Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)


      - CBT can be completed in a relatively short time compared to other talking therapies.

      - Research has shown that CBT can be as successful as prescribed medication in treating many         types of depression and other mental disorders.

      - The skills learnt in CBT are useful, practical and helpful strategies that can be used to help a         person cope in difficult situations.



CBT cannot remove your problems, but can help you to manage them in a more positive way. There is always the risk that the bad feelings you associate with your problem may return, but with your CBT skills it should be easier for you to control them.

It is important to practice your CBT skills ongoing. Research suggests that CBT may be better than antidepressants at preventing the return of depression.
