feelings may be impacted upon by their current thinking style/patterns and how this then effects the decisions they make about how to respond (behaviour).



 

All therapeutic approaches are embedded within research evidence and follow recommendations by the NICE guidelines (guidelines that inform the NHS about the current most effective treatments for all physical and mental health problems).
