Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy is very commonly offered therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave.
It is usually the first line of therapy to treat most of anxiety disorders and depression but can also be useful for other mental and physical health problems.
CBT is based on the concept that the way you think, you feel, and you behave is intertwined and therefore if a positive change in the way you think and you behave is achieved, the way you feel will change too.
Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT is based on “here and now” principle and so deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. It therefore looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.
