Cognitive behavioural therapy is an evidence based treatment which is recommended by NICE to treat symptoms of anxiety, depression and a range of other mental health difficulties.
It is based on the principles of challenging and changing cognitive distortions and behaviours, along with emotional regulation and the development of coping strategies. This brief time limited therapy aims to show us that our feelings and behaviours are based on our thoughts rather than external stimuli.
