What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)?

CBT is an evidence-based talking therapy which is recommended for the treatment of mental health problems including depression and anxiety disorders. CBT works on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, behaviours and physical sensations are interconnected and can form “vicious cycles” which can leave us feeling stuck.

Using a CBT framework, we work together to build an in-depth assessment and formulation of the problem in order to understand the best way forward. You will be supported to learn a number of tools and techniques to break these vicious cycles and create positive change in your life.

What can CBT treat?

CBT is a type of talking therapy that can help to improve mental health by altering the way you think and behave.

There are many mental health issues that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can be helpful for.

We use cognitive behavioural therapy to treat a wide range of conditions including:

  • Depression 

  • Low self-esteem

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder

  • Panic Disorder

  • Health anxiety

  • Social anxiety

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Body Dysmorphic Disorder

  • Phobia

  • Many more...

The CBT process


The assessment involves exploring the nature of the problem in more detail. We will ask you lots of questions about what you are experiencing, as well as some background information about your history and any previous mental health support. 


The formulation enables us to bring together all of the assessment information into a visual or diagram form. The formulation should be an easy way to understand where the problem came from and what is keeping it going. A good formulation shows us what needs to change in order for you to meet your goals.


We use our assessment and formulation to build a treatment plan which is tailored to your unique, personalised goals for therapy. Your CBT therapist will support you to learn tools and techniques to work on the areas for change we have identified.
