What is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)?

Although the popular press describes CBT as a new powerful therapy is not a new approach. In fact, more accurately, it is a constellation/mixture of many ideas, some new and some others that have literally been around for centuries. CBT seeks to help you understand in a straightforward, logical way how your emotional problems have occurred and what you can do to reduce your emotional distress and suffering. For the interventions (coping strategies and other exercises) used in CBT to work successfully for you, during therapy you will need to become aware of key ideas used in a CBT approach.

Thinking About
Your Thinking

A fundamental aspect of CBT is self-observation. Standing back mentally and thinking about your own thinking processes will enable you to increase your awareness of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, particularly when you are feeling distressed. Observation can assist you to become aware of the cycles that you engage in that may lead to you feeling anxious and to help you to take an exploratory approach to your problems and to your own thinking processes. When you are able to think about your thinking you will not need to be bound by the minds content and the minds automatic processes, (Ridgeway & Manning, 2008).

Common types of problems that people find CBT useful for are:

  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Depression
  • Obsessional Compulsive Disorder
  • Gereralised Anxiety Disorder
  • Anger and relationship difficulties
  • Personality Disorders
  • Psychosis
  • Trauma such as PTSD or sexual abuse

  • Health anxiety
  • Social anxiety
  • Phobias
