COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY

What is CBT?

CBT is an intensive, short-term (six to 20 sessions), problem-oriented approach. It was designed to be quick, practical and goal-oriented and to provide people with long-term skills to keep them healthy.


The focus of CBT is on the here-and-now—on the problems that come up in a person’s day-to-day life. CBT helps people to look at how they interpret and evaluate what is happening around them and the effects these perceptions have on their emotional experience.


Childhood experiences and events, while not the focus of CBT, may also be reviewed. This review can help people to understand and address emotional upset that emerged early in life, and to learn how these experiences may influence current responses to events.

CBT is an effective treatment for many psychological conditions.
These include:

  • mood issues, such as depression and bipolar disorder

  • anxiety issues, including specific phobias (e.g., fear of animals, heights, enclosed spaces), panic disorder, social phobia (social anxiety disorder), generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder

  • bulimia nervosa and binge eating disorder

  • body dysmorphic disorder (i.e., body image)

  • substance use disorders (i.e., smoking, alcohol and other drugs).

  • Stress 

  • COVID related anxieties 


CBT can also be used to help people with:

  • psychosis

  • habits such as over eating, hair pulling, skin picking and tics

  • sexual and relationship problems

  • insomnia

  •  chronic fatigue syndrome

  • chronic (persistent) pain
