Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy. CBT looks at the links between the way we think, the way we behave and the emotions or physical sensations we experience. These links can form a vicious cycle, a pattern which can maintain feelings of low mood, stress, and anxiety. CBT helps you to understand and break these patterns which can lead to improvements in mental wellbeing.
CBT is recommended by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) to treat depression and anxiety disorders.
