Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is an evidence-based treatment based on the idea that thoughts, feelings and behaviours are interconnected. The essence of cognitive therapy is to examine underlying thoughts behind the emotional problems and to generate alternative, more balanced thoughts. Cognitive therapists aim to work on your thoughts and behaviours to help improve how you feel.
The number of Cognitive Therapy sessions depends on your presenting issues. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy tends to be short term. A first consultation will establish how many Cognitive Behavioural Therapy sessions may be indicated.
The Government-produced NICE guidelines recommend Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as a treatment of choice for a number of mental health issues. This is based on numerous studies showing the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
