Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) aims to
help people change patterns of thinking or behaviour that
are causing problems.
Changing how you think and behave also changes how you feel.
It is a structured approach - you agree goals for treatment
with your therapist and try things out between sessions.
More research has been done on cognitive behaviour than on
other therapies and it has been shown to work for a variety
of of mental health problems. In particular it can help depression,
anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder
and some eating disorders
