CBT is a psychological therapy that helps clients to overcome and manage their difficulties by changing the way that they think and behave.
It is based on the concept that our thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and actions are all interconnected. For example, our thoughts may impact on the way that we feel and behave. Similarly the way we act may impact on our thoughts and feelings. Sometimes our thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviour can trap us into a negative cycle, which may lead to us feeling anxious, scared or low in mood.
CBT aims to interrupt these negative cycles by breaking down problems that feel overwhelming into smaller more manageable parts. It impacts on negative cycles to improve the way that you feel.
