Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy. It has been proven to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in children/ young people and adults. CBT looks at the way people think about a situation and how this affects the way they act.
The therapist and client work together in changing the client’s behaviour and/ or thinking patterns.
CBT can help make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. In CBT, problems are broken down into five main areas:
- Physical feelings
CBT is based on the concept of these five areas being interconnected and affecting each other. For example, how your thoughts about a certain situation can often affect how you feel both physically and emotionally, as well as how you act in response.
