What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)?
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a therapeutic approach which is based on how our thinking could affect how we feel and how we react or behave in certain situations and the effect of this on our daily lives.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy tends to focus on a specific issue which the client wishes to address in therapy, focusing on the present rather than what happened in the past.
Based on this, the therapy work would involve exploring with the clients their patterns of thinking, their feelings, behaviour and how they could change.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a greatly researched approach and is proven to be successful in treating issues such as: anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, depression, low self-esteem, stress, insomnia, gambling and anger.
What does Accredited member of the BABCP mean?
The BABCP is the lead organisation for CBT in the UK and Accreditation is the act of recognition by the organisation that the professional concerned demonstrates they meet the standards set by the BABCP (for further information please visit www.babcp.com).
Is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) suitable for me?
This would be discussed with the therapist in the first session, however as mentioned above, if the client has a specific issue which is affecting their life at present and they wish to address this including changing their way of thinking and behaviour, then CBT might be a suitable approach to consider.
