Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

What is CBT?

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that helps you understand the links between thoughts, physical sensations and behaviours and how this interaction impacts upon your mood. It helps to recognise the unhelpful patterns that we can fall into and how to make changes to both our thoughts (cognitions) and behaviours and this will then lead to improvements in the way that we feel.

CBT is an active therapy that encourages you to practice skills or techniques learnt through therapy outside of sessions. The eventual aim of therapy is to work together to help you to apply the skills you have learnt during treatment to your daily life.

CBT sessions are available in person at a range of venues across Teesside, over the telephone or via Skype. The length and number of sessions will depend upon the focus of therapy, however typically it would be expected to attend sessions on a weekly or fortnightly basis.
