CBT Explained

CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

CBT is based on the idea that it isn't a certain event or situation that determines how we feel, but it's more about the way we interpret and think about that event or situation that affects how we feel physically and emotionally, and subsequently impacts on how we behave.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a collaborative approach, as the therapist and client work together to address the problem. It's a talking therapy but also a doing therapy and focuses on the 'here and now', and what is currently maintaining the problem.
