Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

What is CBT?

Cognitive behaviour theory assumes that problems in living are maintained by patterns of thinking, feeling (both mental and physical) and behaviour that occur in different situations. Cognitive behaviour therapists work with their clients to develop an understanding of problems by noticing unhelpful cycles of thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Therapy progresses by active engagement in strategies to break unhelpful links and by testing out new ways of thinking and behaving. CBT is known as a structued, time-limited therapy, and it is a client’s goals and progress towards them that drives the process.
