Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a conversational therapy that can help you manage your issues by altering the way you think and act.
CBT cannot get rid of your problems, but it can enable you to deal with them in a more constructive way. It is centred on the concept that your emotions, thoughts, sensations and actions are all linked, and that negative thoughts and feelings can confine you into a vicious cycle.
CBT enables you to help crack this cycle by disintegrating overwhelming problems into smaller parts and teaching you how to alter these negative patterns to make a difference to the way you feel.
Unlike many other talking treatments, CBT taclkles your current problems, instead of focusing on issues in your past. It looks for practical ways to improve your state of mind on a daily basis.
