Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) . can be used to treat people with a wide range of mental health problems. CBT focuses on how we think (cognition), how we feel (emotion) and how we act (behaviour), and how these three areas interact together. Specifically, our thoughts determine our feeling which in turn affect our behaviour.

In CBT the aim is to teach you effective coping strategies to deal with different problems throughout the lifespan. It further aims to change patterns of thinking or behaviour that are behind people’s difficulties and thereby changing the way they feel.  CBT is a short term, goal-oriented psychotherapy. It is a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving.
