Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, also referred to as CBT, is an evidence-based treatment that has been proven to be effective through scientific research.

CBT can work to identify a problem accurately and to treat it effectively. This can prevent the problem from being drawn out and it can decrease the chance of it coming back.

CBT has been shown to be particularly effective in the management of anxiety and depression.

Many doctors today request CBT for their patients because it is short-term and goal directed. CBT is also collaborative and the focus is on building skills. These skills include changing unhelpful aspects of how you think and what you do. These changes will help you to tackle problems in the present and prevent them from coming back.

Research has shown that CBT is an effective treatment for a wide range of problems such as:

  • depression
  • anxiety
  • panic disorder
  • fears and phobias
  • chronic pain
  • disordered eating
  • low self-esteem
  • anger problems
  • addiction
  • sleeping problems

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a method of couples counselling, which is backed by over 20 years of research with significant success rates. Its emphasis on attachment has been shown to be especially effective in helping couples address conflict, create safety and foster a more secure, positive and loving bond.
