What is CBT?

Should I see someone for counselling or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

This is a question that people often ask when they come to see us, especially when they are looking for treatment for anxiety or depression.  CBT has the best evidence for it working especially with anxiety, when the NHS says that it should be the only form of therapy offered.

Often people come to CBT after having had some counselling which they have not found effective for the difficulties that they wanted to change.

What CBT aims to give you is not only an understanding of how yourdifficulties were formed and maintained, but importantly, how to actively manage or RESOLVE them.
