What is CBT?
CBT is an evidence-based talking therapy based on the theory that our thoughts, feelings, behaviours and our body are all connected. CBT helps us to identify problematic thinking styles and behaviour, and provides us with strategies to change these. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends CBT in treating anxiety disorders (including panic attacks and PTSD), depression, OCD, as well identifying evidence that CBT is effective in treating chronic fatigue, chronic pain, sleep problems and anger management.
