What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy-CBT?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) for the treatment of anxiety and depression however, it can also be useful for other mental and physical health problems.

How does CBT work?

CBT works by changing your attitudes and your behaviour by focusing on the thoughts, images and beliefs that are held (a person’s cognitive processes) and how these processes relate to the way you behave, as a way of dealing with emotional problems. At the Bloomsbury Therapy Practice, we are committed to tailoring the therapy sessions to meet your unique needs. We, therefore, draw upon a variety of evidence-based therapeutic models, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Eye-Movement Desensitisation & Re-Processing (EMDR), Humanistic Therapy, Mindfulness-based approaches and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) informed treatment for trauma and other complex needs. ¬†We offer therapy in a time-limited, goal-orientated approach or over a longer time frame according to your needs.
