Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT for short is a form of psychotherapy recommended by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence for the effective treatment of a range of psychological problems including

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • general anxiety disorder or chronic worry
  • panic disorder
  • phobias including agoraphobia and social phobia
  • post-traumatic stress disorder
  • obsessive compulsive disorder
  • stress

CBT intervention is also effective for addressing modern dilemmas often associated with lack of self confidence, such as effective assertive communication and maintaining healthy drinking habits. The CBT approach can also help you to quit smoking without the need for expensive nicotine replacement products.
