CBT is mainly concerned with how you think and act now, instead of looking at, and getting help with, difficulties in your past. CBT looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects the way we act. In turn our actions can affect how we think and feel. You and the therapist will work together in changing your behaviours, or your thinking patterns, or both of these. CBT has been proven to help treat a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults, young people and children.
CBT can be offered in individual sessions with a therapist, or as part of a group. The number of sessions you need depends on the difficulty you need help with. Often this will be between five and 20 weekly sessions lasting between 30 and 60 minutes each.
